The reports doesn’t confirm Paul Vasquez had Covid but it sure sounds like he did based on his symptoms and rapid decline. Very sad.
Before his death Paul complained about his health situations on Facebook:-
“I’ll get my results in two days, however at this point I’m fairly certain that I don’t have it. I didn’t have a fever. Something else is going on with me.” he revealed on May 5th
“No matter where I was or what I was doing, Paul was a bright spot, always enthusiastic about the world,” Borchard said. “I tend to be a guy who hangs a lot of crepe and manages to focus on the bad things going on in the world. We were a good balance to each other.”
Vasquez took ill health recently and complained about it on his Facebook page. On May 5, he was tested for COVID-19 and posted a picture, captioned in part, “I’ll get my results in two days, however at this point I’m fairly certain that I don’t have it. I didn’t have a fever. Something else is going on with me.”
The summer of 2010 brought Paul Vasquez into a lime light as an Internet sensation when late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel tweeted about the Mariposa resident’s “Double Rainbow” YouTube video, died Saturday. He was 57.
The viral video was shot by Paul Vasquez from his mountainside home in January 2010 and shows a set of rainbows. He notes in the caption that the camera could not capture the rainbows’ intensity and brightness, but that’s not what’s had 46 million people watch it. It’s his reaction.
It was a 3-minute shot, 29-second video, Mr. Vasquez cries out things like, “It’s a double rainbow all the way across the sky!” And, “It’s so bright!” And, “What does it all mean?” There are lots of whoas, and whoos and oh-my-Gods. He laughs during it. He sobs.
The video actually got the apparently laid-back, good-natured guy, called “Bear” public attention, to far more than 15 minutes of fame. For instance, he and a famous “Friend,” Jennifer Aniston, did a Smartwater commercial together. He also did ads for Microsoft and Delta Air Lines.
Mr. Vasquez who was born in East Los Angeles, died early Saturday afternoon in the emergency room of John C. Fremont Hospital. His loved ones began posting on Facebook later Saturday about his passing. “Somewhere over the Rainbows, Paul,” friend Jeanne Miller commented on his last photo.
