GORHAM – Paul Hamblin “Cully” Magnusson passed away the evening of Monday, April 21, 2008, after a five-year battle with colon and liver cancer. Paul passed away peacefully under the care of his family and friends at his home. Paul was born April 27, 1953, in Portland, the son of Irma and Paul Magnusson Sr. Paul graduated from Gorham High School in 1971 and attended the University of Southern Maine as well as the University of Maine at Orono before graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in agricultural mechanization. Paul participated in both soccer and baseball at the University of Southern Maine. After college Paul traveled the world in order to find the different experiences which life has to offer. Paul traveled to New Holland, Pa., after college, where he worked with New Holland farming equipment. From there Paul traveled to Argentina, where he spent months working on New Holland’s harvesting combines but more importantly he learned to love the local culture. Later in life, Paul traveled to Luanda, Angola, Africa, on a business adventure where he set to bring agriculture and other goods to the poverty stricken country. For the past five years he had worked for Gorham Tractor, selling heavy equipment throughout the state of Maine. Though Paul loved to travel, he was happiest in Maine with his friends and family. Late in life, Paul mastered the art of wood turning. For the past five years, Paul made beautiful wooden bowls, cups, lamps, tables, plates and bracelets, among other things. Nothing made him happier than seeing the look on people’s faces after he just gave them a piece of his amazing art work. Paul’s favorite place on this earth was at Camp North located in Northeast Carry.
