Paul S. Brim, 68


 Paul S. Brim, 68, of County Road died peacefully on Wednesday, March 20, 2019 at the Gosnell Memorial Hospice House with his loving wife by his side.


 Paul was born in Portland, Maine on November 21, 1950 the son of the late John Brim Jr. and Roberta (Gervais) Brim. He graduated from Scarborough High School in the class of 1969 and continued his education at Southern Maine Vocational Technical Institute.


 On September 11, 1971 he married, the love of his life, Paulette B. Cowley at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church in South Portland.

 In 1972, Paul went to work at the Sappi Paper Mill in Westbrook where he was still employed right up until his death. When not working Paul could usually be found on his farm where, together, he and Paulette raised, bred, and showed horses. He loved being on the farm not only working with the horses but also planting fields of pumpkins, squash and assorted vegetables all of which were grown and donated to local schools so that every child could have a pumpkin at Halloween, donated to churches and food pantry’s so that no family would go hungry. Paul would always make sure that family and friends always had fresh vegetables to eat. He was a long time member of the New England Horseman’s Council, the Maine Horse Association, and the American Saddlebred Association of Maine. Paul will long be remembered by family and friends as a kind, hardworking, loving man who was willing to help anyone.


 Paul’s family would like to extend a special thank you to his friends and co-workers in the winder room at Sappi Paper Mill in Westbrook for all of the kindness they shared during Paul’s illness.


 Paul was predeceased by a sister Sharon Beard. He is survived by his wife of 47 years, Paulette Brim of Gorham; two aunts, Jenny Daniels of KY and Anita and her husband Ernald Gervais of Scarborough; two special childhood friends, Glen Pooler of Scarborough and Gary Pooler of Gorham; many cousins.
