Paul met his wife, Karen, while visiting Cleveland. He was smitten with her and they soon wed at the very young age of 18. Shortly thereafter, Paul entered military service. Paul served his country honorably for over 27 years. He and his wife moved his family to various hamlets in the United States, as well as out of the country. Paul and Karen, always looked at their moves as a new adventure and something to learn. His two daughters will miss the man who showed them the world and invited them to constantly be looking for the next horizon and hill to climb. After his retirement from the U.S Air Force, Paul began working for the city of Henderson in the Parks and Recreation Department. Upon his retirement in 2010, from the city of Henderson, he moved to North Carolina to be closer to his precious granddaughter. The light of Paul's life was his granddaughter, Savannah. Every Friday, while in Nevada, he would take his granddaughter to lunch. He called it lunching with "PawPaw" and no one was going to deny him his time with precious little girl. While living in North Carolina, he made sure to attend every concert, softball game and award ceremony she had. Paul Bailey lived a life of integrity, honor and with a sarcastic wit that could reduce most generals and congressmen to quivering masses of Jell-O. Paul loved his wife, his girls and his dogs. He was loved deeply and he will be missed greatly by his family and friends. A celebration of life is pending at the home in Clayton and in West Virginia.

He was born Dec. 29, 1925, to Benjamin Cameron Jr. and Camilla Effie Cannon, in St. George, Utah, the third youngest of 16 children and the last of his siblings to pass. Prior to graduating from high school, Elwyn enlisted and briefly served in the U.S. Navy. After receiving an honorable discharge due to medical reasons in October 1944, Elwyn returned to Utah, where he married Laurel Jackson of Toquerville, Utah, Nov. 25, 1944, in the St. George Temple. After their marriage, Elwyn attended Dixie Junior College at St. George, where he completed his pre-dental education and was elected student body president. After finishing school, Elwyn and Laurel moved to Henderson, where Elwyn worked in various enterprises while earning enough money to attend dental school. Elwyn was admitted to dental school at the University of Oregon, School of Dental Medicine, in 1953. After graduating in 1957, the family returned to Nevada.

She was born May 9, 1931, in North Platte, Neb., and was a resident of Las Vegas for over 60 years.

Following a stroke in 2013, she was no longer able to do many of the things she loved, but Roberta's great love of life, and her family and friends, never diminished.

She is survived by her brother, Jerry Clark; her son, Brad Azbill; her daughter, Kathleen Delaney; and many four-legged grandchildren. Services will be private.
