Grandpa as an MTC President

Contributor: DdraigGoch Created: 8 months ago Updated: 8 months ago

Being 20 years this week since Grandpa passed away has brought him close to mind. As a missionary in Bolivia I had a couple opportunities to meet people who knew Grandpa when they were missionaries and he was their MTC President. One counselor to the bishop in a city I served told me how one night their had been a disturbance in the missionary dorms. All the missionaries felt scared by the bad feelings they felt and the books and other items they saw flying off the shelves. Two missionaries in particular saw more and the counselor who recounted the experience told me, "Those missionaries went in scared and shaking and came out calm as a sleeping baby. I don't know what your Grandpa said or did when they were in his office, but they came out calm." Another sister that I did not meet, but who was met by my trainer told of how she had been disowned by her family when she went on a mission. Grandpa told her I will by your father while you are on a mission and he wrote her faithfully.

Grandpa in the Provo MTC

Contributor: DdraigGoch Created: 8 months ago Updated: 8 months ago

One experience that shows Grandpa's humor was when he was I believe a branch president in the Provo MTC. Grandpa was walking outside with a couple missionaries to his new Buick. As he was talking to the missionaries he said, I bet if we have enough faith we can get this trunk to open on his own." And sure enough with the faith of these missionaries and the new clicker that had the function of opening a trunk, the trunk did indeed open!

Grandpa and WWII

Contributor: DdraigGoch Created: 8 months ago Updated: 8 months ago

Visiting Uncle Garth he recounted this part of Grandpa's life recently. Despite Grandpa's accident in the silo where he lost part of his hands, Uncle Garth said that Grandpa was the best shot of the family. When it came time to enlist Grandpa went to sign up, however he was denied the opportunity to serve because of his hands. Uncle Garth recounted how that had been hard on Grandpa being denied the opportunity to serve, but reiterated that he had been the best shot of all the boys!

Going to Zion

Contributor: DdraigGoch Created: 8 months ago Updated: 8 months ago

When my parents were moving to Missouri Grandpa drove out a truck and trailer of furniture and other items. While filling up at the gas station a busy body in the stake for which Grandpa was currently serving as stake president stopped and asked where he was going. Grandpa couldn't resist saying to the effect, "It's time to go to Zion." Oh was Grandma mad by the time he returned home and the rumor mill had a good time to run while he was gone!

World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.
