He was the favorite uncle of many nieces and nephews.
His parents and two sisters, Sharon South (LaVar) and Colleen Marriott (Jim), preceded him in death.

He worked at Hill Air Force Base for 42 years, retiring in 2009. His most favorite job came after retiring when he worked as a grocery bagger for three years at Stop & Shop.
Paul loved the Lord and, as a member of the LDS Church, had a strong testimony of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. He, along with his wife, Diane, served two missions: One in the South Dakota Rapid City Mission from 2012-2013, the other at the Ogden Bishop's Storehouse from 2014-16.
