After Lois died, I didn’t think he’d be around much longer. But 4 days….wow. RIP
Grand old man of Duluth.
I have many memories of him.
Rest in peace old warrior.
The end of an era.
My Mom bought a 59 Buick from Jeno when I was a wee one. That was a great car and Jeno must’ve given her a good deal.
I walk past the Paulucci family crypt quite a bit up in Forest Hill Cemetery. (He got the family quite a choice spot.) I hereby propose a Duluth tradition wherein salesmen come by and put tiny origami/plastic/ceramic/metal grasshoppers at the grave for good luck.
(If you have no bloody idea what I’m talking about, you didn’t read the DNT article.)
An OG for sure! Way to live baller! Larger than life. The real deal.
I worked for Jeno for many tears found him to be a very tough but fair man, I always had the utmost respect for him. I learned a lot from this man and want so say R.I.P., Jeno, you will be greatly missed. God bless.
With all the talk lately of the 1% vs. the 99% this might be a good time to contemplate that Jeno was the 1% of the 1% that really “got it.” He understood that the value of people was greater than the value of money.
There are others like him and his beloved wife so let’s be cautious with our generalizations and assumptions about people based on their presumed wealth. I think of it every time I watch someone play music on the “Mama Paulucci” stage at Bayfront. I think of it every time I warm my toes in the warming house she bought for all of us at the Bayfront skating rink. R.I.P. Mr. and Mrs. Paulucci.
I just walked past the Paulucci funeral service at Glen Avon Presbyterian, and I’m struck by a question that is perhaps none of my damn business… Were either of the Pauluccis Presbyterian? Or did they have the service there for some other reason?
Ahh… It appears Lois (at least) was a church member, as it says in her obituary. You can scratch that question.
