Kathy and Scott

I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, born and raised. I spent many Saturdays (all day) fishing under “the Golden Gate Bridge.”  In those days, a young boy could go anywhere in the city for a 15 cent transfer bus/trolley ticket; …just hop on and hop off. On “no school” days, my mother would often give me a brown bag with lunch, and just send me off for the day. For me, the city was a magical and safe place to be.

 

I graduated from high school in 1964; and at age 19 years, I was called to serve a two year proselyting mission for the Mormon Church. Full-time missionary work changed the direction of my life.  I learned who I was, and I gained a firm testimony of the Lord Jesus Christ.  In addition, I gained valuable life skills and good habits, such as: goal setting, self-discipline, punctuality, personal cleanliness, self-reliance, kindness to others, and so much more.


Very shortly after the mission, I joined the United States Air Force and ultimately made it a career. I served as a foreign affairs officer and lived/traveled in many countries. For me, military service became my life.  It

was a challenging career full of growth, learning and excitement. Except for a lonely year in Southeast Asia,  I fully enjoyed serving.  I was also privileged to have been married to two wonderful and amazing women, both of whom supported me in my military service and all our many travels.  My first wife was my dear Jenny Marie.  We spent 15 wonderful years growing together, raising a family, and learning.  Sadly, she passed away at an early age. My second wife is my dear Kathy.  She adopted me six years after Jenny’s death.  All combined, we’ve raised ten (10) beautiful children. They have all grown now and have children of their own. We currently have 28 wonderful grandchildren who call us “Papa and Nana.”


After 24 years on active military duty, I retired from the Air Force.  Kathy and I are now living a dream on a small horse ranch in central Utah. We have horses, dogs and cats. I also went back to school to learn computer technology skills, and I currently own a small computer support business in a nearby college town. I love waking up in the morning and beginning each day.
