Paul was born as the second child and first son of Mr. and Mrs. Creeton. His sister is a few years older and left high school before he could attend SJBS. His sister moved to LA and he went to high school. He met a big group of friends there and because of the fact that Waterfall Creek is a small town they had no one else but each other. He fell in love with Diana and they started dating when they were in sophomore year.
When she left to go study medicine he stayed behind and worked in his dads garage to make sure they could buy a home when she returned. When Diana came back to Waterfall Creek when she graduated Paul had found a job as a financial advisor for a big company. They married and after a miscarriage they got a son named Mike.
Paul was proud to be a father and tried to do as much together with his son as possible. When he lost his job things with Diana went downhill. He could not take care of his family anymore and she left him. They still remained friends, but they could not live together anymore. Mike stayed with him as he still had to graduate from SJBS.
When Diana got very ill he decided to go to Arizona and support her and his son. He was there when she died and decided to stay in Arizona with his son, to spend some time together.
