May 23, 1961 - July 13, 2017
Paul Jonathan Cullen, 56, of Houston sadly passed away Thursday, July 13, 2017. Paul was born May 23, 1961 in Solihull, England to John and Angela Cullen. He is survived by his wife of 29 years, Yvonne, and daughters, Lucy and Julia Cullen. Paul spent the early years of his life in Bramhall, England and later attended the University of Newcastle and the University of Durham, where he earned his Master’s Degree in Geophysics. He started his career in oil and gas exploration in Scotland as a geophysicist. Paul truly enjoyed his work and it took him and his family all over the world, before finally settling in Houston more than 20 years ago. His friends and family knew him to be a generous, loyal, intelligent, caring man who loved Liverpool Football Club and a weekend on the golf course. He had a passion for music and enjoyed playing the guitar and piano, as well as listening to the symphony. Paul was a kind man with a brave heart and an understated inner strength, always keeping his sense of humor. Most of all he adored his wife and daughters and truly enjoyed spending time with his many friends and faithful canine companions, Harry and Winston. He was greatly loved by those who knew him and will be sorely missed, but wanted everyone who loved him to be happy. “Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.” A memorial service celebrating Paul’s life will be held Wednesday, July 19, 2017 at 2:00 PM at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church, 717 Sage Rd., Houston, TX 77056. It was Paul’s wish that no black attire be worn as we gather to celebrate his life. In lieu of flowers please consider contributions in Paul’s memory to the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation (http://cholangiocarcinoma.org).
