In High School I planned to follow in my fatherís footsteps and get a factory job.I really didn't care for academics but, due to my success in playing football, I attended the College of San Mateo for 1 1/2 years and played football well enough to earn a scholarship at Utah State University. It was there that I realized I could graduate from College and enter the teaching profession.


I have been married three times.Had a son and daughter from the first marriage but divorced after 12 years. I was then married for 17 years when she died of Cancer.The third marriage ended after seven years.Iím now single and my interests include ballroom dancing, bridge, golf, travel and gardening. I have one granddaughter.
