I am an easy going happy man and enjoy my four children and ten grandchildren. I have two sons out of state with their families and my daughter and youngest son live near with their families. The numbers have gotten smaller but we attempt to have a family meal every 2nd Sunday at Grandpa's.
I was happily married for 35 years but she left this life a little too early at 54. I've learned a lot about the atonement of Jesus Christ and what families can endure and carry on.
I have worked for nearly 36 years for the DoD and ending my civilian career soon with the Air Force at Hill AFB. I have enjoyed being with the F-16 Division with Foreign Military Air Forces. I have been blessed years ago to have programs that took me on both sides of the ponds to help various air forces with contracting needs. I've now retired as of 12/12/14 and plan to be with family more and enjoy things of interest to me plus helping the Kingdom of God in some way.
I frequently attend museums, art exhibits, and musical events. I enjoy attending live plays and have had season tickets to Hale Center Theater for over a decade. I especially love the Shakespearean Festival / B&B's and have missed going for the last couple of years. I love to travel and consider after 2 cruises that it's the best way to go. I have a great love for our country and believe that it needs a major course correction. I am an avid photographer and am known to always have my Nikon near me to catalog visually my family's history. I love to stay busy but would rather be busy with a companion. I also have missed the past few years, the dinner & dance held at Utah State for the Big Band sounds.
The gospel of Jesus Christ and His Atonement are a major player in my life and family. I currently teach gospel doctrine and substitute when the high priest wish me to teach. I have submitted my name into the Church museum when it reopens in Oct 2015 at the suggestion of a friend. Being single I can't go on a couple mission but I have a strong desire to go on missions when hopefully married, till my body says stay home and do things around the area. I enjoy temple work and attempt to go each week. I have a sister that I hired help me with names and it's wonderful to have a pile of family cards to take to the temple. My church ancestors goes back to the first group of saints baptized in England by Heber C Kimball. I can't let them down and have a testimony of the Church. Any questions, send me a message. I like messages, than smiles.
