Paul Robert NEVES

NEVES, Paul Robert
Passed away suddenly, with his saddened family by his side, on October 14, 2013, Paul Neves, 49, lifelong resident of Sacramento, loving fiance of Carla Coluzzi, father of Heather Julia Coger, brother of Sara Ann Neves, all of Sacramento, and cherished son of Claire Hayden Connelly of San Diego. He was preceded in death by his brother, Peter Robert Neves, of Reno, and his father, Robert Manuel Neves CPA, grandparents Manuel and Nell Neves, Les and Julia Connelly. Uncle of Kerry Renee Martello, Manuel Martello, and Lesley Neves. Paul had three grandchildren Kevin, Khamille and Khristian Coger, many cousins and two adorable cats which were a big part of Paul's life.

He attended Caroline Wenzel Elementary School, won several presidential awards in physical fitness, was on the Tennis South swim team. He attended Christian Brothers High School. Paul worked in the woodworking industry for many years, most recently for Timberwood Cabinets in West Sacramento. He was very proud of his Portuguese heritage and was a member of the Sacramento Portuguese Society and attended their many Spring festivities in Sacramento as well as surrounding counties from early childhood until this last Spring. He went camping and fishing as often as possible and loved riding his Skidoo at Icehouse and down the river, often thrilled at spotting turtles basking in the sun. He loved all wildlife and John Wayne. Perhaps now he will have a chance of meeting his longtime hero.

Fortunately, in accordance with his wishes, Pauls organs were suitable for donating to several people who now have a second chance of a better and longer life, his consummate last random act of kindness.
Interment services will be private.
