Paul R Maurer

May 15, 1959 ~ February 12, 2019 (age 59)

Paul R. Maurer passed away peacefully on Feb. 12, 2019, following a long, courageous battle with cancer. Paul persevered to fight his illness to the very end always putting his family and friends first and foremost.

Born May. 15, 1959, in Plainfield, NJ, Paul was the youngest of 5 children, son of Frances (Giardino) Maurer and the late George R. Maurer. Paul is survived by his wife, Eileen (Barbato) Maurer, daughter, Colleen Maurer and her husband Robert Kiernan, and his son Christopher Maurer.

Paul leaves behind his beloved mother, Frances Maurer, sister, Susan Hollinger and her husband David, brothers, Peter Maurer and his wife Pamela, Robert Maurer and his wife Maureen, and George Maurer and his wife Roberta, as well as many cherished nieces and nephews. 

When Paul wasn’t spending time with family and friends, he could be found fishing, enjoying hockey, or watching Mel Brooks movies. Paul would like to be remembered for the inappropriate jokes he told, the laughs he shared, and the unflinching support he offered to everyone he cared for.
