Paul Barraco Obituary
1936 ~ 2015
Salt Lake City, UT-On the evening of September 18, 2015, Paul passed away at Intermountain Medical Center in Salt Lake City, Utah after a short battle with lung cancer. Paul was 79 years old.
Paul was born in Tunis, Tunisia on June 29, 1936 to Anna Barraco (nee Zichichi) and Giuseppe Barraco. Prior to leaving Tunis, Paul received a formal education at a seminary in Carthage, Tunisia. Paul, his parents and three brothers then immigrated to America in 1953.
Paul and his family resided in Brooklyn, New York where he met and married his high school sweetheart, Joan Braun. He then moved to Salt Lake City, Utah where they raised three sons; Joe, Tom and Andy.
Paul met and married Janet Kenney in 2000. He had a happy life with Jan and created special memories with her two children, Glenn and Kelli. They spent many happy years together traveling to visit family across the country.
Paul was a whimsical man not only with a complex mind but he was someone who could find joy in the simplest of things; a game of golf, a fishing trip with his sons and wife, a good spy novel and time watching his grandchildren swim and play water polo. To Paul, nothing was more important than spending time with his large family and good friends.
Paul is survived by: his wife Janet, sons Joe (Janice), Tom and Andy (Johanna); brothers, Peter (Rosann), Nicholas (Debbie) and sister in-law, Luci; step-children, Glenn (Magda) and Kelley, 8 grandchildren and 4 great-granchildren. Paul is preceded in death by parents, Giuseppe and Anna, Joan Barraco and brother, Loriato.
We love you grandpa for all the brilliant times you have shared with us. Your witty words of wisdom will forever be embedded in our hearts and make us laugh every time we recall them.
