Obituary for Paul L. Chandeysson
It is with profound sadness that we mourn the loss of Paul Louis Chandeysson, Sr. who passed away on April 13th, 2021.
Paul was raised in St Louis, and attended The John Burroughs School. He graduated from Washington University in St. Louis in 1958 with BSEE and BSME degrees, and more importantly Wash U is where he met the love of his life, fellow engineering student, Ruth. Paul served two years in the U.S. Army in TX, attaining the rank of First Lieutenant. Next he studied at Stanford earning a Master of Science degree in Nuclear Engineering in 1962.
Paul worked for Rocketdyne and Bellcomm on NASA space missions including Mariner, Lunar Surveyor, Viking, Apollo and Voyager. As the space program was winding down he entered George Washington University and received his M.D. in 1976. He worked first with patients at Rader Clinic and later combined his skills to work in research for NIH and medical device review at FDA, from which he retired in 2016. He was most proud of his work on defibrillators. Paul was honored with a Lifetime Achievement award from Wash. U in 2008.
A loving husband and devoted father and grandfather, Paul enjoyed trains, antique cars, playing piano, swimming and playing with his grandsons at the Donaldson Run Pool, and practicing his French..
Generous with his intelligence and wit, always willing to lend a hand when needed, he will be greatly and forever missed.
Paul is survived by his wife Ruth, his daughter Karen, son Paul Jr. (Mary), son Mark (Kara), niece Debbe, nephews Robert and Christopher, and six grandchildren.
