Samuel Anthony Paparo

June 19, 1933 ~ January 13, 2021 (age 87)


Samuel A. Paparo, 87, went home to be with his Lord and Savior on January 13,

2021.  He was born on June 19, 1933 in Philadelphia, PA to Susie G. and Frank

Paparo.  He moved to Florida in 1967 with his wife Ann, who he was married to

for 56 years.

Sam served in the Conshohocken Fire Police in Pennsylvania for 10 years.  He was

a Master Meat Cutter for 55 years, working for A&P and Publix, including in his

privately-owned butcher shop for 12 of those years.


Sam had an outgoing personality and amusing wit; he made friends with everyone

he met.  He would help anyone in need.  He was skilled at fixing just about

anything.  He loved boating, fishing, camping, and spending time with his children

and grandchildren.  He was a wealth of self-educated knowledge. He found

particular joy introducing others to new things they may have never known or

experienced before.  He would see these things for the first time again through

their eyes. 

Sam is survived by his wife Ann; sister Mary I. Weychert; nieces Susan (Peter)

Blakeley and Sandra (Douglas) Rollins; nephew William (Tara) Weychert; daughter

Bernadette (Andy) Russell, grandson Taylor; son Mark (Melissa) Paparo,

grandchildren Baylee, Presley, Evan, great-grandchildren Zoiee and Malachi; son

Martin (Jennifer) Paparo, granddaughters Katelyn, Hannah, and Bethany; and

cousin Michael (Judy) Paparo.  He has one deceased brother Anthony Paparo and

surviving niece Margaret and nephew Frank.  He will be dearly missed.
