May 8, 1951 — January 12, 2023

Paul Chase Cosgrove, age 71, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, January 12, 2023, at his home in Foxborough, Massachusetts.  Born in Boston, Massachusetts on May 8, 1951, he was the son of Paul C. and Sally A.

Following his graduation, Paul began his career as a self-employed home painter, always ensuring his customers’ expectations were met with friendly service.  He made his home in Lynnfield, Massachusetts for a short time before settling in Foxborough.
