Carl Foy Ogden History

In his own words - Carl Foy Ogden, Richfield, Ut

"I spent most of my early years on the farm three miles southwest of Richfield, where we had a small dairy
farm. My job was to help milk between twenty and thirty cows night and morning, by hand; bottling and deliver-
ing the milk by horse and buggy to customers around town. In the Slimmer we had cattle and sheep to herd in the
fields or the nearby foothills.

"I attended schools in Richfield, graduating from Richfield High School in 1936, then went to an aircraft
school in Los Angeles to learn the building of airplanes but never did work at this trade.

"My earliest steady employment was as a truck driver for a wholesale grocery concern. I spent some
six years driving between Richfield and Salt Lake, distributing groceries to the various merchants south of
Nephi and Mount Pleasant.

"It was while pursuing this occupation that I met and later married Jean Marie SPERRY, We Hved in Salt
Lake for a short while, then moved to Richfield where I became self employed as an auto mechanic. This became
our livlihood for some twenty years. Then in 1967 I accepted employment with Utah Power and Light Company,
where I have worked since, having held several positions such as meter reader; collector; ware-houseman; store-
keeper; equipment operator and an automotive mechanic.

"Our three lovely daughters have brought us much joy and happiness and are all devoted to the Church and
its teachings.

"I served as second counselor to Bishop Wayne CAMPBELL in Richfield First Ward 1956 to 1961; acted
as Priest Quorum advisor; scoutmaster; Young Men's Mutual Improvement president and other positions in the
Church. "
