Paul Francis Cressy passed away in his home after a long battle with colon cancer August 1st, 2014. Paul was born January 13th 1969, the son of Barbara Mequet Cressy, and David and Laura Sutis Cressy. Paul was preceded in death by his mother Barbara Mequet Cressy; grandparents Helen May Groves, Edmund Michael Mequet, Louis Villere Cressy, and Nellie Sarrat Cressy. Paul is survived by his wife Sarah Stokes Cressy; children Gray Villere Cressy and Helen Frances Cressy; siblings Dr. David Cressy (Rebecca), Andree Landry (Chad), Suzanne Rabalais (Steve), Nicholas Cressy, and Jordan Cressy; nieces Micah Cressy, Hale Landry, Lucy Rabalais, and Ryann Rabalais; nephews Alex Savoie, David Landry, David Cressy, and Noah Brown; beloved aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. Paul was the center of a loving, close-knit extended family, and group of lifetime, faithful friends. Paul was gracious and kind, with an infectious spirit that will live-on in all he touched. In his writings, Paul would remind us that goodness lurks in the shadow of tragedy. His resolute courage in the face of incredible adversity will continue to serve as an inspiration to those who knew him. A Memorial Mass will be held Saturday, August 9th 11am at the Chapel of the North American Martyrs at Jesuit High School, 4133 Banks Street. Visitation will begin at 9am. The family suggests memorial contributions be made to the Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation, Jesuit High School, and the New Orleans Mission.
