Paul was born on June 9, 1929 to Peter Marius Pedersen and Bodil Kirstine Jensen in Salt Lake City, Utah. He was an only child to this union and was their pride and joy. He was the 1st born American as both his parents immigrated from Denmark at young ages to become United States Citizens and to be closer to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints headquarters.
Paul met the love of his life, Verla Dame at the body shop “Les Taylor Motors” in Salt Lake City, Utah, where he was the shop foreman and Verla was the accounts manager. They were married on July 2, 1954 in the Salt Lake, Utah Temple.
