My condolences to the family of Dean Gastonguay. May his light shine upon all whose lives he touched. He was such a great man and perhaps the biggest influence in my education and career. He instilled in me to tap into my confidence and provided me the tools to not only graduate from Stonehill, but that with sheer determination and desire I could overcome hurdles and accomplish my goals. Rest In Peace.

Nancy, you are in my thoughts and prayers. His years as a coach to us were formulative for me - he gave me confidence and I will always be grateful for his time so long ago. I am so sorry for your loss. My deepest condolences to your and sister. He made a huge difference in so many lives, especially mine. May his memory be a loving and healing journey toward healing during this time and always.

Mr. Gastonguay,
Sir, I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for our Country when you served with the U.S. Army during the Cold War. Millions of Americans slept safe at night because you and your fellow Servicemen stood ready to defend our Country. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

In the academic arena Paul was a man of integrity & high principals. As an administrator, he executed his duties with a seriousness of purpose in an effort to do the right thing and to make a situation better. His preparation for Graduation Day always ensured a flawless event. And, at the end of that ceremony his yellow legal pad was always full of new ideas & changes for next year's program.
Joanne & Nancy you have many happy memories of your mom & dad to bring you joy.

Paul was a neighbor and I knew him mostly in passing. My first encounter with Paul though stuck with me. We just moved in to Heron Crest, I told him I was still working and he said something like' We are not allowed to work here', like it was against the rules! He had a straight face and only laughed after I was completely confused. I thought, this guy has a fun sense of humor which just came out within 2 minutes of meeting him.

He always waved and said hi. I sort of regret not getting to know him better.

Rest in Peace Paul.

My condolences to the Gastonguay family and many thanks for sharing your dad with so many students. I graduated from Stonehill in 1978 but I had the pleasure of taking two courses with your dad. He was a great teacher and a better person. Compassionate, caring and involved with each student in his class. Great sense of humor at the right time and was truly an asset to Stonehill College .
