I didn't know Paul very well  in high school but he generously volunteered to help us on the 10th reunion commitee in 1978. He was a really nice guy and had a very gentle and a kind way about him. I wish I had gotten to know him better in high school. RIP, Paul.

I am so sorry to hear about Paul.    We went out once or twice, as we met through work.   He was a very nice man.    We worked together for a long time.   I am so sad for his family.

Paul was one of the five of us that hung around together at school and after school activities. although he joined the group in the junior year he was well liked by all of us and contributed much to the group.

I was very happy to see Paul at our 50th reunion and delighted that he joined us at our table. I enjoyed talking with him again and catching up on both old and new news.

He will be surly missed by all and me.

RIP Paul. Your work on earth is done.

I am so sad about this.  I knew Paul since 8th grade, and every reunion we would talk and talk, catching up on family, etc.  I saw him at this last Reunion.  Paul didn't stay long, was going back to rest......I didn't know forever,  God Bless you, Paul.....will really miss you.

Paul and I became better friends after I met my (future) wife, Pamela, at a party for Paul's brother who was going into the navy. Paul was actually closer to my best friend Dean Short. Also Deceased. The circle keeps getting smaller.

Sad to hear about Paul. We'd actually known each other since 5th grade, though not parcticularly close friends as he was even more quiet and less obstrusive than I am/was. I am glad I got to see him at the 50th. I had not been to a reunion since the 10th, but after I missed the 45th, Paul messaged me through this site and we caught up a bit. The world loses another nice guy.

Paul Raymond Taylor passed away October 2, 2018 with his wife and eldest son at his side.  He attended College of Marin and Sonoma State after graduating from TL. At 18 entered the real property title insurance industry and proceeded to build a well-respected, stellar, 50-year career as a great coworker, boss, mentor, colleague and friend. He worked in Marin or Sonoma County until 2009, moving to Yreka, California, and finally in 2012, settling in Roseville.

A quiet, kind, gentle man with a sense of mischief and subtle humor, he was preceded in death by his brother Mark and father Gene. He is survived by his wife Sharon, son Sean (Marcella), son Colin, brother Richard and his mother Ruth, as well as numerous nephews, nieces, grandnephews and grandnieces.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the American Cancer Society, Boys & Girls Clubs of America or a favorite charity. A memorial service will be held November 3rd at 2 p.m. at St. Augustine of Canterbury Episcopal Church, 1850 Wildcat Boulevard, Rocklin, CA 95765. There will be a Celebration of Life Spring 2019 in Marin or Sonoma County.


Paul and I met Junior year in Mr. Thurman's algrbra class and have been close since.  I could not have had a more loyal and trustworthy friend.  We attended countless baseball games over the past 50 years; we last got together for a Sacramento Rivercats baseball game on August 25th.  Thanks to all for your fond remembrances which I will pass on to Paul's family.
