Paul Lionel Masse, 77, of Palm Coast, passed away peacefully on December 11, 2013, after a life well-lived
and surrounded by the adoration and comfort of his family. He was born on May 3, 1936 in Pawtucket, RI to the late Arthur and Sabrena Masse (Champagne). As a brave young man he served as a sergeant in the United States Marine Corps. Paul moved on to marry and build a family of 5 daughters, while working as a Quality Control Manager for Pratt & Whitney in West Palm Beach, FL for 34 years. Upon his retirement, he moved to the Palm Coast area in 1992 and pursued a hobby to work as a personal fitness instructor at the Frieda Zamba Pool. While Paul had an extreme passion for golf, his greatest desire was, in his own words, "bonding" with his beloved family. He will be deeply missed by all those who knew and loved him, including his affectionate four legged companion of ten years, "Pete". Paul was preceded in death by his sister, Jeanne, and twin-brother, Peter. He is survived by his loving and devoted wife of 56 years, Diana; five daughters, Denise and her husband Larry Crozier of St. Augustine, Valerie Perez of Flagler Beach, Linda and her husband Neil Baker of Palm Coast, Sheri and her husband Christopher Gopie of Palm Coast, Diane and her husband Brandon Risley of Flagler Beach; sister, Phyllis Yankee of MA; 11 grandchildren, Jennifer, Cristine, Matthew, Devyn, Justin, Bobbie Jeanne, Michael, Joshua, Cianna, Skylar, Ayva; four great-grandchildren, Maelyn, Evan, Cole, and Owen, as well as many cherished nieces, nephews, and additional extended relatives both near and far. Paul's loving family will rejoice with a celebration of Paul's life that will take place after the holiday season.
