Paul A. Bright, Jr.

Paul A. Bright Jr. loved life and lived it with enthusiasm, joy, and an open heart that warmly encompassed everyone he loved and who loved him. 

He loved the Boston Bruins, Aerosmith, cooking, his two cats, and, most of all, his cherished daughters, granddaughter, family, and loyal friends. 

A Revere resident for most of his life, Paul passed away suddenly on Sunday, April 26. He was 62. 

Paul is survived by four daughters, Amanda, Dayna, Diandra, and Danae Bright, all of Revere; a granddaughter, Julianna; three siblings, Kathleen Bright-Procopio and her husband David of Saugus, Revere Fire Chief Christopher Bright and his wife Mary Ellen of Wakefield, and Amy Ciccone and her husband Eric of Marblehead. He also leaves many nieces, nephews and cousins and his aunt and uncle, Marilyn (Toomey) and Raymond Longden, of Fairfield, Conn. He was the former husband of Diana(DeSimone) Bright of Revere. 

Born in Revere to the late Paul Sr. and Katherine (Toomey) Bright, Paul attended the Immaculate Conception School and graduated from Revere High School, where he skated for the school’s strong hockey teams and was chosen as a team captain in 1975.  He would remain an ardent sports fan throughout his life, especially of the Bruins and Patriots. 

He enjoyed the company of a group of loyal friends who often gathered behind the old Revere Cinema on Broadway, and, in reference to the place where they hung out, called themselves the Show Yard Kickers. Once, as youths, they painted a mural on a wall in tribute to the rock band Aerosmith, and Paul would remain a passionate fan of their music throughout his life. 


He was employed for many years in the culinary industry, working as a chef for Marriott Hotels and prominent corporate and event catering companies. Throughout his life, Paul enjoyed cooking and good food, and at one point contributed a recipe column to The Revere Journal.

Throughout his life, Paul was a joyous and warm presence whenever he was around family and his many friends, always quick with a smile, a laugh, or a humorous remark. He had the gift of making people feel good when they were around him.
