Paul Draper Schwartz

August 11, 1947 — January 27, 2018

Our Dad, Paul Draper Schwartz, passed away peacefully at home, the morning of Saturday, January 27, 2018 at the age of 70. Dad was born on August 11, 1947 to Paul Junior Schwartz and Alice Louise Draper in Spanish Fork, Utah. He spent his youth growing up in Mapleton, Utah, later moving to Bountiful, Utah and graduating from Bountiful High School in 1965. After graduation, he went to work for E-Systems, later know as Moog Inc., as a stock room clerk. He then enlisted in the United States Army on August 31, 1966, being assigned to the 25th Infantry Division, Tropic Lightning in Vietnam. After 3 years of service and being honorably discharged on August 29, 1969, he returned to the States and to E-Systems, where he retired in 2012 after 43 years of dedicated service, attaining the position of Project Planner. Dad met our mother, Katherine Jean Bushman in 1969 after his military service and married her in 1971. They spent almost 34 wonderful years together before her passing in April 2005. Dad is survived by his children, Laura Anne Conford (Glade) Tanner, Monica Jean Sime, Casey Paul Schwartz; grandchildren, Stefan Eric Tanner, Elizabeth Katherine (Tevis) Carpenter, Taylor Robert Sime; siblings Ann (Russell) Sheriff, Jeffrey (Analee) Schwartz; nieces and nephews; cousins; in-laws James Reid Bushman, Karen Ann "Annie" Bushman; and other surviving family. He was preceded in death by our mom, Kathy; his parents, Paul Junior Schwartz and Alice Louise Schwartz; a baby sister Renee Schwartz; along with his in-laws Reid Bushman, Lois Bushman, Carol Bushman and Connie Bushman. Dad was an intelligent, thoughtful, kind and generous person who wanted people to be their best. He was a no nonsense guy who expected everyone to live their life with the same dedication and self accountability as he did. Thank you for caring for us Dad in the way that you did. We love you and will miss you greatly. Rest in peace. Our family would like to thank his doctors and their staff at Granger Medical Clinic, the nurses and staff at Heartwood Home Health & Hospice for being there through to the end and especially his nurses Jessica and Sheri. A viewing is scheduled for Friday, February 2nd, at 1:00 p.m. for family and close friends at McDougal Funeral Home, 4330 S. Redwood Road. It was Dad's wish to be cremated. Always remember how important your family is, whether they are your blood or your friends and be dedicated to loving and caring for each other throughout our lives.
