Judge Married 8
September 29, 2008
Life has been extraordinary since graduation.  I completed BA at U of U in English, law degree University of Arizona in 1978.  Practiced in southern Arizona for 20 years, mostly civil litigation in personal injury, wrongful death, product liability.  Served as mission president for Portugal Lisbon South Mission (including Cape Verde Islands, West Africa).  My wife Diana and I had two wonderful daughters, Marianne and Martha.  Diana died in 1995.  Martha is a terrific mom, living in Orem.  Marianne has a child and lives in Alexandria, Virginia.  She managed a non-profit in DC focused on campaign finance reform, brokering the bill through congress, and defending it through the courts.  Her husband James heads the State Department’s Corporate Social Responsibility office, as well as International Labor.
I married Jeri Curtis, who had 6 kids, and I moved from Tucson to Safford, Arizona.  Safford is famous for President Spencer W. Kimball, world famous binocular telescope on Mt. Graham, copper mining, cotton, Gila River, and nearby Aravaipa Canyon. 
I was elected Superior Court Judge in 1998, and have been presiding judge since that time.  It is a general jurisdiction court, and mostly criminal felonies, domestic and civil litigation.  I enjoy the variety, and the chance to contribute to child protection and family peace.  I have handled at least 3,000 felony filings, 1,000 petitions to revoke probation, about 1,000 divorces and dozens of trials.  I also oversee commercial, contract, personal injury and medical malpractice cases, and sometimes travel to adjacent Arizona counties as a conflict judge.  I serve on Arizona Judicial Council.
Jeri and I have 18 grandchildren between us, and much of our time, like yours, is devoted to our grandchildren.. We are raising one of them, so I am a full time soccer, cub scout and piano practice grandpa.  I wouldn’t have it any other way.  We have five acres in Safford, with cows and horses.  Jeri has a quilting machine with a computer on it and turns out beautiful quilts.
For fun, I return to Brazil or Africa every few years and re-immerse myself in missionary work, going on splits with elders of the LDS Church, teaching, encouraging and explaining my beliefs in Christ.  I have many Portuguese speaking friends on three continents with whom I maintain contact.  This has been a great highlight of my life since my service in Brazil as a missionary in 1970-71.  I have taught missionary preparation for 10 years at Thatcher Institute, and currently teach Old Testament in BYU Continuing Ed for adults.  We are thrilled at the announcement of a Gila Valley Temple, to be built here in 2009. 
It is amazing to see that all of us are much older, mostly wiser, and generally content with what life has offered us.  I am grateful to all of you who added so much friendship and many good examples at Skyline.  God bless you all.


Before September 29, 2008
Life has been extraordinary.  God has blessed my family abundantly.  I had two wonderful daughters with Diana Bird from Highland High, who died after we came home from a mission in Porgtual in 1995.     I then married Jeri Curtis, and gained 6 more kids. We now have 18 grandchildren between us.  My favorite activity is being with them.  Between missions in Africa, Brazil and Portugal, I have refined my Portuguese and love many people from various cultures.  

I teach Old Testament locally, as well as missionary preparation, giving my turbulent life in Court some balance.  

It will be great to see all who attend

You all probably don't remember me.  I was shy back then.  Not so much anymore.  I have two beautiful girls and live very close to where I grew up.  Life has certainly been a journey.  It's had it highs and lows but well worth the trip.  I'm loving life and feel the good lord has blessed me many times over.  It's been fun reading up on eveyone.

Michael Koning
Attorney Married 5 H. G. Linford Over 30 years in Las Vegas practicing law; living in the desert, raising kids, "growing up" myself. I've kissed Elizabeth Taylor on the lips! Kicked Melvin Belli's butt in court and made Dennis Rodman pay for groping a male casino dealer. Most vivid memory of hight school: Football games and Pep Rallies, smell of roofing tar in the fall - buckets in the hallways. Mayor Dan Snarr forgetting to put his track shorts on under his sweats. Listening to loud rock and roll really does make you "deaf". Not everyone thinks the way I do (Although, they should!) Life is a journey, not a destination.
Married second wife Peggy.  Daughters Kimberly and Olivia.  Sons - Christopher, Kelly and A.S. Send Michael a MessageSend Michael a Message

Chemical Engineer Married 7 Darrell Clegg, Donald Budge and Morris Goates I've worked as a chemical engineer since graduating from the UofU, with my Masters, in 1977. After high school I served an LDS mission to North Germany and one of my assignments was in Berlin where my grandfather was born (it included Checkpoint Charlie). Upon returning, I met and married Kaye Chamberlain (American Fork HS '68) with whom I have been happily married for 35 years and we have been blessed with four daughters and three sons. I went to the University of Utah and graduated with an MS in Chemical Engineering in 1977. Kaye and I then moved to Texas where I worked for Union Carbide for three years. We returned to the intermountain area in 1980 to be closer to family. I have worked for Monsanto Company in Soda Springs, Idaho since then. I have worked in the community as president of our local homeowners association, served on the board and currently as president of the community theater guild, served as Scoutmaster several time and have served as Bishop of my ward. So far we have been blessed with four darling grandchildren. My hobbies and passions include reading, life-long learning, hiking and backpacking (even with my new knee). I don't do technical climbing, but I love the view from the top of a mountain. In most situations, life is what you make it to be. Most people are good. Laugh at yourself when you deserve it. Enjoy the little things: a baby's grin and laugh; your spouse holding your hand; the pleasure of a well-written book; the never-ending grandeur of God's creation. Don't forget to set pleasurable goals for yourself.
Forty years sure goes fast!  Looking forward to renewing old acquaintances.  Wish we could get a tour of the school. Send Paul a MessageSend Paul a Message
