Paul Frederic, 60, a longtime employe of the Defense Logistics Agency who retired last week for reasons of health, died of congestive heart failure Sunday at his home in Woodbridge.
Mr. Hillery served as a navigator-bombardier with the Army Air Forces in Europe during World War II, flying 65 missions and earning the Distinguished Flying Cross.
After the war, he was a civilian supply officer for the Navy in New Hampshire and Pennsylvania. He later worked for the Defense Department in Ohio before coming to the Washington area in 1967. His last assignment with the Pentagon was as a supply consultant to NATO forces in Europe. He lived in Springfield for 12 years before moving to Woodbridge.
Mr. Hillery was a member of the Holy Spirit Catholic Church in Springfield.
He was a former president of the Emerald Isle Division of the Ancient Order of Hibernians and was a past president of its D.C. chapter.
Mr. Hillery was a native of Cambridge, Mass., and a graduate of Boston College.
Survivors include his wife, Patricia, of Woodbridge; four sons, Charles, who is serving with the Navy in Naples, Italy, John, of Hawaii, Mike, of Lorton, and Paul Jr., of Woodbridge, three daughters, Liz Fairchild of Galion, Ohio, Pat Warner of Christiansburg, Va., and Pamela Hillery of Woodbridge; three sisters, Lorraine McDonald of Watertown, Mass., and Kathleen Enos and Barbara Tierney, both of Beverly, Mass., and four grandchildren.
The family suggests that expressions of sympathy be in the form of contributions to the USO.
