Paul Kay Julander was born on August 11, 1945 in Monroe Utah to Paul Garn and Golda Johnson Julander. He passed away on August 15, 2022 in Panguitch Utah.
He grew up and attended school in Monroe Utah until 1960 when his family moved to Panguitch. After attending Panguitch High for 2 years he went back to Monroe for his senior year. He took automotive classes at Sevier Valley Tech while finishing high school at South Sevier High. He graduated in 1963, after which he went to CSU (SUU). He earned his Associates Degree in Automotive Service Technology and in 1969 he graduated with his Bachelors Degree in Industrial Technology.
Paul went to work for his dad at the sawmill in Panguitch on his 16th birthday. He worked there part time until the summer of 1966, when he started working as a mechanic at Farnsworth Chevrolet. He worked there during the summers while he attended college and went to work there full time after he graduated. He worked there for Farnsworth’s until the business changed hands, then he continued there while it was Griffith’s Chevrolet. In 1981, he started Paul’s Auto Repair in that same location on North Main in Panguitch. He worked there, with his family, until the minute that he died.
He married Laura Goulding, his eternal sweetheart, on June 20, 1970 in Panguitch Utah. They had three children and made their home in Panguitch. They have loved living in their little piece of heaven where Paul spent a lot of time tinkering in their house and yard over the years. They were sealed in the St. George Temple on August 1, 1992.
Paul was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Throughout the years he served willingly in a number of callings, including Cub Master and secretary of the Young Men’s Quorum.

He touched many hearts and was appreciated for his service in the church as well as in the small community of Panguitch.
