Paul Milwood Halliday, our loving patriarch, father, grandfather, and great grandfather passed away on September 9, 2022 at his home at the age of 94. Paul was born February 7, 1928 in Salt Lake City, Utah to Camille Woodbury Halliday and Herbert Hartland Halliday. In 1945 Paul met Rosie Kink while both were working at the Salt Lake Tribune and were married June 18, 1949. Marriage was later solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple in 1965. Paul led an extraordinary and fulfilling life.
He had many adventures living with his brothers, Herb, Dean, Tom, and sister, Ann at 779 4th Avenue. At age 18 Paul received his pilot license enjoying each moment of flying high in the sky.
Paul graduated from East High School in 1945. He enlisted in the Air National Guard. He was activated during the Korean War, stationed at the air base in Clovis, New Mexico. He received his law degree in 1951 from the University of Utah and practiced law with his father, brother, son, and grandson for over 70 years; blessed to be working and associating with his many friends in the law office through the year 2022.
Paul loved the outdoors, especially Yellowstone, fishing its many streams and rivers with family members. Backpacking in the Uintah mountains with each child and then each grandchild - cherished memories. Family was most important to Paul and building relationships with each child and grandchild, which included riding in his motor home to Lake Powell and other places, Fourth of July family reunions at his condo in Park City, skiing, boating, hiking, hunting, and golfing.
Paul was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. His testimony was strengthened while serving for 14 years in the Salt Lake Temple. He served in various capacities throughout his life which included a service mission in the inner city of Salt Lake, bishopric, scouting, and teaching.

The funeral for Paul was beautiful.
Please know of my complete heartfelt sympathy to you and your family.
You and your family have always been held in high esteem by me and Lila ever since we were neighbors almost fifty years ago.
I just wanted you to know that my faith and prayers are with you and your family at this extremely difficult time.
May you find solace in the Hymn number 123,: " May My Soul Commune with Thee" as I did.
With sincere Love and concern, Reed Nelson
It was a wonderful pleasure to meet, work with and enjoy Paul in our many years of service at the temple. Paul was always happy and anxious to serve. He exuded a fervent testimony and love for all he associated with - a true example of the Savior. Til we meet again …
During my growing up years my mother Lorraine Kelly was always talking about Paul and Rosie. She has been gone since 2007 but would want me to express condolences on the passing of Paul. Maybe they will have a reunion.
I am so sorry to hear of Paul’s passing. I loved growing up on Diana Way with so many great neighbors. Paul was such a happy, kind man. We were sad when you moved up the hill and eventually your home took on a completely different look and feel. We missed you. I send my love and prayers at this difficult time. Paul will be remembered as a wonderful father, friend and neighbor. Take care.
It is my pleasure to have joined a most congenial crew at Halliday, Watkins and Mann late in my employable years. As the third Paul I was known as Bear. Senior became a good friend and the source of enthusiastic medical advice. I cherish that friendship and many happy times. I will always be grateful to be part of the Halliday family.
I worked for and with Paul for 8 years. He was the most positive- happy man I have ever been around. He was always smiling and so happy to work with his son, daughter and grandsons and grand daughter. Family was everything to Paul! He loved the Lord as well.
My sincere condolences to Paul's entire family. Though we were competitors for the same legal work for many years, I enjoyed our many associations and considered him to be a good friend. He was always proper and always friendly - a true gentleman.
