  Personal motto: It is easy enough to be pleasant when life flows along like a song, but the man worthwhile is the one who will smile when everything goes dead wrong.

  Family: Wife, Kathleen (substitute teacher), son, Steven (a Marine), daughter, Megan (PHS graduate 2009), son, John (freshman at PHS)

  Pet peeve: Being late and dishonesty.

  Favorite leisure activity: Outdoors — fishing, hunting, camping

  Person in history you’d most like to meet: I would like to meet General George S. Patton because he was a great leader and motivated his troops to overcome tremendous obstacles.

  Why Payson? It reminds me of my home state of Montana — but a lot warmer.

  Favorite teacher as a kid? My 10th-grade math teacher was my favorite because he really cared about the students.

  Favorite subject in school: Choir — It was easy to practice and I was fairly good at it.

  Favorite year in school? Senior year was the best because I wasn’t as self-conscious and I was involved with activities that made me grow.
