PAUL MICHAEL ROWBERRY
Paul Michael Rowberry, age 37 returned to his Heavenly Home November 16, 2022 surrounded by his loving family. Paul was born May 8, 1985, Salt Lake City, Utah, a son of Russell Rowberry and Judy Green. He married Natalee Simmons on January 26, 2022.
He was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter- Day Saints. Paul was full of life. He dressed to the hilt. You would see him in his shorts of light colors, his Ralph Loren polo shirts that were bright colors and his Sperry boat shoes. Even in the winter shoveling snow. He loved football, he was a diehard fan of the college team Alabama and was also a fan of the Raiders.
He attended the University of Utah and earned two Bachelor Degrees, one in Political Science in 2015 and the other in Social and Behavioral Studies in 2017. He loved psychology and was planning on getting his master’s degree. While he was at college, he learned to cook for himself, but not basic meals. He learned to cook and frequently created his own recipes. He liked to stuff chicken and pork chops, usually with jalapenos or other hot peppers. He loved seafood, especially jalapeno honey garlic shrimp and salmon. He loved food to be hot and spicy, but the ghost pepper was a bit too much for him.
When he was a young boy, he did not like to do things outside. He would rather do chores in the house. He learned to love the outdoors. He liked going camping with his brother’s family, going on vacation, attending the Lantern Festivals, riding his bike and hiking. He loved to go bow hunting. He went bow hunting with his brother Russell and Michael his brother- in law who is like a brother to him, and he even went by himself. He tried and tried to get a deer but was never successful.
Paul worked for the University of Utah, Madsen Clinic as a patient specialist. He would joke that he was a secretary.
Paul was a doting husband and made sure his family had all they needed. He was a great dad and an example to his Natalee’s children. He was adored by all who knew him. Paul was a super uncle to his nieces and nephews, especially when they were young, they were definitely spoiled.
Paul is survived by his wife Natalee and her children (Bentley, Connor and JJ). His parents Russell and Judy Rowberry of West Jordan. His siblings Russell (Heather) Rowberry of Riverton, Ashley (Michael) Curtis of West Valley and Stephanie Rowberry of West Jordan, Utah. His nephews Nick, Erick, Jaxon, Remington, James and nieces Alivia and Athena. He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Frances and DeVon Green and Gene Rose. Great Aunt Sheila Croft.
