Paul was born April 18, 1921, in Hinckley, Pine County, Minnesota to John and Sophie Harapet Williams. In 1942, when he registered for the WWII draft, he was still living in Hinckley, MN. It is not known when he moved to Utah, but he entered the mink business here in 1946 and moved his operation to Highland in the late '50s. He and Anne were married on April 20, 1944, and they had at least two children: Gordon L. and Lynn Ann. His mink business was very prosperous and they built a nice home in Highland. Paul died March 17, 1999, and is buried in the Highland City Cemetery. Anne, in her 90's, still lives on the ranch (2018).
