Paul Dean Hammelman
February 14, 1962 - January 08, 2019
All who knew Paul will remember his remarkable spirit, his generosity, and his extraordinary sense of humor. He lit up many a room with smiles and laughter, delighting in lighthearted fun while always maintaining the respect of everyone around him. He brought this gift wherever he went, from his hometown in Indiana to his early adulthood in Rochester, New York, then to the home he and his wife made in Pennsylvania, and finally, to the beaches of the New Jersey shore where he enjoyed life as a retiree.
Paul loved music, whether he was listening to a favorite album, singing in church, or enjoying a live performance in the local pub. It was a fitting passion for a man who leaves such a strong legacy, with generations of loved ones who will reflect and pass on his wisdom for years to come. After all, part of music's magic is that it long outlives the musician - just as Paul's energy, love and influence are sure to outlive him.
We cherish the memories that Paul has left us. They serve as reminders that it is not the length of our lives that matters most, but rather the ways in which we are able to touch the lives of others. The world is a better place because Paul Hammelman was in it and we, his family and friends, are better souls for having known him.
Paul is survived by his wife of 29 years, Lisa, and their children, Jennifer and Rachel; by his father Edgar; and by his sister and brothers, Cathy, Gary and Jason (Christie). Paul will also be forever remembered by his numerous nieces, nephews, extended family, and dear friends.

I am so sorry for your loss. Praying for you and your family!
I am deeply sorry for your loss. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
We wish we could be with you at this time. We are thinking of Paul, you, and your girls daily. We will always cherish Paul's warmth, wisdom and friendship, and the times we shared at YUMC. With our love and prayers.
I am saddened to hear of Paul’s passing. My deepest condolences.
I met Paul in 2005 when he joined Tyco International’s finance department in Princeton. Paul’s office was two doors away from mine and over time we became good friends. Paul was a kind, considerate and wonderful person.
Few times a month we would go to our favorite restaurant Big Fish at Market Place in Princeton and there sitting at the bar, over a glass of beer and fish tacos we would talk about work, life and family. I would treasure those moments for ever.
Paul, buddy I will miss you for ever.
Rest In Peace.
I’m so sorry. Your dad sounds like a really great guy, and helped raise a wonderful daughter.. All my best to you and your family in this difficult time.
You and your family are in my thoughts during this difficult time. I am so sorry for your loss and here if you need anything. May the memories of someone so special give you peace and comfort during this time.
I remember Paul staying overnight in 6th grade and we danced for my mom. When I stayed with him it was Sammy Terry and root beer! We had great times at IU also. The class of 1980 lost a good friend, however we were so blessed being able to have known Paul. Prayers for peace and comfort for his family. RIP Paul.
