He loved our country and had a great respect for the men and women that served to protect it.
He married Tamara Codgill and had five rambunctious children. They shared many joyful and adventurous years together.
He later married Kohnie Hamilton on June 27, 2013 and had a wonderful marriage. He enjoyed serving three missions for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, two of which he served with his wife where he developed a deep love for the Lord. They enjoyed traveling, serving and spending time together. They built many cherished friendships.
He had a love for life and adventure. He was always smiling and quick to make friends with everyone he met. He was able to captivate any audience with his stories. He enjoyed helping people in need. Rarely a week went by without him cheering on his favorite sports teams, especially football teams. He was big into sports growing up and had a particular knack for football. He was the starting quarterback for Weber State College. He took to flying and building model airplanes and thoroughly enjoyed spending time amongst his friends.
If you were to ask him what he was most proud of he would say his children and that his greatest treasures were his grandchildren. He provided many opportunities to teach his children how to work hard, play sports, learn new traits and enjoy life. He enjoyed taking them on many vacations and adventures. He was generous, always giving gifts and sharing his time.
We are proud of him and ever grateful that he is our father and husband. He will be missed and remembered for the fun and loving man he was.
We love you Dad. Thank you.
