My Thought and Prayers are with the Paeno Family

Mr. Paeno was past employed as a Meat Cutter for Bosco and Geers, Oswego. He was an avid fisherman and worked as a Charter Boat Captain of the Ambassador.

Mr. Paeno was a licensed mechanic and he owned and operated Joe’s Sunoco Gas Station, Oswego. He also snowplowed for many city residents for several years.
