I served a mission to Brazil 1967-1969 then graduated from the University of Utah in 1973. That same week married Juanita Hebbert (Olympus Class of '70). I retired from the Marine Corps in 1993 and during that period we lived in Virginia twice, Florida twice, Japan twice, Hawaii and California twice. I also served two tours aboard ship in the Pacific and Indian Ocean and acquired over 4,000 flight hours.
We have six children, the last one coming late in our lives but he was a welcome surprise. The first five kids all graduated from BYU (four served missions) and youngest entered BYU the fall of 2015 and is currently serving a mission and will finish in 2019 .
After retirement I worked for an engineering firm in Virginia and then in 2004 I started my own firm and retired again Dec 2015.
Moved back to Holladay (temporarily until home is built in Utah County) June 2018.
I have enjoyed my Church callings over the years in many different wards. I am an avid genealogist/historian. After arriving in Virginia in 1989 I discovered one of my family lines arrived here in 1620 from London, thus our stay here has been filled with family history (Pres. Thomas Jefferson a 4th cousin).
