The son of the late Armand Leo and Pauline (Perkins) Lachance, Paul graduated from Gorham High School, Class of 1968, and from Boston University with a degree in Business Administration.
In 1974 Paul married Anne Woodbrey, with whom he shared many travel adventures, backyard lobster bakes, and early mornings looking over their beautiful woods and gardens. He was president of Morin Brick Company in Danville, and was well known throughout New England for his knowledge of brick, construction and architecture. He was a member of the Brick Association of America and The Portland Society of Architecture. He had passion for all things fishing, and the Maine lakes and woods. He was an avid reader, vegetable gardener, golfer, skier, and cribbage player, and loved a good road trip. Those who knew him will remember his love of storytelling, quick-witted sense of humor, kindness and generosity.”– Portland Press Herald
