EVANSTON-Blaine Paul Sanders, 58 years, passed away surrounded by his friends and family Wednesday, October 30, 2019 at the Intermountain Medical Center in Murray, Utah.

Paul was born on November 1, 1960 in Salt Lake City Utah; son of Blaine and Leah Sanders. He graduated with a Bachelor’s degree from Weber State University in 1984.  He then returned to Evanston and gained experience in the restaurant industry working with his family, first at The Three Knights, and then at West Gate.  With this experience, Paul was offered and accepted an opportunity to join the Uinta County Sheriff’s Office as a cook in November 1991.  He clearly enjoyed his profession and climbed the ranks to Sergeant throughout his 27 years with the department.  Outside of work, Paul was an avid outdoorsman and sports fan.  He enjoyed camping and spending time at “The Lot”, hunting and fishing with his Dad, golfing, walking at the state park with his black lab Bear, reading, and watching the Denver Broncos.
