He become an X-Ray Technician and worked for the Utah State Health Department for 30 years in the Communicable Diseases Department. He had many friends and was respected and admired by all.

Dad, every child deserves a father like you. You were the best! Our hearts are broken but we look forward to our reunion with you and Momma in our Lord's mansion. We love you and will miss you more than any words can say. Bye, Daddy.
