Retired Married 4

50 years in 50 seconds.

Shortly after High School, I received a draft notice from the US Army.   After training at Ft Leonard Wood,  MO,  I was assigned to the Army Corps of Engineers and was sent to Germany where I served 10 months in the General Depot.   In March 1968,  I went on leave in route to Vietnam.   I arrived in country 1 week after TET  ‘68 in Saigon, the area most devastated by the offensive,  and participated in the defensive clean-up.   I was also present in Feb ‘69 for “Minni-TET” and left for CONUS and discharge in Aug 1969.

I enrolled at WSC in Winter Quarter 1971,  met my future bride (Deborah Merriam - OHS Class of ‘71) and we were married in 1972 (by far my best decision).  I graduated from WSC in 1974 and we had the first of four daughters the same year.  One of the Police Science professors had written a grant to start a Crime Lab in Utah in 1973 and I was hired as a student aid in June 1974 which turned into full time employment.  I conducted tests on physical evidence submitted from federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies. The bulk of our case load was narcotics and dangerous drug identification but we were a Composite Crime Lab to include: paint comparison, physiological fluids, latent print comparison, firearms identification, hairs and fibers comparison and a catch all we labeled trace evidence which included glass, soil, tars, etc found at a crime scene.  At our peak, we were logging over 2,000 cases a year which included, homicides, burglary, drug possession and distribution, assaults and most everything the police arrested someone for.  I worked for 27 years (until I was called to active duty in the USAF in the support of the 911 attack) and I processed evidence relating to Ted Bundy, Ruddy Rebitrono, Allen Lovell, Jerry Casida and a lot of not so famous criminals. There are a lot of stories that are funny, sad and heart breaking.

The Crime Lab was located in the Social Science Building at WSU and I taught matriculated classes related to Criminal Justice as an adjunct professor on  campus and all over Utah and Western Wyoming.

I Joined the USAF Reserves in 1978 and served as a Special Agent in the OSI. I conducted criminal investigations, fraud investigations, (I worked on the largest dollar value fraud in AF history), I was on protective details over most of the world protecting US military dignitaries and foreign top level military leaders from many countries with, literally, a license to kill. I once interviewed Santa Clause (Really) and a professor who was targeted by Ted Kaczynski, also known as "The Unabomber", I worked at the Pentagon for six months collecting AT and CI from around the world and briefed Two Letter Generals who gave the information to the SECDEF, Donald Rumsfeld, who then gave it to Pres George W. Bush.

I served as a USAF Academy Liaison Officer assisting high school students in the laborious application process to be accepted as a cadet at the USAF Academy, Colorado Springs. I had the privilege to interview Chuck Yeager’s grand nephew and a bunch of awesome candidates from many high schools in Utah.  I retired from the USAF in 2007 with 32 years of service.

I consider my greatest accomplishment as a co-parent with my lovely wife to raise four awesome daughters who have become successful in their labors and family life.  Debby and I have 7 grandchildren who are worth every minute they take from our retirement.

Pam Wheelwright (Crittenden)
retired Elem teacher/homemeaker pamcrit@yahoo.com Married 4
I am looking forward to renewing old friendships and seeing what has happened to our classmates. I am married to Lee Crittenden, and we have 4 children( 2 boys and 2 girls) and 15 grandchildren. We have lived most of our married life in North Ogden, but a couple of years ago sold that home to our son, and we moved back to the Ogden bench.  After high school, I went on to graduate from WSU in Elem Education and taught school for several years. We have both been serving on the Emeriti Alumni Board at WSU.  We went to Lee's reunion (3 years ago) and it was fun to see how different OHS looks now.  We both have fond memories of our time spent there.  Can't believe we graduated that long ago.

retired physical education teacher Married 2
Received a BS in Physical Education. Taught at WSU and coached gymnastics there until my children came along.  Had a child with Down syndrome that made me a better person and also changed the world as I knew it.  Became an author, wrote two books, neither of which became best sellers.  I've learned to slow down, type faster, love more, and know where all the bathrooms are.  I still love critters, people, and chocolate marshmallow shakes.

Accountant Married 4
After graduating from Weber State, I joined the Air Force (better than being drafted) and served as a navigator on active duty for eight years. I was stationed in California, Florida, and Thailand.  I left active duty after getting an MBA at U of West Florida, and took a job in Omaha, NE.  We liked Omaha, but my company had a merger and moved us to Houston.  We've been here for 29 years.  My company was Enron, and it was a great company to work for until the thugs took over.  I've worked for a couple of other companies since Enron went away.  I'm still working, but strongly contemplating retirement.

I was in the Air Force reserve for another 22 years, and retired with 30 years commissioned service.

I married Joyce Stewart (OHS '67) in 1969, and we have four children.  Our three daughters, and all 13 grandchildren, live in the Houston area, so we are together a lot.
