Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Sam Wardle


Married my high school sweetheart Gail Kidd in 1966. We have five children. We also had a Navajo Indian young man(Jim)live with us during his high school years. We have 14 Grandchildren and 5 Great Grand children: Dameon(1994), Whitney (1994), Drake(1995), McKenzie(1997), Alyssa (1997), Adrienne(1997), Kylee(1998), Austyn(2000), Conner(2002), Aurora (2005), Sebastian(2007), Matea (2008), Mason (2009), Jaxsy (2013), Great Grandchildren: Rylan Gail(2016 named after Gail), Louis(2017), Hoytt(2018), Indigo(2020), Zalayna(2021). We like to take our Grandchildren on vacations with us with their cousins so they get to know each other better each year.

After high school, I attended LDS Business College in Accounting and Business Administration. Since then I worked for Mountain Fuel Supply as an Accountant for ten years. Then we decided we wanted to raise our children in a rural area. My parents and some of my family moved to Emery County, Utah, and we would go and visit them. Gail said she would move anywhere but Emery County. Six months later we were working for American Coal, then Emery Mining Corporation as an Accountant in Emery County.

I was president of the Huntington WBBA baseball association for several years and my sons were able to play in a WBBA World Series. I have coached several baseball, basketball, soccer, and softball teams since taking over my Father-in-law's little league baseball team in 1967. I have three generations on my mens softball and coed softball teams with my sons Brett and Jason, Grandsons Dameon, Drake, Austyn, and Conner, and Grand Daughters McKenzie and Kylee. We even won our league in 2011.

I was hired as the Coal Coordinator at the Intermountain Power Plant in 1984 in Delta, Utah. I later ended up managing the Accounting Department. I was not sure I would ever retire because I had to go to work to rest. I will retire September 27th, 2018 after 34 years at the power plant. When I taught some of the engineers at the power plant how to play racquet ball, they gave me the nick name of "Rocket Arm."

Delta is what we were looking for when we left Salt Lake. We have a 12 minute commute, can walk on the golf course without waiting, I take my labrador retrievers to the Sevier River each night for a swim, and we enjoy riding our four wheeler motorcycles all over the mountain trails and sand dunes.

When our Grandchildren bring friends to our home, they have to show them our adopted wild horse Honey Nutmeg, llamas Blanca and Lucky, three dogs Duke, Leo, and Pepper, one cat, five chickens, and fifty pigeons.

We also like to travel. We have been on Alaska, Hawaii, and Mexico Cruises, and traveled to Canada, Hawaii, Mexico, and most of the United States, as well as enjoy taking our motorhome camping.

I look forward to our next reunion together.

Gail told me that if she graduated from this life before I did, that I would not last six months before I would be married again. When Gail graduated from this life I realized how much more dependent I was on her than she was on me. I was very lonely, and met Sally Titus who was a widow, never had any children, and now enjoys our 14 Grand Children, and 5 Great Grand Children. Sally has built very good relationships with Gail's and my children, Grand Children, and great Grand Children.
One of our sons told Sally that he was glad she married me, because he did not want to take care of me. We all miss Gail, but we also enjoy Sally joining our family.
Sally and I traveled to Florida in 2012 and I drank from the Fountain of Youth in St. Augustine. I looked in the mirror and still saw an old guy.
Life has been full of blessings and challenges. I hope to see you at the next reunion.
