Beloved husband, father, grandfather, uncle and brother-in-law.

He was born in Salt Lake City, Utah on February 3, 1930 to Rosamond Mary Brown and James Woodard Henderson. He grew up in Salt Lake City and graduated from
West High School. He then served in the United States Military. Soon after he went on a mission to Tennessee for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Continuing his education, he graduated from the University of Utah in Business Management.
He spent many years taking care of his mother and singing in the Sacra Dulce choir until he found his sweetheart and was sealed to Karen Donna Bell on April 10, 1970 in the Salt Lake City Temple.
Paul studied to be an attorney, worked in real estate, sales and investments.
Paul loved God and was very faithful in his service. He was always grateful and humble for his family and for his beautiful life.
Paul loved being outside and enjoyed this beautiful earth! He worked hard and taught his children and grandchildren to work hard too.
He loved people and connected with everyone he met. In turn everyone who knew him loved him as well. He taught that through service we could have a positive impact on everyone around us. He is so loved and will be missed by so many because of his kindness and his wise soul!
