Paul R. Riseman of Wayland, formerly of Brookline, entered rest on December 8, 2022 at age 81. Beloved and devoted husband, father, grandfather, and friend. Paul leaves his wife of 55 years, Patricia (Braen) Riseman of Wayland, his children Dennis and his wife Leah (Rickett) Riseman of Brookline NH, and Seth Riseman and his husband IvÃ¡n Espinoza-Madrigal of Boston, and his grandchildren Hannah, Abigail, and Sarah Riseman. Born in Boston, MA on April 17, 1941, he was the son of the late Dr. Benjamin and Mrs. Lilian (Sibulkin) Riseman and brother of the late Jay Riseman. He was raised in Dorchester and Brookline, MA. He graduated Class of ’58 from Brookline High School, and Class of ’62 from Bowdoin College. After serving in the Air Force Reserve, he began a career in insurance with integrity and a deep commitment to serving his clients. He married his beloved Patricia Joy Braen on June 25, 1967. Together, they made their home in Wayland where they raised their family. He was the most loving, kind, nurturing, proud and involved father, grandfather, cousin, and friend that his family and friends could have asked for. He never missed a parent-teacher conference, a soccer game, a dance recital, a meal, or a chance to tell his family how much he loved them. He and Pat cultivated not only beautiful houses and gardens together, but a welcoming and warm home for all.
