He composed hundreds of songs and played numerous instruments, including piano, saxophone, and vibraphone. He also enjoyed playing piano at The Tiffin Room, Joseph Smith Memorial Building, LDS Conference Center, and other venues. He passed on his love of music and theater to his family. Paul also worked at Federal Reserve Bank from which he retired after 35 years. He was a faithful member of the LDS church and served in many positions, including Ward and Stake Clerk, Executive Secretary, and various music positions. He was also a member of the Sons of Utah Pioneers. He was a loving and devoted husband, father, and grandfather.
