What did you do right after high school?

moon light my own business on the week ends as a Land Surveyor.
Married? To who? When? How long?
Gini Peatross - The Love of my life and mostly all my salvation.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
Hunting, camping, riding 4 wheelers, Snow mobiling and we got into repelling this year and we have had a real blast, but there are some things you aren't supposed to jump off of, like bridges and dams and such, you get in trouble for those things (some things never change)
I am on the Search and Rescue and the Fire department and most of the time thats fun, But there are times when we have to use the jaws of life and that thing is not really fun !
What's the farthest you've been from home?
Illinois - far enough to know that I really love this place I live in -
My Dad was really glad to see me leave but I liked my Moms cooking so much !! that after that decade of Gini teaching me we moved across the street from my Mom & Dad.
What’s your favorite memory of Duchesne High?
Lots of great memories
Having my own set of Keys to the School,
except when Miss Phillips caught me locking the Debs in the bathroom at half time, Mr. Aycock, Mr. Lewis - Just everything about it, I really loved that time in life.
Least favorite memory?
I was not a very nice person !! I thought it was funny at the time to slap all the younger kids on the back of the head with my class ring ! But now I really feel stupid about that !!!!!!! every time I see someone that I did that to, it makes me want to hide, so I am Sorry to all of you that I was not nice to.
and all those times I got to go in and see Mr. Ercanbrack and Mr. Horrocks and read the school Bible.
Those times I spent getting drunk & having (fun) at other peoples expense. I really wished I would have listened to my parents but I have found that there are 3 things that you can not change.
1. The Truth
2. Who you are
3. your past (you may change tomorrow but never yesterday)
What would we be surprised to know about you?
I actually grew up and turned into a semi nice fellow (sometimes)
That I have learned that God Really does Love All of us even if we do things that are not so smart.
and he gives us what we really want out of life.
that good friends and family are worth more than anything else.
That I count being raised & living here in Duchesne with all of you as one of the greatest blessings of life !!
Anything else we should know?
I still drive that same old 1965 GTO it is fixed up a little better now days & I bought Gini a nice red 2005 GTO that she runs around town in (I think picking up boys)
That Jeff Addley and I are first cousins now that my Uncle Steve and his Mother are Married.
I hang out with Dewy Baum & Joe Dyre and chew gum now and then
