Paul C. Gannon


The Advocate, Thursday, January 26, 1995

Paul C. Gannon, an artist who moved to Provincetown in April 1993, died January 21 of complications due to AIDS. He was 30.

Born in North Kingston, R.I., he spent most of his life there, said Peter Donnelly of Provincetown, his life partner.

"Paul was known by many as a person of great passion and vision," Donnelly said. "He was an artist of many mediums and was self-employed in New Milford, Conn., where he gained a prominent reputation as a fine antique furniture refinisher."

He vacationed in Provincetown with family and dreamed of one day making it his home, Donnelly said. That dream was fulfilled when moved here to live with him in 1993, Donnelly added.

In addition to his life partner, he leaves his mother, Anne Gannon of North Kingston; several brothers and sisters; his grandparents; and many friends.

A celebration of his life will be held at 1.p. Saturday at the Unitarian-Universalist Meeting House in Provincetown.

Memorial donations may be made to the Unitarian-Universalist Building Preservation Fund of Provincetown.
