Somerville News Weekly’s Special Person of the Week Paul Craven


By Frank Santangelo

6’plus tall Paul Craven was the youngest and shortest out of is family. Paul graduated high school in 1986 in Lexington/Somerville.

He grew up on the corner of Benton Road and Cambria Street and loved to play basketball with friends at St Catherine’s and summer leagues around the different parks of Somerville.

He resides with his wife and his three children in Stoneham, but still works in Somerville at the Home Depot for the past 22 years. 
Being a strong advocate for against alcoholism and drug addiction, Paul has been sober for the past 27 years and has been helping people all over Somerville to always look to do the right thing and if you need help, Paul would always help one overcome addictions by assisting them to seek the needed assistance and help guide you along the way.    
Paul has always encouraged people to live life to the fullest but in a good clean way as well as by giving back to the community and to cherish life. 
His motto in life has always been like his mom always said “Life is short so do it while you can!”

We here at the Somerville News Weekly salute you for everything that you do to make Somerville a better place.
