Paul W. Weyand

Date of Death: May 22, 2012

Date of Birth: August 20, 1934


Weyand, Paul W. of Cumberland, ME, formerly of Quincy and Duxbury, MA, May 22, 2012.  He was born on August 20, 1934, the son of the late William Weyand and Mae Sweeten of Quincy.  He was a 1952 graduate of Boston College High School and 1956 graduate of Boston College where he earned a BS in Business Administration.  Paul served as a supply officer in the US Navy from 1954-57 before embarking on a career in sales and management.  He served as a sales representative and sales manager for Sweetheart Cup Corporation for nearly 20 years before moving to Franklin and Perkins of Brockton where he served as General Manager, President and Chairman of the Board over the course of the next 21 years.  Paul’s leadership transformed the local paper distributor, Franklin & Perkins into one of the largest and most successful paper and food distribution corporations in the Northeast.  During this time the company was relocated to Taunton and renamed Perkins Paper.  The company’s success was catalyzed by Paul’s vision, mentorship and concern for the well-being of employees, and the network of trust he built within and beyond the company.


Paul was the devoted husband of Judith Carlson Weyand for nearly 55 years, a dedicated father of four children and grandfather of six.  He had a warm and engaging personality and lifelong passion for athletics.  At Boston College High School, he served as president of the class of 1952, was captain of the basketball team, played football and baseball, and was voted the most popular member of his graduating class.  At Boston College, he pitched on the baseball team throughout his collegiate career.  He subsequently became a golf enthusiast and was a lifelong supporter of the Boston Red Sox, Celtics, Patriots and Bruins.


He is survived by his wife, Judith Carlson Weyand, his children: Nancy O’Rourke and husband James of Cumberland, ME, Peter and wife Donna Weyand of Dallas, TX, Cynthia Vega-Weyand of Dallas, TX, Paula Finlay and husband Brad of Cumberland ME.  He leaves six grandchildren: Kristen O’Rourke of Bridgeport CT, Tyler O’Rourke of Arlington, VA, Megan and Myles Finlay of Cumberland ME and Mikayla Weyand and George Smith of Dallas, TX.


A Funeral Mass will be held at Holy Martyrs Church, 266 Foreside Road (Route 88), Falmouth, Maine, on Friday, July 6, at 11 AM.
