Paul J. Myrda, 37, Bellevue resident, died unexpectedly Monday, March 2, 2020. He was born April 2, 1982, in Berlin, Germany, to Joseph and Lien (Nguyen) Myrda. Paul literally grew up around the world due to his father’s military career. As a teenager they lived in Fishers, Indiana where he attended high school at Hamilton Southeastern High School graduating in 2000 with high honors. Following high school, he attended Indiana University graduating in 2006 with a degree in Biochemistry. Paul began a long distance relationship in 2003 with Emily Vandenbush. They were married on August 4, 2007, at Holy Martyrs Catholic Church.
Paul was currently employed by Roche Diagnostics as a Senior Account Executive, a position that allowed him to work from home and be with his family. This also allowed him to put his family first for Emily and the kids. He was a passionate man and his kids and cooking were at the top of the list. His cheesecakes were a favorite with family and friends. He enjoyed following many sports, but alma mater, Indiana University was first and foremost. Paul was also a converted Packer and Brewer fan through marriage. He was a member of Prince of Peace Parish.
