He was born in Webster, MA, son of the late Henry Roukat and Stasia (Stawicki) Roukat, and lived in Dudley, MA.  Paul was predeceased by his brother Mark Roukat. 

Paul worked for Lelanite Corporation, in Webster, for many years.  He was an accomplished guitarist and had played with local bands, including Gravity, Veign, Revelation, Henry’s Wine, and his solo career as Paul James Project.  Paul was a passionate collector of guitars and vinyl record albums, and he enjoyed cooking and crackling woodstove fires.  He was a kind-hearted soul who genuinely had faith in the positive attributes of any individual or situation.

Paul also leaves many close friends, among them James Berry, Kevin Gelineau, John Joyce, Effie Kalterego, Markis Edmonds, and their families, who gave him support and comfort during his life and illness.  Paul also leaves behind his former band members and fellow musicians who were his extended family.
