Thomas Paul Taquino, Jr (Paul) died peacefully with his family around him from complications of
Lewey Body Dementia on December 28, 2022. He was 68 years old.
Paul was born in Seattle Washington, oldest son of Rosemary and Thomas Taquino. He graduated
from St. Rita grammar school, La Salle high school, University of San Francisco (BS) and Golden
Gate University (MBA).
Paul is survived by Nancy, his college sweetheart, wife and love of his life for 48 years; sons
Michael (Natalie) Christopher (Lindsey), daughter Katie (Greg); grandchildren Abby, Patrick, Cal
and Mick; brother David , sisters Jeanne, Lisa (Steve), 8 brothers and sisters in law, 5 nieces and
nephews, and many childhood, college, and adult friends and professional colleagues. He will be
missed by all who knew him.
Paul began his business career as an auditor at Wells Fargo bank in San Francisco, followed by 8
years as an accountant at a tax firm in Southern California. After moving to Marin in 1987, Paul
joined the Pasha Group where his career spanned 22 years, achieving the position of Vice
President/Controller. He ended his career at Triple A Insurance Company as a financial analyst.
Paul was an avid athlete. He loved team sports, especially basketball and baseball. On Sunday
mornings, you could find him playing hard ball in an adult men’s league with his brother’s in law at
ballfields across the bay area. He had a wicked serve in tennis, a great jump shot in basketball, and
loved cycling to the beach from Fairfax. He instilled a love of sports with all three of his kids,
throwing the baseball or basketball with them as soon as they could walk. He coached his kid’s
teams in baseball and basketball, and also attended endless games during their grammar school
years at Memorial Park, and at Marin Catholic high school.
Paul’s children and grandchildren were his greatest source pride and joy. Precious memories of
family during vacations in Palm Springs, Tahoe and Hawaii will be with us always.
Paul was funny and irreverent, a deep thinker who loved a good conversation about world events,
and always made people feel that they were the most important person in the world. He was a model
husband, father, son, brother, friend, and colleague. We will miss him so much.
A funeral Mass will be at St. Anselm Church in Ross, CA. on January 6, 2023 at 11 am, followed by
a Celebration of Life at Peacock Gap Country Club, San Rafael. In lieu of flowers, please consider
donating in his memory to St. Anselm’s Church or to the Alzheimer’s Association.
