Paul Bjork Cederlof passed away peacefully on Thursday, July 12, 2018, after a courageous battle with cancer.
He was born on May 3, 1948, to Bjork Dale and Joan Child Cederlof. Paul leaves behind a legacy of love for his family, community and country. His love of music was contagious as he was always listening to something from Classical, to Modern and anything in between. He married Camille Washburn on Dec. 20, 1967, and together they had eight children. They later divorced. He then married the love of his life and soul mate Debbie Nix Cederlof on May 5, 1989, for time and all eternity in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. They spent many wonderful years together and created a spirit of love that he passed on to all of his children and grandchildren. Debbie cared for Paul tirelessly up until the final day of his life.
He served our country with honor in the First Calvary Airborne of the U.S. Army in the Vietnam conflict. He had a great sense of humor and wit, and he radiated happiness and warmth. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Paul had a very strong testimony of the Gospel of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and a love for His Father in Heaven.
He was preceded in death by his parents, and his daughter, Saila Felver.
He is survived by his wife, Debbie Cederlof; his children, Andrea (Tom) Schneiter, Heather (Brian) Gerhartz, Trisdana College, Dori Lin (Justin) Pierce, Alysia (Shawn) Humphrys, Paul B. Cederlof, Jr. (Barbie), and Trevor Cederlof; sister, Ann (Ralf) Niebuhr; three brothers, Perry (Cheryl) Cederlof, Craig Cederlof and Dale Cederlof; 24 grandkids, six step-grandchildren, three great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.
