Paul  Konstadt

January 15, 1950 – July 24, 2019F

Paul Konstadt lost his battle with cancer on July 24, 2019, surrounded at home by his family. He was the beloved husband of Marin Konstadt, and the father of Nicholas and Marissa Konstadt. 

Paul, born on January 15, 1950, in New York City, was the oldest of three boys. He is survived by his extended family with whom he enjoyed many adventures and gatherings. Paul bought an 18th-century colonial home in Salem, which he lovingly restored to its original style, and where he raised his family. 

Paul’s heart was always in politics and public advocacy. During Paul’s journalism and writing career, he worked on air in TV news, and as a local and national reporter/producer and editor for National Public Radio. Paul’s voice was well known to WBUR listeners in the 1980s. He also worked as a business journalist at the Lowell Sun before working as a financial writer for Standard and Poor’s, and other business publications.
