Tyson Kemp Ramsay was born January 11, 1960 in Monticello, Utah. Tyson was the last baby born in the old hospital by the golf course. Two days later all the patients in the hospital were packed up and moved to the new San Juan County hospital a block from our house.
When Tyson was in the sixth grade he wrote: The Story of My Life
Staring - My dad, mom, Dan, Kevin, Larry, Robin, Aleta, Sheila, Delta, Jason, Erwin, Clifton, Regan, Special star - Tyson
My First Five Years: I was born in Monticello, Utah January 11, 1960 in the old hospital and was moved to the new one. I was born at 7:40 a.m. and it took 7 hours and 40 minutes for me to be delivered. I weighed 7 pounds 3 1/2 ounces and was 20 inches long. After my first birthday I started talking and walking, but I had a hard time walking. When my grandmother was holding me and I didn't want her to, I said my first word which was, "let go!" On my second and third birthday I got trucks and cars. When I was four I got what I always wanted and that was a cowboy set. When I was five I started kindergarten.
School Days: When I was five years old I started kindergarten. I was the smallest one in my class. My teacher was Mrs. Buckmiller. She was a nice teacher too. What I like to do most of all was to play with trucks and cars, and another thing I liked to do was to drink milk and eat graham crackers on the red rug while our teacher would read us a story.
First Grade: In First Grade my teacher was Mrs. Redd, but she wasn't as nice as Mrs. Buckmiller because she would always throw my best friend Gary Torres and me out in the hall. And there is another coincidence because I am still the smallest one in my class.
Second Grade: My second grade teacher was Mrs. Hyde, and she was the nicest teacher I have ever had because she would always give me candy bars. Once she gave me a birthday party in class and she gave me some pencils and a new ball that said, "Happy birthday Tyson" on it. In second grade I was the smallest and fastest one in my class.
Third Grade: My third grade teacher was Mrs. Hyde and she was mean. Once the janitor came in the room and I was just joking with him and Mrs. Hyde came in and thought I was sassing him so she took me up to the principal's office and I got a spanking. In third grade my best friend was Gary Torres.
Fourth Grade: My fourth grade teacher was Mrs. Adams and she was kind of nice. In my other teacher's room (Mrs. Lyman's) I had fun at the end of the year at the poetry festival. The poem I had was "The Crocodile," by Lewis Carrol. My best friend in the fourth grade was Jay Booth.
Fifth Grade: My fifth grade teacher was Mrs. Parry and sometimes she was nice and sometimes she was mean. When I was in music I tipped over my chair and Mrs. Bailey took me up to the office and I got a spanking. I didn't have much fun in fifth grade except with my best friend Steven Herrera.
Sixth Grade: My sixth grade teacher was Mr. Livingston and he was pretty nice all but once when I got sent out in the hall and I went to sit down and then I felt a slap on my head and it was Mr. Livingston. He thought I sassed him, but I didn't. My best friend in sixth grade was Dale Hunt.

John Henry Tyson The Great Future Years: First I would like to graduate from the sixth grade, and then in seventh grade I hope to have a good year because it will be my first year in high school. When I am about 14 years old I want to get a 22 rifle. And when I am about 15 I want to get a minibike or a motorcycle. When I am about 17 or 18 I want to get a car. I will want to graduate from high school and then go to college at BYU. then I will go on my mission. When I get back from my mission (that's when I am about 21 years old) I want to get married and have a big family (about 10 or 12 kids). I either want to be an airplane pilot, a policeman, or a famous sport player, but most of all I want to be a lawyer. I want to live to about 70 or 80 years old.

The Worst Time of My Life: The worst time of my life was when I got my tonsils out. Before I got them out my mother said if I would be good she would give me my allowance doubled, and then they gave me a sleeping pill, but that didn't work because I kept talking about my allowance. so they gave me a sleeping shot but that didn't work either. Finally they gassed me to sleep. then they took me to the operating room and took my tonsils out and when I woke up my throat was so sore, and the only thing I could eat about was ice cream.
