Paul John Kirchmyer, 54


Paul John Kirchmyer, 54, of Cranbury, passed away Tuesday, August 30, 2022.

Born in Staten Island, NY, Paul attended Middletown High School and was a 1985 graduate of the Kildonan School in Amenia, NY and achieved his Associate’s Degree from Brandywine College in Wilmington, DE in 1987.

Paul took great pride in his many years of work in food service and hospitality with fine dining restaurants. A fan of major league baseball and football, Paul also enjoyed playing golf and tennis, as well as skiing. He loved animals and was devoted to his pets over the years. Paul was also an extremely passionate fan of the music of Van Halen (The Best Hard Rock Band ever!), and especially the work and talent of The King – Eddie Van Halen – “You know my heart is true … I can’t stop loving you.”

Paul was recently pre-deceased by his birth father, Raymond J. Kirchmyer. Paul is survived by his devoted parents, Joan and Robert Prezioso, his siblings, David Prezioso and wife Tara, Robert Prezioso, Jr. and wife Rosie, Josephine Beninati and husband John, and sisters Leslie and Andrea, as well as several nieces and nephews. Paul’s heart echoes the last words of Eddie Van Halen … “I love you.”

To honor, remember and celebrate the life of Paul, “won’t-cha turn your head my way” on Saturday, September 10th from 1:00pm to 5:00pm at the John E. Day Funeral Home, 85 Riverside Avenue, Red Bank. In lieu of flowers, please make donations in Paul’s memory to the Tunnels to Tower Foundation, 2361 Hylan Boulevard, Staten Island, NY 10306.
