Paul W. Mailloux, 67, of Peabody, died unexpectedly on Sunday, July 13, 2014 at Massachusetts General Hospital.

Born in Lynn, on September 20, 1946, he was the only child of the late Wilfred and Madeline (Bucceny) Mailloux. 

Paul leaves his wife of 44 years, Marguerite “Meg” (Michaud) Mailloux, and his children: Kristin (Mailloux) La Terza and her husband, Michael, of Stoneham;  David Mailloux of Peabody; and Jonathan Mailloux and his wife, Rosa Licea-Mailloux, of North Grafton, MA, as well as his beloved sister-in-law, Dorothea (Michaud) Kuchinsky, of Peabody, and many nieces and nephews. He also leaves eight grandchildren: Maria, Matthew, and Meghan La Terza of Stoneham;  Josephine and Gabriella Mailloux and Liliana, Angelica and Esperanza Silva of North Grafton, MA.

He was a graduate of Lynn English High School, Class of 1965, and earned his Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in History from Salem State College.

He taught Science in the Danvers Public Schools for 31 years and was the director of the Dunn Middle School Planetarium in Danvers for nearly two decades. One of his greatest passions was entertaining and educating the children and adults of the North Shore and beyond in the wonders of the astronomical world. He was also a devout Catholic who led musical worship in area churches for nearly 30 years.

He is continuing his passion for teaching by donating his body to Harvard Medical School to help educate the next generation of doctors and other health care professionals.
