Paul Christian Schiffman, 79, passed away Thursday, October 31, 2019 in the Soda Springs, Idaho area doing what he loved most in life, hunting and being part of nature.

Paul was born June 10, 1940 to Frank and Verva Schiffman in Logan, Utah. Paul enlisted in the Navy where he served 4 years in Hawaii. He married Margaret Manipon and had two children.
