A lifelong resident of Norwalk, Bruce McLeod Paul, died Thursday, Aug. 1 at age 67.
He was born Jan. 11, 1952 in New York City, son of the late Beverly McLeod Paul and Richard Rea Paul.
Paul graduated from Norwalk High School in 1970 and received a B.S. in accounting from Post University and an M.B.A. in finance from Sacred Heart University.
He began his career in finance with Xerox Corporation where he met his wife-to-be, Rhonda McCarthy. They were married in 1986 in Ridgefield.
Paul's lifelong passion was sports and he enjoyed coaching several local teams.
He loved going to the beach in any season and was an avid fan of The Rolling Stones and attended over a dozen of their live performances, according to his obituary.
But most of all, he loved his two children, said the obituary.
Bruce had a quick wit, a welcoming smile and was always fun to be with. Bruce lived life to the fullest and will be deeply missed.
Bruce McLeod is survived by children, Scott McLeod Paul (30) of Norwalk and Carly Taylor Paul (27) of Monroe; sister Debra Paul Haines (husband Steve) of Portland, Oregon; as well as seven first cousins in California.
