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 had worked for nearly 36 years for the DoD and ended my civilian career with the Air Force at Hill AFB this past Dec. I had 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 found that people enjoy you more if you know something of their history and culture. I 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 plays in St George but 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 look forward to working at the Church museum when it reopens in Oct 2015.Being single I can't go on a couples 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. I am enjoying retirement though I picked up a park time job that fits my needs. Any questions, send me a message. I like messages, than smiles.
