Paul Robert Bingham passed away on March 12, 2016. He lived with his wife and family in West Valley City, Utah. He was dearly loved and will be sorely missed by all who knew him. He was born May 6, 1970 in American Fork, at the American Fork Hospital.\n\nAs a child he tended to be quiet and reserved but he had many natural abilities that became apparent at a young age. By age two he loved tying knots, anywhere and everywhere. As he got older, his curiosity for anything mechanical grew. He would take apart a clock without knowing how to put it back together (But he figured it out!) He was very adventurous with his brothers. At one point he bought an old van with a plan to roll it down a hill so he could record everyone while they were inside. What an adventure!! He loved anything outdoors: hiking, camping, skiing and a love for animals. He enjoyed his FFA experiences and participated all through the years in Boy Scouts eventually earning his Eagle Scout Award. His sisters always felt that he was a loving brother and protector. His siblings always knew they could depend on him if they ever needed anything.\n\nPaul graduated from Pleasant Grove High and began a fun and adventurous life. He studied at Utah State University for a short time. Following his time in college he babysat llamas for a winter, worked at a mink farm, and spent 2 seasons working at ski resorts. Paul repaired snow mobiles, ran tours and performed rescues! He also worked in Idaho and Montana doing guided hunts as an outfitter. He ran river tours in Moab and was always working as an Emergency Medical Technician with ambulance crews. If there was an adventure Paul was there to find it.\n\nPaul met Tammy while working as part of a security team for Kennecott. Over time he settled into a career at Comcast where he worked until his passing. At Comcast he developed life-time friendships and was respected for his dedication to his job. People depended on Paul for his leadership and expertise many of those had been in the industry many more years than he had. He was very much loved and is missed by his coworkers.\n\nOn April 23, 2005 Paul married the love of his life, Tammy Tuft Campos, after years of courtship combining two fiercely independent lives into one holy union.\n\nWhen Paul met Tammy he was struck knowing she would become the love of his life. Their home was made up of: Daughter, Jamie Christensen (Dennis) , children: Rykilee (17), Havyn (14), Braxton Paul (8); Son, Dustin Tuft (Holly), children: Lexi (13), Kiersten (10), Brooke (8), Hailey (5), and Payton (3).\n\nTogether they were able to combine forces to tackle the challenges of parenting and grand-parenting. Paul taught Havyn to growl before she could talk. Braxton Paul was often so good playing hide and seek he could not be found. To ensure his grandson's safety Paul and Braxton made a pact that whenever Paul made an elk call Braxton would respond in kind. He loved his family so much taking them on as though they were his own. He cared so deeply for each child in their own unique way. Setting up Grandma and Grandpa's camping lodge by decking out the house with tents, indoor smores, and glow in the dark stars across the ceiling was the norm for Grandpa Paul.\n\nPaul was a protector, a father, a husband, a grandpa and a friend to all. He would sit quietly and observe keeping a keen hawk eye watch on any potential trouble to ensure the peace. Paul was the greatest part of our lives and he will be missed more than words will ever be able to express.\n\nHe is survived by his wife Tammy Tuft Campos Bingham, Daughter Jamie Christensen (Dennis) and children: Rykilee (17), Havyn (14), Braxton Paul (8); Son Dustin Tuft (Holly) and children: Lexi (13), Kiersten (10), Brooke (8), Hailey (5), and Payton (3), His Parent's Bob and Ronnie Bingham, Brother James Bingham (Jewel), Brother Gary Bingham, Brother John Bingham, Sister Jennifer Blackmore (Jim), Sister Laura Montague (Mike).
