Paul A. Delaney
July 31, 1933 - December 4, 2014
Paul A Delaney, 81, of Pine Plains, NY, husband of Liliane Delaney, died peacefully after a long illness on Thursday, December 4th at Calvary Hospital with his family at his side.
Paul was born to Hypolite Delaney and the former Mary Aucoin in Nova Scotia, Canada and had the fondest memories of his childhood – being one of 7 children. He left Nova Scotia, joined the US Air Force and traveled the world on his many assignments in the military. While stationed in France, he met his future wife, Liliane and married in 1959.
After several military-related moves throughout Europe, Paul and Liliane eventually moved back to the US, settling in Flushing, NY. Paul enjoyed a long and productive career at Con Edison until his retirement in 1993. Soon after, Paul and Liliane retired to their dream home in Pine Plains, NY which reminded him very much of his birth home in Nova Scotia, Canada. Paul could always be found working inside his shed and building something beautiful with his vast collection of tools. Paul was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather who loved family gatherings.
In addition to his beloved wife Liliane, Paul is survived by his daughters Michelle Delaney and Carol Mangan and her husband, Chris. Paul is also survived by 5 grandchildren Andrew Kousouros, Jaime Kousouros, Michael Kousouros, Kyle Mangan, Luke Mangan and great-grandson, Isaac Dunn. Paul is also survived by his loving sisters Helen Holmes, Anne Ginty, and brother, Lionel Delaney. He was pre-deceased by his brothers Joseph, Arthur and Amedee Delaney.
