We took Jordan to the Salt Lake City Temple on Saturday, July 25, 2009. My mother and father came as well as our Bishop, Bruce Fivas and his wife Cheri. We had a really nice time, although it was a long day. After we finished at the temple we all went to Olive Garden for dinner. I need to thank my dad for treating everyone to dinner and for the very good pictures of us all at the temple. It is hard for me to believe that Jordan will be leaving in less than a month now. I still don't feel old enough to have children leaving on missions.
I am the father of 4 great children and two incredible daughters-in-law. I have been married to the same amazingwoman for over 26 years. I enjoy life especially when I am outdoors. I am employed as the Environmental Manager for a mining company.
I think that the Disney character that I'm most like would have to be
Aladdin. I'm not sure if this is because it was my favorite Disney movie as
a child ...

My sister Kimberly is 10 years my junior. She is among the most adventuresome and accomplished of my siblings. She is married to Sione Fifita and they have one son Viliami who just turned two. She has been a professor of English in Hawaii and currently works for a scrapbooking supply company (Stampin Up). She has actually changed jobs more often than I have! She is writing a novel (has been for years) which I am eagerly anticipating. She has always been a great sister and in some sense is the glue that keeps all six of us bonded together. It has been nice to have her family back on the mainland and to live closer to them.
