Born on November 20, 1944 in Detroit, he was the son of Paul and Mary (Ciesla) Mattieson. He married Linda Denise White in Dearborn on October 26, 1963.
A longtime resident of Dearborn, Paul worked in auto sales before opening Universal Detroit Tool & Die. He continued to work seven days a week in his business until recently due to his failing health. In 2021, Paul and Linda moved to Gaylord to their Otsego Lake home, originally owned by her parents.
