Paul Earl House “P-sign Paul”

03/02/1947 - 11/15/2023

Paul Earl House, “P-sign Paul” age 76 of Santa Cruz, California, passed away on November 15, 2023 of natural causes after a long illness.

 

Paul was born  March 2, 1947 to James and Opal House in Long Beach, California.  

At age 3 he learned to play the accordion and fell in love with music. Paul graduated from Western High School in 1965. His first band was NOT COOL out of Los Angeles, California. He later joined THE DEAD REDWOODS performing in Santa Cruz and other local California venues. Paul taught guitar at More Music, but it wasn’t just music that he loved. He found pleasure in all types of art and woodworking. Paul was skilled making orthopedic shoes, operated an herb shop, created aircraft illustrations for Boeing, and worked as a master carpenter for Shakespeare programs out of UCSC. He is known for his peace sign drawings on Its Beach, Santa Cruz, California.  

 

As a conservationist and active member in the community, he was involved with many marches, including his Wednesday mornings with the Ladies in Black. Paul taught Tai Chi at the lighthouse near Steamer Lane. He enjoyed and supported his favorite sports teams: San Francisco 49ers, Golden State Warriors, and San Francisco Giants wearing hats and jerseys on game days. 

 

Paul is survived by his children Britney Saito and Wyatt House, and grandchildren Taj Saito, Gavin Saito and Shorina Saito of Japan. Paul is also survived by sisters Barbara Ellwood, Mary Muncy and Debbie Spears of Arizona. Paul’s love and partner was Beverly Fleming along with their “boy dog” Jimbeau. Paul is from an extended family of aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews, with cousin Eddie Nelms of San Diego, CA being Paul’s lifelong best friend. 

 

Private Services were held Nov. 20th. Paul‘s final resting place was Seattle, Washington on Tuesday, November 23, 2023. 

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Low Power community radio or your favorite community non-syndicated radio station. 

 

Music when Soft Voices Die  (To–)

BY PERCY BYSSHE SHELLEY

Music, when soft voices die,

Vibrates in the memory-

Odours, when sweet violets sicken,

Live within the sense they quicken.

 

Rose leaves, when the rose is dead,

Are heaped for the beloved’s bed;

And so thy thoughts, when thou art gone,

Love itself shall slumber on.

  • My big brother, Paul Earl. taught me a lot being his younger sister. He took drafting in high school, so I took drafting. He played guitar and piano, so I had him teach me. We have always been close, but our journey the past seven years brought us even closer. Paul, his wonderful Bev and I had been encouraged his cancer might be cured, but cancer does not play by the rules. Paul endured and accepted change by being podi youivgvthese past years. I love you and will
    miss you until we meet again.
    Love, Mary

    We knew Paul through his loving sisters. We were able to visit with him on his occasional visit to Arizona. We loved when Ken and Mary brought him to our home. He saw where we live in Arizona through a different lense. Of course, he was from beautiful Sanat Cruz. However, we loved that he saw the beauty in the desert outside out home. He is loved dearly by his sisters, Mary and Debbie and their families. Our hearts go out to you all. Love, Bob and Teddi
