1964 – 2016
Woodstock, CT – Paul Pfosi, Jr., 52, of Woodstock, Connecticut died Thursday, November 26, 2016 from a long illness. He has returned to the loving arms of his parents Lucy Hannah and Paul Pfosi, who predeceased him when he was young.
Paul was born July 17, 1964 in Chur, Switzerland. He had an incredible mind and was a very articulate writer. A poet, artist, and athlete, he spent his early years in the White Mountains where his father was the first ski school director at Waterville Valley. He attended both Holderness School and Burke Mountain Academy and was an accomplished ski racer. During his adult life he worked as a logger and carpenter, and had a passion for working with wood. In his later years he dreamed of making the world a better place through music. He loved being a father and his greatest pride had always been his children.
Paul was a caring and sensitive soul who suffered greatly from the deaths of his parents, and depression. He was a well-read, rebellious, anti-establishment, radical thinker and often challenged people to examine their beliefs.
He is survived by his sons Zachary and Isaac Pfosi; his sister Eva Merriam, and brothers Frank and Eric Pfosi; his nieces Lucy and Hannah Merriam; nephews Nick, Josh, Evan and Brent Pfosi, and many paternal and maternal aunts and uncles, and cousins, including his very special Aunt Joan Hannah.
Friends are welcome to join us for a casual gathering to share stories about Paul at 3:30pm on Saturday, December 3 at Wendle’s Deli and Café, 297 Main Street, Franconia, New Hampshire. Please feel free to drop in throughout the afternoon.
Funeral arrangements were entrusted to the Gilman-Valade Funeral Homes & Crematory, 104 Church St., Putnam, CT 06260.
