After his mission, Paul returned to Pocatello where he met his future wife, Sandra Longhurst. Paul and Sandra were married on December 22nd, 1971 in the Idaho Falls, Idaho temple. They raised 6 children together and were later divorced.
Paul attended Idaho State University in Pocatello and graduated in Diesel Mechanics, which he later taught for a while. Following in his father’s footsteps, Paul went to work for the International Harvester company and put his skills to use in the agricultural field. His career spanned many years and took him, Sandy and their 6 children to a number of new places.
All throughout his life Paul enjoyed learning new skills, trying new business ventures and spending time with his family.
Paul was preceded in death by his loving parents Glenn H and Beulah and his older brother Michael. He is survived by his sisters Christine and Susan, his brothers Steven and Dale, and his 6 children Bryan (Tangi), Mark (Cori), Talina (Rand) Roberts, Shauna (Sam) Hatch, Timothy (Sarah), Joseph (Afton) and 34 grandchildren.
