Paul Conescu
Paul Conescu, of Moraga, died June 11, 2022, age 78.
Paul moved to California with his wife, Liz, five years ago to be near their children and grandchildren. He suffered complications of Alzheimer's Disease and had been a resident of Aegis Living in Moraga.
Before his illness, Paul had been a talented and much-loved orthopedic surgeon for 33 years.
Born in New York, Paul was a graduate of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. He and Liz had been married three weeks shy of 55 years.
His mind was never static - he was continually inventing, imagining, adventuring, learning. Like his three brothers, he had a hilarious sense of humor.
Surviving this loss are Paul's adoring wife; his two beloved children, Ron (Lisa), of San Diego and Jeremy (Haidy) of Orinda; his three grandchildren, Alex, Sam and Josh; his three brothers, Bob (Lisa), Jon (Sandra) and Matt (Malgosia); his sister-in-law and brother-in-law, Cory and Michael Stebel; and his nieces and nephews.
Before moving to Aegis, Paul attended the group social program called LARC, at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Orinda, which provided him with well researched stimulating activities presented by experienced, thoughtful and devoted staff. When he could no longer participate in that program, he was helped and guided by expert and loving caregivers at home.
Paul spent his last two years as a resident at Aegis Living. The well thought-out programs and the stellar caregiving staff at Aegis gave him pleasure and a peaceful, loving environment that saw him through his many changing needs. The attention and careful adjustments and the love these people gave to Paul softened his experience.
Suncrest Hospice tended Paul with expert nursing and experienced advice, and the gentle approach that gives Hospice its deserved reputation for kindness and excellence.
In memory of Paul, contributions may be made to Suncrest Hospice, Walnut Creek or to LARC, 433 Moraga Way, Orinda 94563.
