Growing up in Three Rivers he graduated from Palmer High School, Manlius Military Academy, Manlius, New York where his undefeated football team the Red Knights of 1953 were recently inducted into the athletic hall of fame. He attended the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA. In addition, Paul served honorably as a member of the United States Army. Paul was the retired Owner and President of Northern Tree Service founded by his late father, Walter, in 1932. Paul was also a member of the National Arborist Association since 1976, the Utility Arborist Association, International Society of Arboriculture, and the Construction Industries of Massachusetts.
Paul leaves behind his beloved wife Anasticia “Tess” (Theodore) who were blessed to have just this past September celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary. In Addition to Tess, Paul leaves his adoring children Lisa and her husband Peter Deane of Madison, CT. Philip and his wife Kathy Cambo of Sturbridge, MA. Paul Jr. (PJ) Cambo and his wife Miriam Siegel of Wilbraham, MA and Dina and her husband Tim LaMotte of Wilbraham, MA.

Paul was also a member of the Wilbraham Lions Club. While Paul was private with his charitable work and wished to do most things anonymously, he was always willing to do anything in support of St. Cecilia Church and the town of Wilbraham, which he proudly called home for the past 60 years. Paul was a member of the Country Club of Wilbraham and the Naples Heritage Country Club in Naples, Florida. He treasured the friendships and memories that came from each of those associations.

Dear Mrs. Cambo and Family,

“May God’s loving kindness and comfort help you and your family through this very sad time.” Psalms 29:11

Losing our loved ones that are so dear to us is such a tough part of life. Many of us know the deep pain of losing our loved ones, but we are blessed to have had them in our lives for what seems to be too short a period of time. May the wonderful memories you have help you through this very difficult time. Grief can be so hard, but our special memories help us cope. The Lord calls us all home when he is ready.

As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, I hope you feel the love and support of your family and us friends. God bless you and your family. Time and memories will help you focus on all the good times you had together, and Mr. Cambo will always be a bright light in your mind and heart.

All our love to all of you, and know that our thoughts and prayers are with you,

Dan & Caren Jones and Family
