Comments from 2001:
Here are some of the things that have happened in my life since our last reunion in 1991.
Worked at US West for 17 years in Marketing, then made a major career change in 1996. I became self-employed. I have owned my own Allstate Insurance Agency for 4-1/2 years. My Agency is one of the largest Agencies in the region now. I have 4 licensed employees working for me. This has been a real blessing in our lives after working in Corporate America for 17 years.
We have 5 lovely children that have brought so much happiness into our lives. Brent Jr. is 24 years old, Summer is 21, Jami is 19, Cari is 16 and Matthew is 12.
Brent served an LDS mission in England Manchester from 1996-1998. My wife and I picked him up, then toured England and Scotland for 2-1/2 weeks. We spent much of our time visiting the country areas. We stayed in Bed & Breakfasts which gave us the opportunity to visit with the local people. We went through the Preston England temple soon after it was dedicated.
Brent Jr. graduated from BYU in April 2001. His major was Statistics. He is employed with a consulting firm in Phoenix, AZ called Watson & Wyatt. He is an Actuary. He had a Scholastic Scholarship for all 4 years at BYU.
Summer had a Scholastic Scholarship at BYU for her first 2 years. She has been accepted and will begin the Dental Hygiene program at Northern Arizona University August 2001.
Jami is a sophomore at BYU Idaho. She has a Scholastic Scholarship. Her major is Elementary Education.
Cari is a Junior in High School. Matthew is a 7th Grader in Junior High School.

We have five children--Brent, 14, Summer, 11, Jami, 9, Cari, 6, and Matthew, 2. I graduated from Weber State in 1978 with a B.S. in business management.
