Paul Ernest Romero

May 9th, 1959May 17th, 2018

Paul E. Romero passed away May 17th, 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada.  He was born May 9th, 1959.  He married Ronda C. Romero May 30th, 1981.  They created a home together in Lafayette, CO where they had Brittany, and two years later, Lance.  From the midnight shifts that ended with taking the kids to school and the construction of a tree house, Paul was always a dedicated and loving father.  Eternally fearless and fiercely protective, there was never a question to the lengths Paul would go for his family. 

 As his children grew, Paul took up the responsibility of coaching baseball, basketball, tennis, and volleyball, as well as assisting with boy scouts and girl scouts.  He was Lance’s music critic, but he was a fan first…and the rock Brittany could always lean on.

 With his commitment to his wife Ronda, and their faith, Paul was a Eucharistic minister at St. Louis Church.  He was a board member on the Louisville Cultural Arts Council, a board member for his community HOA, and a landscaping liaison.  Family and friends knew (they better!) cheer for the Broncos while they shared the food Paul made with love…he always served it with a side of EXTRA hot chile.

 It was through those meals he strengthened his relationships as a son in law, brother in law, Uncle, Nino, and most importantly, husband and father.  With those he loved and cared for so deeply, he traveled and shared his helpful nature, sense of humor, and honest opinions. 

 As time went on he became a grandfather to Angelo, Ava, and Addison.  It was then he became “Pompo”.  With his grandchildren he enjoyed so much, Paul did everything from practicing cheer routines, camping at Santa Maria, joining in on nap time, and rushing to the hospital in the middle of the night…Pompo was there.  Pompo became the name everyone knew for Paul.  As a new light in his life, his grandchildren provided him with infinite amounts of joy and happiness. 

Paul became so many things to so many people…his genuine good nature and kind and helpful spirit resonated with each and every person he met.  He was taken from his friends, family, and loved ones far too soon, and though he will be missed by everyone every day, he will never be forgotten. 

 "Good night my dear" "Good night mi' amour"

I have been overwhelmed by the love and support my family and friends have shown me, my mom and my brother. My Dad would be so happy to see everyone come together to celebrate his life. He wanted a big birthday party this year, 5/9/59 and he was turning 59!! That will be a date we will never forget. He celebrated his birthday the following week with great life long friends. He will always be in my heart. My Dad, my best friend, my rock. Love you Dad, see you in Heaven ~Brittany
Our deepest condolences at Paul's passing. May the love of family and friends ease your grief and give you comfort. We will be thinking of all of you.
Ronda, Brittany and Lance- I can’t believe Mr. Romero is resting in peace. I remember the times he brought you to school, my Kindergarten class. He was always smiling, happy, a very nice father, husband and human being. I am so sorry to hear the news at the Recreation Center this morning. Sorry I missed the services, I was in CA. My condolences to all of you and the extended family. Rest In Peace. Myriam Charry Doerr
