He attended Circleville Elementary School and graduated from Piute High School. He enjoyed sports and played basketball on the high school team. Dad worked on farms and ranches in Circleville, Roosevelt and Milford while completing high school. After graduation, he discovered his aptitude and interest in mechanics and started working in that field. He married Louise Frederick on Nov. 3, 1949, and they were later sealed in the Salt Lake Temple on Dec. 1, 1950. They shared 63 years of marriage together. They loved to dance. Some of their favorite times were in open-aired dance halls in Piute County. Dad was a member of the LDS church in which he held various callings.
