Paul was born March 5, 1932, in Siam, Iowa, the second of three sons. He himself had three children by his first marriage, Bobby, Paula and Kenny.

On March 2, 1978, he married Delphia Scott. Paul retired in 1994 from the maintenance department at the Clarinda Mental Health Institute. After his retirement, Paul and Delphia moved to Branson, Missouri, and enjoyed many hours of boating, fishing and traveling. In September 2019, they moved to Surprise, Arizona, to be near family.

Those who are left to cherish the memories of this wonderful husband, father, step-father, grandfather and great-grandfather are his wife of 41 years, Delphia, his two children, Kenny Renfro and Paula Barnhouse, his brother, Darrel Renfro, his step-children, Buff (Sandy) Scott, Bruce (Janet) Scott, Jean (Steve) Conrad, and Joan (Steve) Wallace, along with many cousins, nieces, nephews, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
