Title A Tractor and a Smile
Description people through the years He loved the students and developed what came to be known to many close to him as puppy-dog syndrome. In his travels around campus he was always finding stray students who were lonely or troubled and needed a smile and someone to talk to and be with. From 5:00 in the afternoon until 1:00 am , you could always find him with one or more students tagging along. A heart attack in 1980 forced his retirement. Leaving the college was one of his most unhappy times. Throughout his life he was an active member of the LDS Church and served faithfully in many callings He was very interested in community affairs and active in restoration efforts in the Ephraim Pioneer Cemetary. He spent many days there weeding, planting and watering trees, trimming mature trees, and taking care of graves. His pioneer heritage was alive in his heart and very dear to him. He and his devoted wife Grace kept busy in the retirement years with gardening, rock hunting, and always caring for a few animals. Through the years he built a very loyal sweet corn clientele who will dearly miss the golden August harvest and accompanying visit with Hayley. Living with and liking people was his strong suit in life. It was impossible to be near him for even the briefest time and remain a stranger. His personality was engaging and friends were made easily. To meet him was to like him; to know him was to love him. Those who knew Hayley have fond memories of the man with a tractor and a smile.
