His early working career was spent as a lineman for over 20 years with New England Telephone and Telegraph Company and he then joined Yellow Pages as a salesman for about five years. For the past 25 years, he has been with the City of Revere, first in Parks & Recreation and later in the Division of Transportation as a school bus driver. As a school bus driver, there was none more popular or well-suited. Children loved him and he, in turn, loved them. His time with the children was always crowded with many a funny story and joyful experiences. Up to and until the time of his untimely death, he served the City as a Crossing Guard.
If Paul had a true vocation in life, it would have been politics….he had a love and an intellect for politics second to none. Politicians were most eager to have him on their team for the huge scope of political savvy that he possessed and exhibited.
During the years, he also enjoyed many Signatory Titles within City Government, among them as a board member of the Conservation Committee.
His passing has left a deep void within the Revere community. One of the only positive aspects of his death is the fact that he now enjoys the presence and comfort of his dear wife, Adele J. (Robinson) Mazzone, who died on Feb. 5, 2019.
He was the devoted father of Robyn D’Apolito of North Reading and her ‘former’ husband, Stephen D’Apolito of Revere, Michael T. Bozek of San Antonio, Texas, John B. Bozek and his wife, Sherry of Tewksbury, Nicole M. MacTaggart and her husband, Kevin of Saugus and the late Paul A.
