Man Has Big Heart For His Neighbors: Danville Hero

Courtney Teague

DANVILLE, CA — When times are tough, heroes emerge. And Tri-Valley is full of them.

We all know someone who's making a difference right now as we live through unprecedented times. Here at Patch, we've launched an initiative to help recognize these everyday heroes.

This submission comes from Ben Altadonna, who nominated Paul Cowell of Danville:

Is the nominee considered an “essential worker”?:

What does the nominee do for work?:
Comforts families who loses a loved one from car accidents, suicides, and other tragedies. He also is a volunteer with Danville Police. Paul also helps out at funerals at Sr. Isadores church.

Why do you believe the nominee should be recognized or honored?
Because Paul is available 365 and has been for years. He probably does more for Danville than anyone. His wife a Susan also does a lot for the city.

What’s one thing you want everyone to know about your hero?:
He is a good man. He deals with crises and death. He comforts strangers.

Thank you for all you do, Paul!
