PAXTON - Paul F. Bellows, 74, of Paxton, died Friday, December 21, at the UMass-Memorial Medical Center, after a long illness.

Bellow III and his wife Joanne of Shrewsbury; twelve grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.

Previously, he owned and operated Worcester Wood Products, a cabinet making company in Worcester.

Paul was a member of St. George's Church. He was former member and president of the Worcester Kiwanis International Club.

Paul was a fun loving person with a big heart willing to give of himself to benefit others. Beyond his kindness and generosity, he was also a skilled story teller. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.

I've always appreciated Pauls sharing during his illness from his home by phone, especially about his book, Divine Presence, which left an indelible mark of his Spiritul experiences on my soul.
I'm sorry for your loss Judy and Nikki. May our Lady of Fatima comfort you both during this time of mourning.
Sincerely yours with Jesus Crucified, Mary

My deepest condolences. I had the pleasure to meet Paul back in 1992 when I joined Kiwanis. He made a quick and powerful impression on me. He was a man of great character,integrity and a thoughtful and giving person. We would always chat for a few minutes when he visited my business and I always seemed to learn a little something from him each time. But we would always share a laugh and he made my day a little brighter. He loved his family deeply and my thoughts and prayers are with your all at this time. God bless!

So sad to hear of the passing of Paul Bellows, who I met in October 1985. Put me through an "intake" and suggested I not pick up the first one! He referred me to Hi Noon (then at Pearl Street) where I was last week. Like many, I owe my life to Paul, and all the others I've met in the fellowship since !!!
