Paul Gary Pavano

February 11, 1957 ~ May 16, 2021 (age 64)


Paul Gary Pavano, 64, of Plainville left his family and friends heartbroken following a fatal motorcycle accident in Florida on Sunday, May 16, 2021. 

Born in New Britain on February 11, 1957, he was the son of the late Thomas J. Pavano, Sr and Lucy (Pandolfo) Pavano.  A lifelong resident and graduate of Plainville High School, Paul was well-known and much admired throughout his community, one that he held in high regard.  As a small business owner alongside his father, and later his wife and son, he spread his Plainville pride each day as he supported other local businesses and was a familiar face at family owned restaurants. He was a man of deep faith and hard work ethics with passion for motorcycles and antique cars, traveling to auctions throughout the east coast and U.S.  A devoted husband, son, father and brother, Paul’s infectious personality and zest for life created an endless circle of friends and acquaintances; all who will miss his presence and bright spirit each and every day.

He is survived by his wife and best friend of 34 years, Robin Marie (Dupuis) Pavano; his adored children, Josh Pavano and his girlfriend Brianna Krom, Haley Pavano and Tyshawn Pavano; his brothers, Richard and David and his wife, Michelle; many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and dear friends.   He was predeceased by his brother, Thomas J. Pavano, Jr and his sister, Carol Anne Pavano.

In lieu of flowers, Paul’s love for his hometown may be remembered with contributions to the Plainville Community Food Pantry, PO Box 233, Plainville, CT 06062.
