I am still living in Cedar City and have decided after traveling to other places that it is a great place to be.
I married Roy Hunt, who is a great husband, father, grandfather and my very best friend. We have two children together, a son and daughter, 7 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren.
At the age of 72, I am back to changing diapers; gratefully not my own! Our granddaughter and her 2-year-old son Jax moved in with us so she could attend SUU.  Things are definitely not quite at our house anymore.  I don’t believe that kids keep you young or the mirror would be my friend instead of something to avoid!  I Guess we all feeling that the clock went way to fast!We built a beautiful cabin and spend as much time up there as we can. Anything outside is what we enjoy the very most!  I am so grateful for the life that I have had and I am looking forward to seeing all of you again!

CaroleeW3  Paul Wyatt and I have been married for 52 years. We have 3 boys, 2 girls and 21 grandchildren. I have always gathered up young people. I champion their achievements, comfort their hurts and feed them food. So of course they liked me…. or was it my food.
At this stage of my life I look back with thanksgiving for family, those living and gone. I treasure the few family members I have left because we share the same blood and memories. When I say “I love you” it means more than ever before  because it may be the last time I can say it to those I love so dearly.
I treasure you my dear class mates. Your faces often grace my dreams and old  memories bring a smile to my face.
My achievements are many but my greatest attribute is simple. I love and I love to laugh.Be sure to see her stories on the right: Grand Summers and Caught

Hey Class of 60 Friends! I’m looking forward to seeing you at our reunion.  Where has the time gone?  It seems like only yesterday that my parents were going to Mom’s 50 year reunion at Delta High School.  Is ours scheduled a little early or what? After walking through the “C,” I attended CSU for two years . . . and worked at Drug Center with Chad and Bonnie.  After recently looking at a yearbook of one of those years, I decided I must have majored in extra-curricular activities and that I was lucky to have earned an A.S. degree! It was on to BYU in the fall of 1962, where I was immediately forced to settle down academically.  Since I was a music major, I was required to participate in a performing group (BYU A Cappella), but that was about it for ‘activity.’  I received a B.A. degree in Applied Music (Vocal Performance) and a M.A. in Music Education, which included working out a teaching certificate. While at BYU, I met and married James Dunaway (a Music Theory and Composition major).  We moved to Cedar City in July of 1970, and I have lived here since that time.  We became the parents of five children before divorcing and going our separate ways.  Our children, their companions, and thirteen grandchildren have been my greatest joy in life.  Unfortunately, only one family lives in Utah (Bountiful), and the rest are scattered here and there and everywhere.  Most of my traveling is for the purpose of sharing important family events . . . the latest being a trip to Topeka, Kansas, where my son Alan received his degree from Washburn Law and baptized and confirmed his son Isaac on the same day. Another source of personal satisfaction has been my teaching career.  I have taught choral music at American Fork High School (1 year), private voice at BYU and SUU, first graders at Cedar North Elementary (15 years) and at Cedar South Elementary (11 years).  First grade and first graders are wonderful!  We start off each day with a song (there is a piano in my room) and pledge allegiance to the flag.  I love teaching reading and writing and seeing the children (many of them your grandchildren) become literate.  That is why I am still teaching and enjoying it. Life is good!  I manage to stay busy musically by serving on the Cedar City Music Arts Board, directing the Cedar 17th Ward Choir, and playing the piano for the school kids and for Relief Society.

Since our 2010 reunioin I have been retired from teaching (1st grade) for four years now.  I taught 15 years at Cedar North Elementary and 12 years at Cedar South Elementary, and loved my career working with the administrators, and colleagues, and of course, the children.  Since retiring, I have been an ordinance worker at the St. George Temple, working a double shift on Tuesdays.  Now I have been released from that calling, but am still serving as 1st counselor in our Ward Relief Society Presidency.  My only complaint is that none of my three daughters and two sons and their companions and the sixteen grandchildren they have given me live in Cedar!  Oh well, huh?!  I’m looking forward to seeing you at our reunion.

Dave

Two days after high school graduation I was in Fort Ord, California to begin six months active duty with Uncle Sam. Four months after coming home from that fun activity I was off to Norway to serve two and a half years as a missionary.  I was back in Cedar for eight months when I married Maxine Naegle and we moved to Salt Lake City where I completed my requirements for a BA degree in political-Science at the U of U.We moved to Los Angeles for four years and then returned to Utah and have lived in the Salt Lake area since.  I worked as an insurance adjuster for eight years, sold insurance for two years, worked as a department manager in a service industry for twenty five years and then for Delta Airlines for five years (so we could to fly around to see our children and grandchildren) before retiring.In 2007 we served a couple mission to Norway for eighteen months.  I have kept busy in retirement by hobbies (reading, golfing, fishing, gardening, traveling – mostly to visit family), and church and civic activities.Lately I’ve been learning how to fly fish.
We moved to southern Utah five years ago and even though we love Cedar City we were ready to get out of the snow so we moved to Washington, Utah (Green Srings area). We love our life down here. We travel a lot for pleasure as well to see our children and grandchildren. In fact, we leave in a few days for Tokyo. We have been there several times because we have a son, daughter -law and three grandkids that live there! Dave loves to golf and fish. I enjoy being in a book group and playing Hand and Foot with my card group. We enjoy being involved in the community. Dave is active in the Sons of the Utah Pioneers and I am currently serving as president of the Washington East Company of the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers. We are also serving in the church and especially enjoy being ordinance workers at the St. George Temple. Which by the way is the temple we were married in 51 years ago! We just became great grandparents for the first time on September 1 of this year. Life is good for us and we are very happy!

I spent a fair amount of time at the Peace Camp witnessing against the testing, manufacturing and deployment of nuclear weapons.  This poem was written for a poetry project which was part of the  2015 observance of the 70th anniversary of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

In the summer of 1960, after graduating from high school, I went to Los Angeles, CA, and worked while going to school part-time.  In November 1963, I enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps.  My time in the Marines was very memorable for my family and me because many exciting things happened during the subsequent 26 years.  I met wonderful people, lived in many places, and experienced life changing events.   In 1964, I was stationed on the U.S.S. Constellation during the Gulf of Tonkin incident, and completed two tours of Vietnam during the height of the Vietnam War.   I was a Tactics and Weapons instructor at Camp Pendleton,  a member of the 11th Counterintelligence Team in Hawaii, and completed the Thai Language School before returning to Vietnam once again.   I was in Saigon during the Tet Offensive in 1968, and  I was with the 1st Marine Division in Danang in 1969-70.  I have been to the Philippines, Thailand, Diego Garcia, Japan, Hong Kong, Korea, Egypt, Iceland, Italy, Hawaii, and many military installations in the United States.  I was the team commander of the counterintelligence teams in Okinawa, Twenty-nine Palms,  and Camp Pendleton.  The latter part of my career, I was a general staff officer at the Division and Amphibious force level.   I retired from Camp Pendleton in 1987, with the rank of major.After retiring from the Marine Corps, I went on to teach for another 20 years as a middle school language arts, literature, and social studies teacher.  Although I can say that both careers had quite different challenges, the Marine Corps definitely prepared me for the challenging students I would experience at the inner city school where I taught.My personal life has been rewarding and satisfying because I have a wonderful wife, Kathy, and four beautiful children.  I have one son and three daughters who all live in different places.  Kristine, my first born, and Kim, my second born, both live in the state of Washington.  My son, David, lives in California, and my youngest daughter, Beckie, lives in Colorado.  I have nine grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.  Since my wife, Kathy, is retiring from teaching this year, we plan to travel as much as possible to visit our grandchildren and the sights of this beautiful country in the coming years.Also, we hope to leave the state of California (and all its problems)  for a better quality of life, wherever that may be!
