I have written my life history during April and May of 1976 after receiving the assignment at quarterly stake conference from my stake president, Ernest L. Olsen, to do so. I no doubt have forgotten many items, but I researched this history over the last six months. I hope each of my sons will keep a personal history that will be much better than mine and teach their children to start theirs. The greatest joy and satisfaction in this life comes from keeping the Lord’s commandments. Every person must learn the principle of obedience if he expects to be with the Lord. I encourage each of my posterity to learn to be obedient to the Lord and this means His servants. Teach your children the principle of obedience before they learn to talk. Start early. Be consistent in your teaching. Don’t tell your children they can’t do something and then let them do it. When you promise them something, see that you do it. I can promise each of you much joy and happiness in your children if you will be diligent in teaching this principle in love and compassion. Teach them to be obedient to you as their parents in love and they will love, honor and respect you all your life. Then your counsel in their teenage and older life will not be disregarded. Study the life of Abraham and ask the Lord every day to help you teach your children His commandments and this most important principle, obedience. Remember Christ learned this principle so completely that He did what His Father wanted Him to do. He wants us to follow Him. We must learn this principle and love the Lord with all our hearts. No one can do this until they learn obedience and discipline themselves in their everyday life. May the Lord bless each of you as we now leave for our mission in Oakland, California. We pray for each of you every day and ask the Lord to bless you and help you teach your children to keep His commandments. We will miss each of you and your children very much because we love you and want you to do what is right. God bless all of you.

I was born of goodly parents. My father was a good man possessing many Christ-like attributes, thus a very righteous man. As a child he had a very hard life, different from the others in his family, in that he had polio in his early youth, and later experienced seizures. These two conditions drastically changed life for him. His seizures were related to eating sugar, so he conformed his eating to healthy foods in his early days. The polio was from the waist down. It caused one leg to twist almost 180 degrees. He had to be carried to elementary school. Doctors wanted to amputate one leg. After much physical therapy by his mother and priesthood blessings (one counseled to never let this boy come under the knife of a surgeon), he was able to walk by junior high school. His legs were both straight and normal by this time. He grew up in Salt Lake City in a home in the Avenues. He studied to become a concert pianist, went on a mission, returned and sang with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, then gave all those things up as a young married to focus on his family and serving in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He worked as an accountant most of his career for the Church and BYU. We moved from South Salt Lake off 6400 South, 15th east, to Provo, Utah when I was in the middle of the 8th grade. My father retired in his early sixties, went on a senior mission with my mom to Oakland, CA, serving at the visitor’s center. He came back and volunteered to work for the Missionary Training Center in Provo, UT, for no salary. This succeeded for a year of two but eventually he was told he will have to receive a salary or he couldn't continue. He retired again in his seventies. He sang in a men's choral group, the Mendelson Choir. As he got older, his world closed in on him because of the effect of the polio. He lost muscle tissue in his buttocks and one leg. Walking became difficult. The day came he could no longer work outside in his yard. He gradually couldn't go down the basement. He was ready and wanted to die in his seventies, but the Lord allowed him to live to almost 95, twenty years longer than he desired. He remained mostly pain free, did not have a doctor, ate healthy all his life, and in his nineties ate but very little. He lived at home independent, frugally, and passed away in his sleep.
