Paul Edward Brouker died peacefully early Sunday morning July 24, 2022 surrounded by family and
loving caregivers at the Maine Veteran’s Home in Scarborough, Maine. He will be dearly missed. He is
survived by his beloved spouse, Marlene, and their 3 children, 5 grandchildren, and 2 great
grandchildren, as well as nephews, nieces, and cousins. Paul and Marlene were married for 68 years.
Paul was devoted to Marlene and was a great husband and father. Paul especially loved being a
grandfather and great-grandfather and had such pride in them all. He had a Christian heart and was
always a good friend.
Paul worked 37 years at the General Electric plant In Pittsfield, Massachusetts. However, his life was
molded by the Navy and the Air Force where adventure found his heart. His service in the Air Force was
during the Korean War. He loved his family, his country, and his Red Sox baseball throughout his 91
Paul and Marlene moved from their hometown of Pittsfield, Massachusetts in 2005 to be near and
watch grandchildren grow up. They lived for 15 years in York Senior Housing and enjoyed their
apartment by the beach. They made friends and served on boards as resident helpers marking some of
the most wonderful years of their life.
Paul looked tough (and he was!) but underneath was a soft and loving soul. Humor was very important
to Paul and a smile or quick joke would lift your spirits. An artist at heart, a precious gift from his mom
was the ability to play the piano by ear. You could name a song and Paul could play it beautifully. Paul
knew history and read countless books, especially military history. His favorite holiday was Christmas,
perhaps because of the miracles the holiday represents.
There will be a funeral service conducted at a future date. Paul had his favorite charities such as Boys
Town and VFW. Any contributions you give to a charity of choice will be an honor for Paul Edward
