The marriage was sealed in the Salt Lake City Temple on August 19, 1966. He grew up in Salt Lake City, graduating from South High School in 1947. He attended U of U studying Electronics. He worked at Bennet Ford as a Radio Electronics Technician. While working there he met his wife, Muriel. He started work at Petty Ford as a Department Head after they were married. They made their first home in Bountiful, UT. They lived there for 18 years raising their family, then spent two years in Salt Lake City before buying and running a dairy farm in Fairview. When they sold the dairy, he built homes and later bought a Peterbilt Semitruck and drove it for several years.
