Paul Alexander Rigano

November 11, 1935 — November 12, 2023

Paul A. Rigano, a longtime Redlands resident, passed away peacefully at his home on Sunday, November

12, 2023. He was 88 years old.

Born in the Bronx in 1935, Paul married Beverly June Morris in 1955 in Washington State. He enlisted in

the Air force and was stationed in Fairbanks, Alaska.

Paul worked as an Architect since the 1970s in Corona and Redlands. He designed several buildings in

the Inland Empire and most famously bought and restored the “Birthday Cake House” on the corner of

Brookside and San Mateo expanding his firm at that location. During the same period, Paul designed and

built his dream home at 1315 Garden Street.

Paul and Beverly had a love of traveling, whether it was a family trip to Italy or RV outings with the

Redlands Rovers. They were members of the Redlands Elks Lodge and enjoyed bowling. Paul was an avid

golfer and was proud to have two holes in one.

Paul is survived by Beverly Rigano, his loving wife of over 68 years, his son Michael Rigano, daughter-in-law Nicole Rigano, grandson Alex Rigano, niece Roberta Rigano, nephew William Morris, and niece,

Karen Alvarez.
