On August 03, 2020 Paul Gerald Meyer passed away in the comfort of his home in Stamford, CT. Paul, whose name derives from his grandfathers, is survived by his parents Tom and Christy Meyer, and his four siblings; Michelle, Matthew, Thomas and Rebecca, each of which hold a treasured place in his heart. Paul was born on December 7th, 1990 at Danbury hospital as the second child to Tom and Christy. He lived his first 12 years of life along with his four siblings in Brookfield Connecticut, where each learned how to share, argue, compromise, pray, succeed, fail, and most of all, to love unconditionally.
He thoroughly enjoyed a variety of sports, most notably football and baseball. He developed a love of sports and competition that remained with him throughout his life. His free spirit pushed him towards the testing of his own limits as well as that of his parents. His style of play could best be described as reckless and his willingness to leap before looking provided us with both excitement and terror. Although he secured some long-lasting friendships and continued his love of playing sports, his high school years were a time of great conflict. He struggled his way down some poorly lit paths whose terrain was rough and steep. Once surrounded by nothing but dead ends, he relinquished his fierce and independent nature to guide him on a road to recovery. His determination to overcome the many obstacles he faced allowed him to grow in strength and was an amazing blessing for his family. After approximately three years in Florida, he returned to the Northeast and to a better and more resilient version of himself.
He moved back to Connecticut in 2015, securing a job as an Account Manager for an Educational Supplies company. He was recently hired by a debt management institution as a consultant and was enthusiastic about the opportunity to help people who had nowhere else to turn financially. His greatest achievement was that of sobriety, which allowed him to reclaim a life of health, peace, joy, and love. This love was given so generously to his family, friends, and his beautiful girlfriend of five years, Courtney. In Stamford Connecticut, they shared an apartment, the peaks and valleys of life, and continued to grow in their love. Our family is forever grateful to her for the unconditional love and the light she brought into his life. Although he continued to fight the demons of depression that eventually overwhelmed him, the time he spent with his family, with Courtney and her wonderful family, and his amazing friends, were truly the happiest times of his life.
We will forever cherish the wonderful memory of Paul’s infectious laughter, his sense of humor, his comforting hugs, his handsome face, and abundance of love. Our prayer is that these memories which are weighing heavily on our hearts, will soon begin to help us heal and one day open us up again to all the joy he gave us. Our love for you is never ending and we thank you from the bottom of our broken hearts for the blessing of you in our life. You are at Peace.
