I had a paper route for 10 years and spent a lot of time being a handy man around the Lark Merc. Like a lot of the others, I started working at Kennecott at 16 and I enjoyed working weekends and summers there.
Baseball was my love…..from summer ball park to high school and American Legion all with Baily Sanisteven. I played baseball at BYU, with the Bingham Amateur League and semi-pro teams. When I was in the Navy I played in the Newport, Rode island team.
In June od 1951, I married Gwen Sandstrom from Lark. In August we went into the Navy for two years. Boot Camp was in San Diego and then we were sent to Hospital Corp School in Baltimore, MD. When I graduated from there we were transferred to New Port, RI. Our first son, Scott was born in Newport. We had some good experiences, being on our own so far from home.
