CHESHIRE – Paul J. Sirois, Jr., 30, of Cheshire, passed away on Sunday, April 25, 2021, as a result of complications from COVID-19. He was the loving and devoted father of Elizabeth Sirois.
Paul was born in New Britain on August 23, 1990, oldest son of 13 children, to Paul and Michelle (Holman) Sirois. Paul was a kind, compassionate man, and at age 7 he joined Pack 96 Cub Scout troop in his pursuit of becoming an Eagle Scout. Paul not only attained that rank in scouting but lived its motto, never losing sight of his passions, always being there for his friends and family throughout the years. Paul continued to bless the lives of all those around him by being an active member in his church, St. Bridget of Sweden, as well as becoming a fourth degree knight with the Knights of Columbus.
