He grew up in Bountiful, UT and graduated from Bountiful High School, The University of Utah, and earned an MBA from Southern Illinois University.
On September 6, 1967 he married his sweetheart Kristene Dunford in the Salt Lake City Temple.

Dad grew up in Bountiful surrounded by loved ones who always encouraged him to excel. As a child he found a love for the Boy Scouting Program achieving the rank of Eagle Scout at the age of 13. He loved sports and worked hard to be the best. His first love was baseball. He was on the first Little League team in Bountiful and was able to help his team make it to the Regional Championship winning the State of Utah championship. Dad continued to excel in sports into High School lettering in Football, Basketball, track, and Baseball, achieving all-state in 1964. Dad was awarded a full ride baseball scholarship to the University of Utah.

Ever since he was a young boy, Dad wanted to fly. Upon graduation he joined the Air Force and completed flight training. Dad served in the Air Force from 1967 to 1975 and also from 1979 retiring in 1995 as a Lieutenant Colonel. During his career in the Air Force, Dad was an Instructor pilot and Stan/Eval for many types of airplanes including the T-38, T-37, T-33, F-106, KC-135 and the EC-135. His last assignment in Omaha, NE, was in the Looking Glass Airborne Command Post, a 24 hr. a day, 365 a year Cold War airborne command center.

In 1995, he moved his family back to Utah and built a home in Cedar City. His grandchildren will always remember him as the "Best Waffle Maker", continuing to ask for him to make his famous waffles whenever they visited.

From the time Dad was a little child, he always had animals nearby. Dad loved Labrador Retrievers and Siamese cats. If you had an hour, he would tell you of the funny adventures of his animals. It broke his heart when they passed.
