Obituary for Paul Thomas Coppi

Paul Thomas Coppi passed away peacefully at the age of 89 on January 11, 2019, surrounded by family. Paul was the husband of 27 years to Miryam C. (Pineda) Coppi. He was the son of the late Paul J. and Inez (Breglio) Coppi of Agawam, Massachusetts and father to the late Linda Lancioni-Perry of Easton, Massachusetts. Besides his wife, he is survived by sons Paul Coppi Jr. of St. Paul, Minnesota; Todd J. Coppi of Hudson, New Hampshire; Douglas P. Coppi of Tiverton, Rhode Island; Christopher J. Coppi of Hollis, Maine; and several grandchildren.

Paul’s father immigrated to the United States from Italy eventually taking up residence with his wife Inez in Agawam, Massachusetts where Paul was born and raised. Paul raised his children in Connecticut and Massachusetts and later resided in San Diego, California for 20 years with his wife Miryam. Paul and Miryam’s adventurous spirits led them to reside in other places such as Tennessee, Texas and Miryam’s home country of Columbia, which entailed traveling by car from Texas through all of Central America. Most recently, they moved to Rhode Island to surround themselves with family in the final months of Paul’s life.

Throughout his life, Paul took great pride in hosting holiday dinners for his family and his joy of cooking led him to obtain jobs in the food industry including head chef positions at Suffield Academy and United Airlines. Paul especially loved to cook for his children whom couldn’t wait for one of his “power meals” when visiting during college breaks. Paul’s always optimistic and adventurous attitude led him to establish a successful wedding cake hobby/business and later a vending machine business with the help of his loving wife Miryam, who brought joy to Paul’s life including during his long battle with dementia. Paul was above everything else a great provider and family man who loved and spoke so proudly of his family.

Paul’s good sense of humor and infectious laugh made it easy for anyone to strike up a conversation with him. Paul enjoyed the simple things in life including dining out, taking walks, spending overnights in Julian, California at the home of his son Douglas and his wife Heather, conversing over coffee at local coffee shops, growing tomatoes, and dancing with his Columbian friends. A wonderful person, father and husband, Paul will be dearly missed by all those who were touched by his love, warmth, smile and generosity.

I fondly remember Paul and Miryam they were a resident of 1380 Hemlock in Imperial Beach and friends of my family. I often thought of Paul and Miryam over the last few years sad to see that Paul has passed. I will forever remember Paul. -Bernadette (Schienost) Mays
