Paul was born January 15, 1954 in Salt Lake City, Utah to Douglas D Callaway and Catherine “Kae” Callaway. Paul was raised in Kearns, Utah and graduated from Kearns High School in 1972. Paul started working on the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad (D&RG), where he would spend 42 years as a brakeman, switchman and conductor as the company transformed to the Western Pacific, Southern Pacific and Union Pacific Railroads. In 1978, Paul met Lori Newton, who would become his wife of 38 years. They raised two boys, John and James, in Sandy, Utah.
Paul loved the outdoors and loved to spend time on the slopes skiing the weekend away. He was always interested in learning new things and teaching his kids about how the world worked. He was a jokester with a laugh that everybody who met him would remember. He was a loving husband, father and grandfather and will be missed.
Paul passed away on August 31, 2019 and is preceded in death by his parents Douglas and Kae and his brother Kevin. He is survived by his wife Lori and their children John (Kathy) and James. He will be missed by his two grandchildren Jakob and Izabella who he affectionately nicknamed “Jaker” and “Cabellas.” He is also survived by his brother David (Cher) and sister Cathie (Michael).
