Paul N. Grisso, 72, of Dartmouth, died at St. Luke's Hospital on November 26, 2017. He was survived by his wife of 36 years, Mary (Iannaccone) Grisso.

Born in New Bedford, he was the son of Julia (Furtado) Barboza and Paul Grisso. He was a graduate of Fairhaven High School, where he played basketball. He graduated from Kinyon-Campbell Business School in New Bedford.

Paul served in the U.S. Army Reserve for nine years. He worked in the printing industry for over 45 years and was the cofounder of JS Data Forms in New Bedford, and co-owner of 136 Express Printing in Bristol, RI.

Paul loved going to the beach and was an avid sports player of basketball, tennis, and volleyball, but his passion for over 40 years was in skiing.

He was the brother of Nancy (Barboza) Lunquest and the late Stephen Grisso.
