Paul Roberts

October 30, 1928 — May 26, 2022

William Paul Roberts, passed away Thursday, May 26, 2022, from causes incident to age. He died as he lived, without fanfare and quietly getting the job done. In our eyes, he was timeless.

 

He was born October 1928, in Clearfield, Utah, to William Robert and Enid Murdock Roberts. He was born a farmer and farmed his entire life. He possessed a quiet abiding love for the land. He was the consummate farmer.

 

He graduated from Davis High School in 1946. On June 16, 1949, he was sealed to Jean Stevenson Roberts in the Salt Lake Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints. He was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ.

 

In addition to farming and raising cattle, he drove a school bus for many years for the Davis County School District.

 

He was heart-broken over the passing of his wife, Jean, on February 29, 1992, at the young age of 63. Subsequently, he married Beverly Hill Roberts on April 16, 1994, in the Ogden Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Beverly passed away on May 8, 2016.

 

Paul was most happy when he was working, farming, driving his John Deere tractor and watching the water irrigate the crops. He was independent and always right. He was the cornerstone of our family and will be deeply missed.

 

He is preceded in death by his parents, six siblings, his wife Jean and wife Beverly.

 

He is survived by his daughter Liz (Dan) Vincent, daughter Susan  (Jeff) England, son Paul (Tracy) Roberts Jr., six grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. He is also survived by a sister, Barbara Anderson.
