Counselor Paul Nyan Guah

Sunrise: September 5, 1959
Sunset: June 2, 2019

“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evils for thou are with me, thou rod and staff they comfort me” Psalm 23:4

The Guah and Anderson families deeply regret to announce the call to glory of our beloved father, grandfather, bother, uncle and cousin Counselor Paul Nyan Guah. He was predeceased by his daughter, Pauline Guah; father Mr. David Meesan Guah; mother, Ma Leayeah Guah; step-mother, Mahmee Guah; and sister, Kissten Guah.

Paul Guah was born and raised in Sanniquellie, Nimba County, as part of a large family including step-mother, and 14 siblings. He attended St. Mary’s Elementary and High School (1964 – 1976). Young Paul was an active member of the Nimba County Student Association during his matriculation at Cuttington University College, where he obtained a Mathematics degree in 1981. Paul was a Math instructor at Monrovia Central High School, G.W. Gibson and A.M.E. Zion, as well as Vice Principal at C.H. Deway High School in Tubmanberg before continuing his studies at the University of Liberia. He completed Lewis Arthur Grand School of Law in 1990 and earned a Masters in International Relations at the Abraham Banbagida School of International Studies in 2001.

Counselor Paul Nyan Guah also served as Chairman of the Elections Commission, as well as an Assembly Member of the Transitional National Assembly of Liberia before establishing the Foundation Law Firm, on Lynch Street, in 2007.

Counselor Guah leaves to mourn, his wife of 27 years, Mrs. Annie Anderson Guah, children (Paul Guah, Jr., Angeline Guah, David Guah and Prince Guah), several brothers and cousins in USA and Liberia, uncles, aunties, fellow Knights, colleagues, former students, and a host of relatives and friends all around the world.

We have started to miss his unconditional love, witty humor and unwavering courtesy. As we celebrate his life of virtue and commitment to Nimba County and justice in Liberia, Counselor Guah leaves us with the legacy of hard work, intellectual integrity and perseverance. To the many lives Counsellor Guah touched, keep those memories alive by sharing them with one another, always remembering God loves Paul best. Paul was certainly ready to go home, after 11 years as a stroke survivor in Liberia.
