Paul Blaine Stevens traded in his leathered, calloused hands and worn-out body to build his dream cabin in the sky on March 21, 2022.
His wife, daughter, and dog were there to see him off on his next journey. He was welcomed with open arms by those who went before him: his mother, Edna Lucile Stevens; his preceded his father, Blaine Stevens; his sister, Debbie Kennah; his brother, Glen Stevens; his second oldest daughter, Connie Christensen; his son, Allen Paul “Moe” Stevens; and his great-grandson, Jaiden Kirk Christensen.
During his 79 years of life, Paul spent time being a turkey farmer, worked at the Moroni Processing Plant, worked as a Chief Turd Herder at the Moroni Treatment Plant, and worked as a police officer (where he spent time keeping track of his own daughters) for Moroni City. He was also a volunteer for the Sanpitch Search and Rescue crew, where he aided and helped many people.
He was the proud founder and owner of Sanpitch Construction & Log Homes, where he built many beautiful cabins and homes throughout Sanpete Valley; he gained numerous, everlasting friendships throughout the years. For the last 30 years, Paul enjoyed his 1960 class reunions at his cabin, where he and his wife stayed connected with all their classmates.
Paul was a family man and raised four lovely (and wild) children. His children went on to give Paul many grandkids and many great grandkids that he loved and adored. Paul had always told the grandchildren that they were born with the wrong belly buttons.
There are many things that Paul loved and was known for but having a good story and a laugh were at the top of his list. Paul was a storyteller with a sense of humor. Paul had a passion and love for woodworking, where he spent a lot of his spare time in his shop with his friends, enjoying stories and adult beverages.
Paul loved to fish—Velveeta cheese and dead worms were his bait of choice. He loved hunting, and his prize moose was found in Alaska. Paul was known in the family as MacGyver and could figure out a solution to every problem—he’d always find a use for Lola’s garage sale finds, which also drove him crazy. Paul was a joker and was known for having a “birdie” in his pocket.
There will not be a formal funeral, but in the spirit of his life, we will be having a celebration of life at his personal built cabin, Fairview Lakes, on July 30, 2022. We encourage all friends and family to come and share their favorite memories of Paul. Online condolences at rasmussenmortuary.com.
