January 17, 1961 ~ March 6, 2017
Our beloved son, was taken from us suddenly and unexpected. We are all heartbroken. He was one of a kind. We will miss his smiles, hugs, kisses and jokes. Paul was born to Henry & Lucille Mendoza in Oakland, CA. He graduated from Irvington High School here in Fremont, CA where he was active in sports. He leaves behind his father, mother, sister Cindy Belias, son Paul Jr, brother-in-law Martin Belias, late niece Bianca Belias, and nephew Blake Belias, in addition to countless relatives and friends. He touched many lives with his big heart. He never met a stranger. He has traveled all around the world as an instructor on military vehicles. His last job site was at Ft Riley, Kansas where he passed away. He loved what he did and was getting ready to settle down in Arkansas, planning to build a small dwelling in Hatfield, Arkansas. He loved hunting, fishing and this was the place where he could do it all. He leaves us with an abundance of memories, we Love You Paul, until we meet again. God Bless.
