FRAMINGHAM – Augustine Joseph Paolini, age 77, died, Wednesday, December 29, 2021 at his home surrounded by his loving family.

Born in Santarcangelo di Romagna, Italy, he was the son of the late Dante and Seconda (Squadrani) Paolini.

Joe is survived by his wife Faith Easter Paolini whom he loved dearly and with whom he shared his work and pleasure time but most importantly his unsurpassed love for his three sons, James J. Paolini of Sudbury, Jeffery D. Paolini and his wife Anne of Framingham and Jason J. Paolini and his wife Erin of Ashland. He was the proud and devoted grandfather to six grandchildren, Nicholas, Cassandra, Hailey, Hayden, Ashley and Chiara.

Joe was passionate about family and friends. He spent most of his free time enjoying life with family and friends who often became his extended family.

After finishing Nichols college, he worked for various high-tech companies in facilities development, and this is where he found his passion and transitioned into the private sector. Joe loved his work as a real estate developer and making his visions of those developments come to reality was his ambition to the very end of his life.

He was most excited and proud of the development and the team who supported him in that development known as the Cape Arundel Cottage Preserve, a single- family community, containing approximately 263 units and located in Arundel, Maine and for which it was awarded the prestigious award of 2018 Best In American Living Community and the Mereda Award by the Maine Real Estate Dev. Assoc.

Relatives and friends are kindly invited to attend his funeral Mass on Tuesday, January 4, 2022, at 10AM at St Matthew Parish, 26 Highland St. Southborough, MA 01772. Entombment will follow at Edgell Grove Cemetery,

Visiting hours at the Norton Funeral Home, 53 Beech St. (Corner of Union Ave.) Framingham will be Monday from 4-7 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, donations in his name can be made to the Dana Faber Cancer Institute,
