Paul W. Katapodis

 

Mr. Paul W. Katapodis, of Weymouth, passed away on October 22, 2023. Paul was born and raised in the Fields Corner section of Dorchester MA. He graduated from Dorchester High School in 1965 and continued his education through an apprenticeship with General Dynamics and then eventually joined the Local 537 Pipefitters Union. Paul was a proud and extremely hardworking member of his union and dedicated over 50 years of life to Local 537. He spent his free time coaching Mill Stream Little League, serving as an umpire for the Men’s Softball League of Dorchester, and playing softball for Foley’s Tavern, where he also worked as a bartender. He had fond memories of winning the Mayor’s Cup with his softball teammates.

In his later years, Paul was a member and volunteer of the Sons of Italy Lodge #1295. He enjoyed spending time there, hanging out with his friends, setting up events, and serving on the Board of Trust. He was a proud Grampi and loved spending his weekends watching his grandchildren play football, hockey, baseball, soccer, and lacrosse. Paul loved golfing and traveling to play at different golf courses around the world. Paul’s favorite pastime, however, was spending time at the beach. Paul was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, son-in-law, uncle, and friend and he will be truly missed by all who knew him.
