Beverly, MA

Paul Francis Bridgeo passed peacefully at Beverly Hospital in the presence of family on Thursday, February 22, 2024. Irish music was Paul’s favorite, and it was playing when his soul passed to his Lord into the kingdom of heaven where he will rest eternally. Paul was a cherished husband, a devoted and doting father, loving brother, a great friend to many and a very special grandfather and great-grandfather. When the grandchildren came along starting in 1989, Paul decided he would be called ‘Old Pa’ to his grandkids, the grandkids, however, had other ideas shortened that to ‘OP’ and that was his affectionate moniker to the family forever more.Paul grew up in Peabody, graduated from St Mary’s High School in Lynn, Mass. After graduation Paul proudly served his country during the Korean War in the United States Air Force. Paul then matriculated on to UMass Lowell where he earned his engineering degree. Paul worked for many years at the Teradyne Corporation in Boston as a senior testing engineer.For over 64 years Paul was the devoted and loving husband of Nancy Bridgeo. They built a life together filled with love and kindness…they were true sweethearts in every day and in every way. After marriage they made a special home for the family on Pine Road in Lynn for many years…there were plenty significant, special and memorable events held at 13 Pine Road for the entire family. Paul and Nancy would spend many years vacationing in Florida over the winter, these trips were a very enjoyable respite away from the rigors of our New England winters and was a special trip every time to both of them. Paul and Nancy relocated to West Yarmouth in retirement to start a new and exciting chapter in life and spent many years enjoying life to its’ fullest on Cape Cod and all it had to offer to two adventurous & affectionate sweethearts. Many memorable family vacations were had at 129 Wimbledon Drive with the children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren…Wimbledon Shores beach became the summer destination to all. Paul and Nancy were proud members of the Sons of Erin Club on the Cape and spent countless, joyous nights there with the many enduring friends they made there listening to Irish music and sharing special times.Paul is survived by his children; Barbara and James Hegarty of Danvers, Karen and Wayne Lockwood of Danvers and John and Maggie Bridgeo of Danvers. Grandchildren; Matt Hegarty and Sophie Lovett of Beverly, Ryan Hegarty and Katie O’Connor of Beverly, Christopher Lockwood of Danvers, Caitlyn and Zachary DaSilva of Danvers, Adam Bridgeo of Danvers, Joseph Bridgeo of Danvers.

He loved to watch all the major tour events and would share his love of the game with family & friends. Paul was a long-time member of the Gannon Golf Club in Lynn, Massachusetts and was known to many there as “Mr. 88” as he played the course with consistent prowess over many rounds enjoying the time with his friends, relatives and neighbors. Walking the Gannon Golf Course and enjoying nature was special to Paul whether he was playing a round or out hunting down lost golf balls with his children in the woods.Though Paul has left us physically here on earth, he lives on in the spirit and memory of a life well lived, well experienced and very well enjoyed…no stone was left unturned during the journey of his life. His memory will be cherished by the many relatives and friends he leaves behind. He wills to all a tapestry of love, loyalty and family values that will be carried on with zest by his children and grand/great grandchildren moving forward. We can all picture Paul now raising up a glass, with a sparkle in his eye, passing on his favorite blessing…Slainte!!!Rest In Peace Paul and God speed.A Memorial Service will be held in Solimine Funeral Home, 426 Broadway, (Rt129), Lynn on Saturday, March 2, 2024 at 11am.

Christopher Charles Morneau

Died : Feb 19, 2024

location-icon

Beverly, MA

Christopher Charles Morneau, Affectionately known as Chuck, crashed the gates of Heaven on February 19, 2024, from his hometown in Beverly, Massachusetts. Chuck was a cherished member of the Beverly community often self-proclaimed or referred to as the Mayor of Ryal Side. Chuck was the neighborhood watch, he looked out for everyone. We used to joke that someday there would be a statue of him in this neighborhood. Often found “observing” from his front steps, he knew everyone, and if you were lucky enough to stop and talk to him, you were on your own because he could talk! Not known for his ability to end a conversation his family would walk away giggling for the poor soul trapped and trying to. Chuck enjoyed music of all kinds, his endless knowledge of rock and roll was unmatched. If you could name the song title he knew the rest, which album, the year it was released, surviving band members, what kind of guitar was used, and who covered it. He was the music trivia champion. He was always impressed with his wife’s knowledge and would try to stump her in their many rounds of music trivia. He would say “If you can get this one, you are the champion”. Chuck was an avid “collector”, he loved collecting old bottles, lanterns, tools, oil cans, newspapers, magazines, metal, glass, all the above and then some. He still had every concert t-shirt he ever owned. Anything rusty and old would find it’s way here just for the simple fact that it was cool. Hun, someday please guide me through this collection of yours, I know you will. Chuck loved just being outside and could be found most times around his home busy doing something. He was an amazing carpenter, and he leaves behind many treasures built by his two strong hands. Most recently he had finally completed building a shed for himself that he had been working so hard on customizing to his own needs, he was proud of his progress, and we were so happy for him to have his own space for his master craft. Chuck loved fishing, camping and ‘heading North’, North to the mountains. Chuck had fond childhood memories of his grandfather’s camp on Brandy Pond in Naples Maine. Above all else, Chuck was a family man. His wife and his two boys were his world, and undoubtedly the best part of his entire life. He was a beyond proud Dad, actively involved from school plays, dances, baking cakes for Cub scout parties to beaming with Panther Pride at every football game and wrestling match. Survived by his wife and best friend Jennifer Morneau who he met at the Topsfield fair on her 16 th Birthday, and his two sons whom he loved fiercely, Rowan Morneau and Julian Morneau. Family and many great friends that he considered to be his family. “I looked out this morning and the sun was gone, turned on some music to start my day, I lost myself in a familiar song, I closed my eyes and I slipped away”. We will miss you forever. Husband. Father. Friend.
