Floyd W. Paullus, passed away quietly on November 29th in the home he built over 70 years ago in Los Altos. Floyd grew up in Mt View, the youngest of two boys, of Evelyn and Wallie Paullus. He went to San Joe State and after 2 years enlisted in the Marines. There he flew cargo planes support in the western pacific during the war.
Upon the end of the war, he returned home to his wife and high school sweetheart, Bernice to start a family and a job in the home construction business. This job started his life, long love of building houses and eventually lead to his own construction company. He started out small, building tract houses in the area and eventually building beautiful, customized homes in the Atherton and Menlo Park areas.
Even with all this going on Floyd always found time for a quick game of golf on Saturdays with his “special group” of four. He also found time for his family and some amazing camping and fishing trips all over California and beyond, including a cross country trip to Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, and Lake Louis. Floyd and his first wife celebrated 35 years of marriage before she succumbed to cancer in 1978.
