It is with sadness that we announce the passing of John (Dave the door dude) Paul on March 19, 2014, in Pomerado Hospital, at the age of 72. Dave was born in Pueblo, Colorado, and grew up in El Cajon, California. It was in 1978 that he moved to Ramona where he spent the remainder of his life.|
Dave was a talented and gifted carpenter and he had a passion for classic cars and memorabilia. He was a collector of many things!
Dave is predeceased by his daughter, Evette Gabrielle, and parents, John Jr. and Betty. He is survived by his daughter, Andrea (Mike); granddaughter, Lindsay (Spencer); grandson, Loren; great-granddaughter, Emily Gabrielle; sister, Susan; niece, Michelle; nephew, John Wayne; and his adopted family, Larene and Gary, who along with many good friends supported and cared for Dave every day.
As Dave did not want a funeral, there will be no formal service. Instead, sit back, share a laugh and have a beer with your friends and family.
Dave has been laid to rest in the rose garden of the Nuevo Memory Gardens in Ramona.
In lieu of flowers, please make donations in Dave's name to the Ramona Senior Center.
Bonham Bros & Stewart Mortuary and Cremation Service assisted the family.
