I have lived in Ogden for about sixty years. I worked at a jewelry store while going to college.

I was in the Armed Service Army Air Corp. for four years during World War II.

I was employed at Hill Air force Base for thirty-three and a half years. I also did furniture repair for several different furniture stores for some time. I now have my own shop where I do beautiful woodwork. It is often displayed at art shows. I also did decor work for McKesson Robbins drug stores.
