Obituary Notices and Memorials


HUMANN, Paul Eric
HUMANN, Paul Eric Jan. 2, 1982 - June 22, 2015 The stars in our sky shine far less bright as we mourn the passing of our beloved son, brother, uncle, cousin and friend Paul Eric Humann. Paul passed away due to complications from a rare, aggressive cancer. He was 33. Paul lived his life dedicated to academic excellence in creative literary arts, and educated and enlightened all who were privileged enough to enroll in his college classes or were fortunate enough to have been matched against him in competitive collectible card games. He worked his way through college, tutoring other students in English, and later as an English instructor assisted countless others in attaining their dreams in higher education. He continued to be a beacon of hope and inspiration to all through his work in student advocacy and faculty union volunteerism at Evergreen Valley and Cabrillo Community Colleges. From humble beginnings as a young fan of our local comic book shop, enamored with the power and justice illustrated within the pages of Superman comics, he grew into a professor, advocate, writer, and collector. Paul also was known as a critic of visual mediums in storytelling, both current and classical, and the literary form of graphic novels, on which he presented at national conferences. He still inspires all to have been able to have worked with, played against, or met him. A Valedictorian of Desert High School; his college honors: Summa Cum Laude, Associate of Arts in Letters, Arts and Sciences, Antelope Valley College; Magna Cum Laude, Bachelor of Arts in English: Creative Writing, California State University Northridge; Summa Cum Laude, Master of Arts in English: Creative Writing and Graduate Certificate in the Teaching of Composition, San Francisco State University. Paul is survived by his parents, sister, grandmother, nieces, uncles and aunts, cousins, friends and brothers and sisters in gaming arms. A memorial will take place at 3 pm, Sunday, June 28, 2015 at Grace Chapel in Lancaster. "I have been, and always shall be, your friend."
