October 12, 1971 ~ March 4, 2007
Paul Colin Jimenez, a 35 year old native resident of the South Bay, passed away on Sunday, March 4th, 2007 in Torrance. Born in Long Beach, California, Paul resided in Redondo Beach for his entire life. Paul was a member of Our Lady of Guadalupe Church, and also a member of the Elks Club. He attended El Camino College and planned on becoming an electrician with the IBEW.
Paul's passion for life was his family and friends. There wasn't anything he wouldn't do for them at any time of any minute of any day. Though a man of meager earnings, he always found ways to celebrate, and enrich our lives; a giver, a lover, and compassionate man left him loved by everyone who met, and knew him. With his bright smile and quick witty jokes, Paul could always change a somber moment, and we will always love and remember him for this.
Paul has said, "The battles won should not come from triumphs, and good fortunes over others, those riches can be measured, and at the end of the day you would be left with only yourself and your fortune. Give, feed, love, and inspire. Those riches are eternal and will last till the end of time."
He is survived by his mother Eleanor Colin Jimenez of Redondo Beach CA; brothers Norbert , Tib, Gus, and Joe; their wives Tamara, Ima, Susan, and Liza; girlfriend Lisa McHenry; nephews Devin, Lauren, Jake, Colin, and Jari; and niece Molly.
A gathering of family and friends will be held at Rice Mortuary in Torrance, CA on Thursday, March 15th, 2007 from 5 to 9 pm, with Rosary at 7pm. The service will be held at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in Hermosa Beach, CA on Friday March 16th, 2007 at 10:30 am, and will continue at Pacific Crest Cemetery in Redondo Beach.
