Paul Joseph Brazeau

April 21, 1927May 7, 2019

Paul Joseph Brazeau is now in the loving arms of God. He was born April 21, 1927 in Winchester, Massachusetts and passed on to his eternal reward on May 7, 2019 at Mission Hospital. His family and friends all know he is being told, "Well done, thy good and faithful servant." Paul led an exceptionally full life. He took everything God put in his soul to do, and did it to the max. At the age of 17 he joined the Navy where he learned to be an electrician. In later years he started his own business. Being the entrepreneur and leader that he was, he built or bought buildings and businesses, giving hundreds of people jobs over the years. He also gave to many, many deserving charities over the years. He was beloved by all of his colleagues and employees. They knew he was strict, but fair. If you had a problem, you could go to Paul. He would listen attentively to all sides of your story and be the voice of reason. Paul is well-known for his love of thoroughbreds. He and his wife purchased "Brazeau Thoroughbreds" a farm in Hemet where he raised his race horses. He was often seen at any of the local race tracks, especially when his own horses were racing. But Paul is perhaps best known for designing and building the beautiful San Clemente Villas with his wife Aileen in 2002. The couple didn't just own the building, they were the chief administrators of it on a daily basis. All 170+ residents and 130+ employees felt like Paul was family as did he, of them. Paul is survived by his wife, Aileen, and his children Debbie Kopenhefer, Leslie Brazeau, Mark Brazeau and Danny Brazeau, 7 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.
