Paul Bjork Cederlof

May 3, 1948 ~ July 12, 2018 (age 70)

 

Paul Bjork Cederlof passed away peacefully on 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 December 20, 1967 and together they had eight children, they were 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 United States 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 is 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 Colledge, Dori Lin (Justin) Pierce, Alysia (Shawn) Humphrys, Paul B. Cederlof, Jr. (Barbie), and Trevor Cederlof.  A sister, Ann (Ralf) Niebuhr, three brothers,  Perry (Cheryl) Cederlof,  Craig Cederlof, and Dale Cederlof.  Twenty-four grandkids, and six step grandchildren, and three great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. 

A viewing will be held, Wednesday, July 18 at the Tate Mortuary from 6pm to 8pm.  Funeral services will be held at the Middle Canyon Ward at 777 East Skyline Drive in Tooele with a viewing from 11:30 to 12:45. Services will begin at 1pm. 

The family would like to thank Creekside Hospice for the kind and compassionate care they provided, especially Brit and Brooke, and a special niece, Corrie Nielsen.
