Waltham – Paul Sears was never one to complain about the cards he had been dealt. In fact he counted his blessings and among them were his 'girls'. For over ten years Paul battled a brain tumor and with that, came many complications and debilitations. From its early diagnosis he beat every odd with strength, grace, and dignity.

Paul died in the comfort of his home on Tuesday, October 23, 2018 surrounded by his wife and daughters. He was 60.

Born October 24, 1957. Raised and educated in Waltham. He was a graduate from Waltham Vocational High School. He worked for over 18 years for United Parcel Service based in Watertown. Paul and his wife owned and operated All Seasons Florist in Waltham for over eight years. He found his passion for designing and managing a floral shop at a young age at the original Anderson's Florist, Moody St. Waltham.

Paul loved all things outdoors and enjoyed every season that New England had to offer. Whether it was skiing, ice fishing, time at Singing Beach in Manchester by the Sea, Cape Cod, hiking, camping or backpacking in the White Mountains. Paul had a deep appreciation for the beauty in nature. He was an avid New England Patriots and Boston Red Sox fan.

Paul leaves his wife of 31 years, Diane M (Baker) Sears and their twin daughters, Jessalyn M. Manzaro (Robert) of Millbury and MaryJane Sears (Alex Resca) of Amherst, New Hampshire; his granddaughters, Elliana and Isabella Manzaro and was anxiously awaiting the birth of a new grandson, Robert Paul Manzaro; his in-laws (late Robert) and Barbra J. (Ferris) Baker of Waltham; brother-in-law, Timothy Baker; sisters-in-law, Jodi Baker Humphreys & Richard, their son Benjamin of Framingham; Pamela (Baker) Coleman (late Martin) and the late MaryJane Baker.

Funeral services were private.

Memorials in his name may be made to the National Brain Tumor Society, 55 Chapel Street, Newton, MA 02458. Please direct your donation to the Pediatric Research Initiative, in memory of Paul Sears.
