Paul R. Pelland Obituary
Paul R. Pelland, 79, of Holiday, Florida formerly of Marshfield died suddenly on July 10, in Tarpon Springs, Florida. Paul leaves behind his wife of 57 years Phyllis (Opelski) Pelland, their children Rick Pelland of Pembroke, Pam (Pelland) McKenzie of Marshfield and her friend Philip Joy of Salem, New Hampshire, and Pat and his wife Donna Pelland of Marshfield. He is also survived by his grandchildren Elissa (Pelland) Carroll and her husband Justin, Jen McKenzie, Ricky Pelland and his wife Carrie, and Keri McKenzie. He was predeceased by his parents Joseph Eugene and Ida Pelland, sister Jean Campell, and brothers Joseph and Robert Pelland. Paul grew up in the Mission Hill section of Roxbury and attended Roxbury Memorial High School. In the early 1950s, he became a skating instructor at the Marshfield Roller Rink. In 1966, Paul and his wife bought Marshfield Family Skateland, where he shared his passion for skating with many families and friends around the South Shore. Marshfield Family Skateland was a place where many friends became family. Paul also made sure to give back to the community and used roller-skating as a way to raise money for children suffering from muscular diseases. After owning The Rink for 19 years he and his wife decided to retire to Florida, where Paul followed another passion, baseball. In the late 1980s he started working for the Blue Jays organization in Dunedin, Florida. Paul was a kind hearted man, who always had a joke to share, a story to tell, and a nice thing to say about everyone he met. Paul will be missed by his family members and friends. Visiting hours will be held in the MacDonald Funeral Home, 1755 Ocean St., Rte. 139 in Marshfield on Tuesday, July 15, from 4 to 8 p.m. Due to Pauls passion for helping children with muscular disease the family asks that in lieu of flowers that contributions be made in Pauls name to , 931 Jefferson Blvd #1005, Warwick, Rhode Island 02886.
