Paul Daniel Kerwin of Waterbury, passed away on May 8, 2020, following a prolonged battle with cancer. He was born on December 23, 1951, to Daniel V. Kerwin and Mary C. (Shea) Kerwin.
Paul is survived by his brother, Dr. Cornelius Kerwin, and his wife, Ann, of Bethesda, Maryland; his nephew, Michael Kerwin, his wife, Kara, and their daughter, Violet; his nephew, Alex Kerwin, his wife, Darcy, and their children, Jesse and Sidney; his cousins Elizabeth Sweeney and Constance Kerwin, and his godson, Sean Hale.
Paul was a graduate of Sacred Heart High School and Eastern Connecticut State University. He was a lifelong student of history and art, and generously shared his knowledge and passions with others. Those close to Paul will always be reminded of him by Renoir’s painting The Luncheon of the Boating Party.
Since 2003, Paul was a much-loved and respected member of the Connecticut Men’s Gathering (COMEGA), where he touched countless lives, inspired men to be their best, and will always be held as an example of honesty, authenticity, and compassion.
Paul treasured his family and friends as the most important things in his life, and many counted him as a best friend, confidant, and brother. His home in the Bunker Hill section of Waterbury was an oasis to his friends, who spent hours marveling at his gardens, pouring through his books, and enjoying the ever-changing artwork on the walls.
The Kerwin family extends special thanks to Timothy Habegger, Kathleen Kelley, Judith Macri, Debby D’Agostine, Philip Moore, and Joe Moschella.
Services for Paul will be held at a later date.
