About Me:

An active Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints member, widower, engineer, temple worker, who has many varied interests both religious and scientific, who likes to write, and has many places in the world he would like to see with a loving companion. I lost my loving partner of 59 years a year and a half ago.
I have generally worked in relation to NASA and the space program, but have also supported the Marine Coups in some projects. Have lived in many states and spent over a year in China on a mission. The time in China was one of the best times of our lives together. After her death I published a 170-page book as a tribute to her and am about to go to press with a 500-page book on my family and many essays I have written about religious and scientific subjects. I have also written/edited an 800-page book, An Encyclopedia of Things Ancient and modern From A Religious Prospective, but it is still a work in progress. I have been asked to give some lectures on a BYU circuit but have not as yet done so.
Among my many other activities I set up and manage a high school web site, work full time as a rocket scientist at Hill Air Force Base, work two evenings a week in the Ogden Temple, and stay involved with my family (three sons and a daughter, 16 grandchildren, and seven great grandchildren, each one better than all the rest). I still manage to find some time for dating and fishing.
Another mission is of interest, either temple or otherwise. There are a lot of things in this wonderful world that I have not seen yet but would like to investigate with a new best friend.

LDS singles I'd Like to Meet:

A good meal with a lot of getting to know each other discussions. Finding out about each other's back grounds, family, likes, dislikes, spirituality, and goals.

Church of Jesus Christ:

I was brought up by loving gospel centered parents, and I have always had a testimony which is ever growing. One of the centers off my testimony is temples and work for the dead. Even after reading the last two versus of Malachi and 1 Corinthians 15: 29 about baptism for the dead, no one has done anything about it accept a small group of people called Latter-Day Saints. I thing this proves that the mind of man is not capable of acting on these verses without the direct inspiration of the holy spirit. This is a strong part of my testimony that the Lord is behind this great work, not the rationality of man.
