After a bachelors and masters at BYU, I worked in local government for ten years. I was City Manager in South Jordan in 1998 when I left and formed a land development company. We did that for 12 years and built up a nice real estate portfolio until the recession kicked our butt pretty hard. I liquidated most of my holdings, opened up a antique store, got bored and went back to being a City Manager. I have been in Farmington since 2010 and really love my job. I keep thinking of retirement but am frankly scared of the boredom.

We travel a lot. My wife and I have been on over 20+ cruises. Besides the cruises we have visited Argentina, China, Italy, Tunisia, Taiwan, Ukraine and are going to Germany and Switzerland this Christmas. I really got into scuba diving a few years back and try to dive a few times a year.

My wife who is the best thing in my life
Four grandchildren are the joy of my life but I wish I saw them more often.
I have still have three children (young adults) who are not married so I am hopeful we will get some more grandkids.

I am so thankful for all the blessings I have received and very grateful for my testimony of Christ's role in those blessings.

We really enjoy snow skiing and are within an hour of 10 resorts so we go a lot. We built a family cabin near Park City a few years ago and spend lots of time there riding ATV's, fishing or just doing nothing.

Words of wisdom?

Stop and smell the roses. Life is busy and fast and throws curve balls. Pay attention to those close to you as the rest is just things and stuff. Laugh at yourself and remember you are not as good looking as you think you are.

Remember Christ made this all possible and we owe him a great debt. We repay that debt by how we live and hopefully serve others.

School Story:

I remember starting school with all the protests and thinking boy is High School different.

Everyone !!! My three oldest are centered in the back, flanked by spouses. The very center daughter is a swinging' single at 21 years old. The four youngest are the grandchildren. The teen boys and my youngest daughter, age 10, (next to my wife) are still at home and brightening my life daily!!!!
