Paul Randall Babcock, Jr.

May 19, 1932 ~ December 9, 2021 (age 89)


Paul Randall Babcock, Jr. passed away on Dec 9. 2021. He is survived by his wife, Janice, children from his 
previous marriage; Randy, Stephen, Beth and Jonathan, stepdaughter Karen Horan, along with six 
grandchildren, three step-grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. Paul was predeceased by his 
parents and a stepson Edward McSweeney. 

Paul was born in Trenton, NJ on May 19, 1932 to Charlotte and Paul Babcock. He grew up in Frenchtown 
NJ, graduating from Frenchtown High School and Lehigh University with a BS in Civil Engineering. After 
college, he served in the United States Navy as a Seabee.  

After his military service, he had a thirty year career with the American Bridge Division of US Steel Corp, 
which involved designing, fabricating and erecting bridges and buildings throughout the country. During 
that career, he earned a Professional Engineering license.  

During his younger years, he was active in Father-Son programs with the South Hills YMCA of Pittsburgh 
and then served as Scoutmaster of Troop 22 of the Alleghany Trails Council of the Boy Scouts in Mt. 
Lebanon, PA. Paul always loved the outdoors. Canoeing on lakes and rivers was something he loved to do 
starting as a youngster growing up just a short walk from the Delaware River. Raising a family in the 
suburbs of Pittsburgh in the 70’s and 80’s meant becoming a Pittsburgh Steelers fan. This remained so 
even while he lived his later years in New England Patriot country.  

After Paul retired, he enjoyed playing golf and was active with the Model Railroading Club where he lived 
at Oak Point, MA.  Paul also enjoyed many trips to the beaches of Cape Cod with his wife Janice and her 
family, as well as trips to Myrtle Beach and Aruba. 

A memorial service will be held on December 15, 2021 at 1 PM in the O'Neill Funeral Home, 59 Peirce Street (corner of School Street) Middleboro. Relatives and friends are respectfully invited to attend.
