Paul Meidhof, 91, of Edison, passed away peacefully Tuesday morning at home with his family by his side. He was born in Metuchen, NJ, in 1931, son of Herbert and Annette (Gafney). Paul was a master woodworker who enjoyed countless hours in his workshop creating furniture and cabinetry. A jack-of-all trades, he was the ultimate handyman capable of repairing just about anything. He was fun to be around, hard-working, and generous. Paul was always willing to drop what he was doing when asked for help. He enjoyed long walks in his neighborhood, gardening, and was an avid reader. He proudly served in the US Navy on the USS Liddle from 1950 to 1952. He was a long-time parishioner of Saint Matthew’s Church in Edison and was a founding member of the Saint Matthew’s Fathers' Club. Paul was a loving husband and a devoted father who cherished his family.
Paul was predeceased by his parents; brothers, Herbert and George; and sisters, Audrey, Annette, Gloria, and Patricia. He is survived by his devoted wife of 65 years, Christine; his brother, Alan; his children, Charles and wife Carrie, Christine and husband Ralph Colyer, Patty and her late husband Joe Bussiere, Paul and wife Marie, Barbara and husband Peter Mosca, Thomas and wife Nicole, and Maryann and husband Matt Jennings; eleven grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.
