Background:  I was born and raised in Heber City and grew up on a farm there.  After graduation from high school, I went to college at Utah State in Logan.  After one year I left on an LDS mission in England and Wales.  When I returned I started back in school and there I met my wife Joan.  We got married just before my graduation in Mechanical  Engineering with minor in Business.  After graduation we moved to Portland, Oregon where I worked as a test engineer for the Hyster company.  We then moved back to Roosevelt where I worked with Joan's father in business for the next thirty years.  I then went to work for L&L motor in service and parts.  I got in a motorcycle accident in 2006 which limited my endurance and abilities work-wise.  At the time I was also serving on the Roosevelt City council.Previously I had served on the Board of adjustments and Planning and Zoning.  I finished my term on the city council and then decided to run for mayor.  I am now about to enter my eighth year as mayor of Roosevelt.  Joan and I have been blessed with four children and fourteen grandchildren


Favorite part of the job:  I really enjoy meeting with and talking to the people of this community.  This is a great city that helped raise my children and now is helping with my grandchildren.  I enjoy being involved with projects that better our way of life and our progress.
