Paul “Butch” Angelo Borsari, 81

Jan 14, 2021

Paul “Butch” Angelo Borsari of Naples, FL died in the early morning hours of January 9 at home, exactly as he would have wished to pass: surrounded by music and the love and laughter of his beloved wife and children. He was born March 25, 1939 in Wareham, MA to the late Leopoldo and Mary (Gubellini) Borsari and grew up with his siblings Peter (currently of Marion, MA) and the late Maribeth in the home their father built. He graduated from Wareham High School and Tufts University and was a member of Alpha Tau Omega. He served as a Naval Reservist and worked his entire 40-plus year career with the Foxboro Company, starting as a Civil Engineer and rising to Vice President of several departments, until his retirement in 1999.

He married the late Carol (Mattos) in 1965 and they raised their children in the house he and his father built, in Raynham, MA. Family adventures included the infamous cross-country camping trip; his Elvis impersonation; getting stuck under a fence sneaking into the Jimmy Buffet concert; and trips to Galeazza, Italy to visit his family.

In 2008, he married Paula, who with him “fit like hand in glove.” They spent these past dozen years in sunny Florida, dancing, wining & dining, golfing, and enjoying their time together. 

Butch leaves behind a large family who loves him deeply: wife Paula of Naples, FL; children Paula Tufts of Wareham, MA; Patricia Raynard of Middleton, MA; Michael Borsari of Fairfield, CT, and their spouses, as well as stepchildren Jacqueline Lupo of Moosup, CT; Jeffrey Little of Smithfield, RI; and Gregory Little of W. Greenwich RI, and their spouses. He was proud Nonno to Jessica, Carla, Diya, Liza, Leo and Laura-Jane and Grandpa to Sydney, Francesca, Anthony, Adam, Ryan and Aiden. He had many nieces, nephews, cousins and life-long friends throughout the country as well as in Italy, where parts of his family still reside. 

Funeral services will be private and held in accordance with COVID-19 restrictions. In the meantime, memorial “donations” may be made to your nearest liquor store.
