    Paul Stodt married Dorothy Virginia (Brumm) Herman in Burlington Iowa in April 1950. Dorothy's first husband, Carl Harold "Harry" Herman, had been killed in a firefighting accident in October 1947 while working for the Burlington fire department. Paul, Dorothy, and her two children from the first marriage, Susan and Bob Herman, lived on Swan Street in West Burlington, Iowa. After the children were grown, they later would move to a smaller home in West Burlington on Broadway.

    Paul's parents were Frank John and Elsie Magdalena (Schultke) Stodt. His Stodt family grandparents, John and Mary A. (Nuz) Stodt, were natives of Austria-Hungary, who immigrated to the United States late in the 19th century.
