Paul B. Martino, 53, a lifelong Methuen resident, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, July 14, 2020, surrounded by his loving family at High Pointe Hospice House in Haverhill. He was the son of Elizabeth Brewster and Bennie Martino and the husband of Sharon M. (Busta) Martino, with whom he shared twenty-five wonderful years in marriage.
Born in Lawrence, Paul was raised and educated in Methuen, graduating from Methuen High School, class of 1985. He began working at Anixter Bros., Inc. in Methuen, until he returned to school in 2006 to become certified in HVAC. He worked for Haffner’s and then moved on to Townsend Energy in Danvers where he excelled and was able to open his own business, P. B. Martino Heating and Burner Services, LLC, in Methuen.
A devoted family man, Paul made sure he was always available for his family. His most cherished memories centered on holidays spent with his wife, children, grandchildren, and extended family. He loved his trips with Sharon to the White Mountains, which afforded him time in nature, a place he found so peaceful. In recent years, family trips to Disney World with his grandchildren brought him much joy.
Paul was predeceased by his brother, Michael Martino, and his father-in-law, John Busta.
In addition to his wife and parents, Paul is survived by his children, Michael P. Martino of Methuen, Jennifer Boudrow and her husband Jason of Methuen, Frank Cloyd and his fiancée Kelly Binette of North Andover; grandchildren, Tyler, Makenzie, and Averi Boudrow, Jayden, Makayla, Rory, Greyson, and Laykin Cloyd; siblings, Cindy Saab of Salem, NH, Linda Moriarty and her husband Mark of Salem, NH, and Frank Martino of Salem, NH; his mother-in-law, Theresa Busta; several brothers and sisters-in-law; and many nieces and nephews.
