Paul A. Weeks ’75

Bangor – Paul Allen Weeks, Esq., 70, died peacefully with family by his side Friday, December 1, at Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor, following complications from a fall while walking his dog, Professor, fondly known as “Prof,” in Fairmount Park. Paul was born February 17, 1953, in Portland, the son of Dr. Allen and Helen Weeks, and was raised in South Paris.

He graduated from Oxford Hills High School, Class of 1971, Bowdoin College, Class of 1975, and the University of Maine School of Law in Portland in 1980. Through mutual friends while at Bowdoin, Paul met and later married Johanna “Gig” Cobb of Longboat Key, Florida, who was attending Smith College in Northampton, Mass. Paul practiced law in Bath before moving to Bangor in 1985, where he practiced until his retirement.

In 2013 Paul had surgery for a spinal fistula which necessitated the use of a Rolator, but it did not prevent him from doing many of the activities he loved, including driving to visit dear friends and family out-of-state. He was an outdoorsman who loved to canoe and, especially, ski. While in high school, he joined the National Ski Patrol at Mount Abram Ski Area in Greenwood and, even this past winter, was still skiing at Sugarloaf and Sunday River as part of Maine Adaptive Sports & Recreation Association with the help of his longtime ski buddy, Daniel Boutin, of Portland.
In recent years he enjoyed volunteering as a SCORE mentor and working with the Maine the Volunteer Lawyers Project. A fine writer who especially enjoyed adding a little humor in letters or readings, Paul never failed to come up with great (but often lengthy!) expressions about politics, nature, and the state of the world.

Paul was predeceased by his parents and his wife. He is survived by his sister, Janet Foster, and her husband, Ed, of Minneapolis, Minnesota; his sister Joni Averill White and her husband, Ralph, of Bangor; his daughter, Abagail Weeks of Bangor; his son and hiswife, Nathaniel and Catherin Weeks, and his grandchildren, Lillian and Philip, of Bedford, NH; and several nieces and nephews. He is also survived by his sisters-in-law, Susie Tomanoff of Bedford, NH, and Laurie Cobb of Culemborg, Netherlands, and their husbands and families.
