Paul was born in Epping, on April 21, 1916, to Robert and Margaret (Marks) Hambleton. He was raised in the Epping area, where his parents owned and operated the family farm. He graduated from Epping High School.
Paul worked on farms in North Dakota, Montana and Washington until he entered the service. During World War II he served in the US Army for three-and-a-half years.
Following his discharge, he worked for Union Pacific Railway for a while and then highway construction. He engaged in highway construction until his retirement in 1978. He was a member of the Laborers' International Union of North America.
Paul returned to Williston in 1978 to care for his mother. She passed away in 1980 but Paul continued to make Williston his home, living on his own until entering Bethel Home a year or so ago.
He really enjoyed fishing. It was his favorite passtime until he lost his sight. He also enjoyed collecting rocks and polished them with his polishing system. He took great delight in eating and liked listening to country music.
Paul is survived by nieces and nephews and his long-time friend and neighbor, Verna Kulczyk.
