About Paul Anderson

Paul was born April 3, 1968 in Park Rapids, MN on his mother’s birthday. As he grew, he excelled in the arts and in sports, eventually participating at the MN State level in both cross country and baseball, and singing in All State choirs. He attended Gustavus Adolphus College, keeping a family tradition. He played varsity baseball, toured internationally with Gustavus Choir and graduated in 1990 with honors and a BA in Speech/Communications.

Hired by Artsmarketing Services Inc., Paul moved to Toronto, spending the next 7 years training over 75 of the company’s managers with his energetic leadership. Upon relocating to California, he fell head-over-heels in love with Michelle Brubeck, married her in April 1996, and settled in Irvine.

Paul’s high standards were undeniable. His commitment to God, family and friendship was foundational and easily visible through his words and actions. Whether conducting business, coaching children’s sports, singing in church, or relaxing with family, he always invested himself in the lives of others.


The family would like to express our heartfelt appreciation for your participation in Paul’s life. We are grateful for the outpouring of love, support and prayers that have been given in his honor. Please continue to uphold Michelle and the kids in your prayers.
