Paul A. Avalos

Feb 20, 1964 - Jul 22, 2022


Paul Anthony Avalos, age 58, passed away peacefully in Sacramento on Friday, July 22, 2022, with his family at his side. Paul was born in Sacramento on February 20th, 1964.  He graduated in 1982 from Foothill High School in Foothill Farms and attended American River College.

Paul is survived by his mother and father, Margaret and Theodore Nasca, spouse, Dani Avalos, son, Paulo Avalos, brothers David Avalos Jr (Debbie), Michael Avalos (Tina), Teddy Nasca Jr.(Angela), sisters Patricia Avalos, Elizabeth Parnell (Jim), and preceded in death by his brother Frank.

Paul’s personality had some of the best qualities you would hope for in a person. Whenever he walked into a room, his smile, magnetism, and charisma changed the whole atmosphere. Friends and family always knew when Paul showed up because a wave of roaring laughter and energy would envelop the room. He was also an extremely generous man. He would always give you something, either a quick bite or his time, to make sure you were comfortable.

Growing up and throughout his life, Paul played many sports (wrestling, soccer, baseball and golf), but soccer was his favorite. He played soccer from elementary school well into his 40s. Paul always had sports on his mind. Any type of pre-season games, he was either watching it on TV or sitting by the radio listening to 1140 KHTK.

Paul was loved by many and will be dearly missed by his friends and family and co-workers. His Celebration of Life service will be held at East Lawn Sierra Hills in Sacramento on Saturday, August 20th starting at 10:00 AM PST. A Celebration Reception will be held at the Citrus Heights Community Center after Burial Service. Paul’s smile was warm and special, and we hope to see it when we meet again.

Flowers will be gladly accepted at East Lawn Sierra Hills. Please deliver either

Friday, August 19th or the Morning of Saturday, August 20th, the same day as the services.

    Paul – I already miss you. When we graduated high school, I had asked Dani to take some photos of me. I had 4 shots left. She took 2 of me and 2 of you. That’s how I found out you were dating her.

    You got to meet my relatives in France and love the comment “chick-ta-dit” from my Berrichonne aunt.

    I hope that you can provide guidance to Dani & Paulo when they need it. You are there to soothe their pain and feel their love for you.

    My brother Paul always enjoyed whatever life came his way. Easy to talk to and not a care in the light of the conversation. His saying “nothing matters” My brother always help smooth our conversation with a good feeling. That is what I loved about him.

    I always knew it would be a fun day at work at Mercy General when Paul was at work. He always had the wittiest quick jokes that had me laughing. A hard worker and a great coworker. You will be so missed Paul. Love to your family from Mercy General Crew.

  • Micheli Nasca says:

    We were always so excited when we got to see Uncle Paul! His positive energy always filled the room whenever he’d arrive. He made my childhood all the more fun and memorable with his sense of humor and love for us. I will always remember every time I got on the phone with him he would start off with a really loud “Micheliiiiiiiiii” and hold it for a minute straight, and whenever we’d see him in person he would give us a really big, long hug. You can always tell how much love he had for us because he wasn’t afraid to show it! I’ll always remember how fun it was to go to his house in the summers and swim in the pool and have barbecues in the backyard – not to mention the fish sticks that were all our favorites. There are so many memories that I’m so grateful to share with him and I’m so happy and proud to call him family. Thank you Uncle Paul for always making life fun! I love and miss you, until we meet again ♥️

    Love you my friend, Brad L. Collins Sr.

  • Angelica Nasca says:

    To my dear Uncle Paul: Thank you for being a huge part of my life and giving me so many fun memories from childhood to now. Visiting Sacramento won’t be the same without you — spending the day at your house was always the highlight of my trip, and I’ll always remember the laughs we shared together driving in your truck (you always knew how to make me laugh so hard until I cried 😂). I keep thinking you’re going to walk through Grandma and Grandpa’s door and yell out “MAGELICAAAA” when I hear the doorbell jingle. I hope you know you’re immensely loved and are missed by so many. Gonna miss your hugs, your laugh and your jokes, but now it’s heaven’s turn to enjoy them! I love you always and can’t wait to see you again ♥️
