Paul Charles Livesay

Age 32, of Bloomington, MN
Passed away unexpectedly on November 18th, 2010. Preceded in death by Russell L. Campbell, Father-in-law; He will be deeply missed by his Wife, Laura; Son, Joshua; and Daughter, Stella. Mother, Karen E. and Father, Robert C. Livesay; Brother and Sister-in-law Troy R. and Tara Livesay; Mother-in-law, Rebecca Campbell; Brother-in-law, Matthew Campbell; Grandparents, Joann and Charles L. Wood Sr., and many uncles, aunts, nephews, nieces and cousins.
Paul worked at Quality Bicycle Products in Bloomington, MN as a Digital Imaging Specialist. Family and friends cared deeply about Paul and will miss him greatly.
Memorial Services will be at the Honsa Family Funeral Home, 2460 East County Road E, White Bear Lake, MN Monday at 7:30 P.M. with gathering of family and friends from 5:30-7:30 P.M. In lieu of flowers, Memorials preferred for Josh (age 6) and Stella (age 3).

Thursday night shortly after 9pm we learned that Troy's little brother took his own life.  Thankfully we had arrived in the Twin Cities on Wednesday night and could quickly join Troy's parents. Paul had long struggled with depression and had battled chemical dependency.  He was loved and will be missed by many. We ask that you please pray for Laura and their children Josh and Stella and for Troy's parents Bob and Karen. 

If you attend on Monday night please know that Laura respectfully asks that you not speak to the children about the cause of Paul's death, she would like to protect them from that right now, they know they lost their daddy and that is enough to process. As many of you know the grief process is more complicated when suicide is the cause of death.  We encourage anyone that wishes to help to give memorial gifts directly to Laura and the kids. 

Thank you,

Troy and Tara and tribe
