Raising money to bring one of Music Industry Icons back home to his resting place

Los Angeles, CA December 22, 2009- Known industry musician Kowan "Q" Paul, dies at the age of 38 on December 14, 2009.

"He suffered multiple seizures and died on the way to the hospital," says his brother Jeremy Paul. "Never before has Kowan had seizures." His untimely death, based on preliminary autopsy results, was caused by a blood clot. Kowan leaves behind many family members, friends, and fans. Unfortunately, over the last 2 years, Kowan's health prevented him from being involved in his passion, music. In turn, this adversely affected him financially. Kowan did not have life insurance and the family needs help with transporting him, as per his wishes, to be buried in Peoria next to his mother.

In an effort to bring Kowan back home to Peoria, fund raising efforts are now made available through the Kowan Paul Memorial Fund. In this time as fellow musicians, family, and friends, the family is asking that everyone show Kowan the love he willingly gave to all. Donations can be mailed to Kowan Paul Memorial Fund c/o Jeremy Paul, P.O. Box 4632, Downey, CA 90241 or by visiting . Any remaining funds will be placed in a trust fund for his children.
