Sharon's Comments from 1991:
Having received a scholarship to Utah State University, I worked hard and graduated in 1974 with a B.S. degree in Education after only three years. I took a job with Granite School District in Salt Lake teaching Special Education in elementary schools. Bill Larkin and I dated during college and were married in April 1975, when he finished his schooling.
I chose to become a full-time mother with the birth of our first child in May 1977, a girl we named Nichole. Over the next several years, I also had Paul (1979), John (1981), Kimberly (1983), and, finally, Danny and Ricky (twins, 1986). The six children have kept me pretty busy, particularly having the twin boys.
But I've been very active outside my family also. I've almost constantly been involved as a leader in both Boy Scouts and Girl Scouting. Currently, I'm the Blazer Patrol Leader for our local Boy Scout Troop and at the same time serving as the leader of my daughter's Girl Scout Troop. Since having twins, I've been an active member of the Salt Lake Mother of Twins Club, serving on their Board most years. The PTA has also been a part of my life, working in different positions for eight years. Bill and I started a business, Laser Mail, in 1981, but I've not been working there on a regular basis since 1986.
We have lived in Salt Lake since our marriage in 1975 and have a beautiful home in Holladay. I run or play tennis almost every morning and run 5K and 10K races.
Bill's Comments from 1991:
I attended the University of Utah for one year, then finished my B.S. degree in Computer Science at Brigham Young University in April 1975. That same month, I married Sharon Elzey (OHS, 71). We have lived in Salt Lake City in the Holladay area ever since. Though Sharon and I had known each other since elementary school (We were in the same first grade class), our first date was for our Ogden High School graduation night parties in 1971.
My first job out of college was as a Systems Analyst for Salt Lake City Corporation. After a few years there, I went to work for Galbraith & Green, an insurance company, and was the Director of Applications Programming. I left in 1981, having no desire to continue working for large companies and climbing "corporate ladders".
Sharon and I started our own company called "Laser Print" to provide computer printing services using the then new technology of high speed laser printers. We struggled for about five years before the business really began to payoff. During that time, the company name was changed to Laser Mail, specializing in direct mail advertising and has done quite well.
Currently, I serve as the President of Laser Mail, on the Advisory Board of the International Association of Laser Printers, and as an active member of the Salt Lake Kiwanis Club, on the Board of Directors for Larkin Mortuary (in Salt Lake), and as President of the Holladay Baseball League.
Sharon and I have six children (see her biography for details). I play basketball, baseball, and golf (none very well) and have done a little scuba diving in Florida. As a family, we like to go on trips to St. George and to our family cabin in Liberty (Ogden Valley).
