Paul Alan Marwedel – AE7XO

July 26, 1946 – May 1, 2014

Paul was born in Salt Lake City, Utah to Wilford Tadje and Edith Lee Young Marwedel, the third of six children.

He was a good-natured child and had many friends in Holladay where he grew up.

He attended Holladay Elementary, Olympus Jr. High and Olympus High Schools.  He then enlisted and served honorably in the U.S. Army.  Afterwards, he worked many years at Kennecott Copper.  Later he moved to the Ogden area and worked at a call center, where he met Laree Simonsen who has been a loving and supporting influence in his life.

He has two siblings who preceded him in death: Kenneth Marwedel, the oldest, and Karen Gregerson (Dave) who was the next to youngest.

His surviving siblings are Larry Marwedel (Linda), Mary Phillips (Earl) and Connie Stevens.

Paul really enjoyed belonging to the Davis County Amateur Radio Club.  They were a very central part of his enjoyment in life in the last year.

He loved learning, and was enrolled in an on-line college taking courses to graduate with a degree as a computer technician.

Even though he was plagued with many illnesses which put him in a wheelchair, and made many trips to the hospital in the last several years, he had a good attitude and was able to get on the bus and trains and get himself to where he needed to be.

This past week, everyone mentioned his jovial manner, his sense of humor and that he had a kind spirit.  However, his laughter was covering up the pain he was in.

We will miss you Paul, but we know you are in a better place.
