Paul Bisiaux

Augustin Paul Bisiaux IV, after a lingering illness, went home to be with our Lord on Nov. 14, 2013. He was 66.

Please join us for a celebration of life ceremony and potluck at 2 p.m., Dec. 14, at First Baptist Church, 1866 Ridge Road, Grass Valley, immediately following the Nevada County Toy Run. Food dishes may be brought to the church as early as 10:30 am if you are participating in the run.

“Paul” was born to Augustin (Gus) Paul Bisiaux III and Mary Lucille Bisiaux on April 24, 1947, in Grass Valley, Calif., where he has spent most of his life and where he attended Nevada Union High School. Paul served in the Army during the Viet Nam war and worked in the local logging industry until it closed down. Then he went to work for Nevada County Fleet Division as an auto mechanic, retiring after 20 years of service.

His interests included stock car racing, bowling, golf, playing at the occasional casino, going to the movies with a friend, fishing and boating, and he was an avid motorcyclist (dirt and street).

He is survived by his sister, Ronna (John); sons Augustin Paul (Augie Paul) Bisiaux V (Dawn) and Kenneth L. Bisiaux (Melissa); grandchildren Augustin (Gus) Paul Bisiaux VI, Bay, Daisy, Eva, Joshua and Alissa; and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.

Paul was preceded in death by his parents, two sisters, aunts, uncles and cousins.

He will be remembered for his sense of humor and constant jokes and for having a kind heart and the willingness to share what he had with those in need. His presence will be greatly missed by many.

A grateful thank you to Crystal Ridge Care Center, Hospice, Dr. Gill, Dr. Burt, their wonderful caring staff members and to his special friends who stood by his side daily during this long illness — Paul R, Scotty, Debbie, Leland, Star, Aloha, Alice and especially, Polly.

We request that instead of flowers, please donate to your favorite charity in honor of Paul or donate a toy and/or nonperishable food item to the Nevada County Toy Run on your way to his memorial and potluck on Dec 14.
