Paul Berg Poulsen, 45, passed away unexpectedly April 28, 2012. He leaves behind his number one fan, his supporting and loving wife Kathleen, and his beloved sons Christopher and Tyler. Paul is survived by his parents, Ann Poulsen and Villy Poulsen, and his brothers, David and Michael. Born in Palo Alto, California, he called the Bay Area home and lived in the house that he built for his family in Los Altos. Early on, Paul found his calling in the construction and remodeling business and followed in his father’s footsteps and earned his general contractor’s license. Paul founded his own company and met with success, working hard and playing hard as he grew both his family and business. Paul’s other passions included cars, boats, waterskiing, soccer, fishing and travelling. Paul’s good nature and huge smile is missed by the many lives he touched.

Memorial services will be 11a.m., Monday, May 21, at St. William Catholic Church, 611 South El Monte Avenue, Los Altos, CA 94022 with reception directly following at St. William.
