Paul Clark Revlin
Paul Clark Revlin passed away unexpectedly on November 18, 2022 while riding his bike. He was 42 years old.
Paul began his education at the prestigious Starr King Preschool where he double majored in trikes and snack time with a minor in climbing. He matriculated to Monte Vista Elementary School followed by a three-year stint at the Santa Barbara Middle School. Paul then took his considerable talents to Santa Barbara High School, before relocating to Los Angeles and earning a degree in Psychology.
In Los Angeles, Paul found his true calling as a behavioral therapist for children on the Autism spectrum. He made it his life’s work; Paul worked at the Lovaas Institute, worked with inner city youth at A Place Called Home in South Central LA, and most recently as Behavior Consultant for STAR of CA.
It was while working at the Lovaas Institute that Paul met the love of his life, his future wife, Kelly. The two were instantly inseparable, and they were married in 2012 at the Santa Barbara Zoo. Paul was the most amazing, loving father to his two sons: Chase (7) and Finn (5). Both share his love of soccer, his incredible sense of humor, and his gigantic heart. He also leaves behind his parents, Nancy and Russ Revlin, his brother, Scott Revlin (and family), as well as a large community of family and friends who adored him.
Paul was a tremendous spirit, incredible son, and brother, wonderful husband and father, encouraging teammate, dedicated soccer coach, and the friend that everyone could count on. His passing leaves this world a less loving and fun place, but Paul would encourage us to carry on hugging our family, barbecuing for friends, learning a new magic trick to amaze a child, taking on a challenge like a triathlon, hiking a beautiful canyon or simply by going camping.
The family is planning a celebration of life in Orange County later in December. Information on support for Kelly and the boys can be found at https://gofund.me/9133800e
