Class of 1956. Richard H. Berrett. Wildcat Yearbook Photographer, Y'ld Cat Newspaper Photographer, Childrens Theater, Drama Service Award, Radio Club President, Ski Club, Thespians, Band, Junior Prom Committee, Senior Hop Committee. [Although name was spelled Barrett in yearbook, his name is correctly spelled Berrett.] His parents: William Edwin (Ed) Berrett and Eleanor Louise Callister Berrett, married in Salt Lake City in 1926. They had three sons and one daughter, Verne R. Berrett and wife, Grace, West Valley City, Utah; Sharon Berrett [BYH Class of 1951] Starks and husband, Eugene, Santa Ana, California; Richard H. Berrett [BYH Class of 1956] and wife, JoAn, Providence, Utah; and William Brian (Bill) Berrett [BYH Class of 1960-Honorary] and wife, Karena, Blacksburg, Virginia. @1993 ~ ~ ~ ~ I was born and raised in Utah, first in Salt Lake City and then in Provo, with a two-year period in Fairbanks, Alaska. My father was a lawyer and teacher, and when I was eleven years old, brought our family to Provo where he was on the religion faculty at Brigham Young University. He later was made a vice-president of BYU and Administrator of Seminaries and Institutes for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I attended public schools in Provo and BY High from 1953-56. I attended BYU for two years, then served a two-year mission for the Church in the North Central States, which included Minnesota, the eastern half of the Dakotas and Manitoba, Canada. Returning to BYU, I met JoAn at a church meeting -- she was a cousin of one of my best friends and had come from Mexico to live with their family while attending BYU. We dated for a year and a half, got engaged at Christmas and married in June, 1962. I graduated from BYU that August and signed a contract to teach in the Church Education System (I didn't intend to be a teacher, but was pressed into service and told them I would do it for "one year" - and I am still doing it forty-four years later.) My first assignment was at the Orem High School Seminary. In my third year, I was assigned to teach the first Church Education class at Utah State Penitentiary at the Point of the Mountain. So, every day after teaching at Orem, I would drive to the Point of the Mountain twenty-two miles north, go through the clanking doors and teach about thirty inmates in a room adjacent to the prison chapel. I continued to work with church programs at the Prison for the next five years, in the meantime moving to Salt Lake City to teach at the Institute adjacent to the University of Utah and working on a doctorate, then returning to Provo to teach at BYU and complete the doctorate. I received an Ed.D. in Education Administration in 1972. We accepted a position in Phoenix, Arizona at that time and I served as the Director of the Glendale Institute for the next several years. In 1982, we moved to Cache Valley, Utah, to teach at the Institute at Utah State University. We lived in Hyrum, Utah for twelve years and then moved to Providence (immediately south of Logan) where our home is presently. We were blessed with five children: Jolynne, Janine, Becki, Scott and Kristen. Today, all are married and we have been blessed with twelve grandchildren. Two foster sons are also married, one having five children and the other seven. As they both call us "Mom" and "Dad," and the children also call us "Grandma" and "Grandpa," we also claim them as children and grandchildren. While in Arizona, we began to take students and adults on tours to Mexico, even teaching one summer in Mexico City to LDS students as an extension of Eastern Arizona College. In 1975, along with teachers and spouses of the Seminaries and Institutes, we made our first trip to Israel, Italy, Egypt and Jordan. The head of BYU Travel Study was with us and asked if I would conduct tours to Israel for BYU Travel Study. We did that for three years and then I broke off and began to conduct tours on my own. On June 8, 2006, we will be leaving to conduct a tour to Israel, Greece and an Aegean cruise to the Greek Islands and Turkey. This will be the twenty-fifth tour I have conducted to the Holy Land. We have also taken groups to Europe, China, Mexico and many other places. In fact, we will take a group to China in October, a Book of Mormon cruise in January and then another tour to Israel and Egypt in March, 2007. After that we are planning on filling a church mission. In 1975, I was loaned from the Institute to BYU to serve on the administration of the BYU Jerusalem Center. My position was Assistant Administrator and Academic Coordinator. This assignment had me serving on the administrative council, planning and coordinating the curriculum, in-servicing the teachers on the various archaeological and historical sites, taking VIP's around the country, and many other assignments. JoAn served as the Coordinator for BYU Travel Studies and also assisted with many of the responsibilities of the Center and student activities. We had a wonderful experience for three years, returning to the Logan Institute in the fall of 1998. Retirement came four years ago, and today I fill my time with finishing basements and other projects for our children and their families, a few projects around the home, organizing, promoting and conducting tours, and as an ordinance worker in the Logan Temple. I also have continued to teach a class at the Institute in the evenings and also a BYU Extension class in one of the stakes. So we continue to keep busy - in feet, it seems like we are busier than ever. It's been a good life. @2006

Banks, was critically injured in a construction accident. Within a month he had passed away, leaving my mother to single-handedly rear seven children. As I look back now, I realize what an incredible example of courage in action my mother was. With her father’s help, she acquired some old rental units in Salt Lake City. Mom led our fatherless family to renovate those units. She handled many of the repairs herself, fixed the plumbing and electrical systems, painted, and decorated. She even hauled the coal for heating, and rented the properties. Her actions literally saved our family. ... I remember very clearly what my mother said to my new bride on our wedding day in June 1952. Mom turned to Sue and said, 'I’ve raised him for the first part of his life; I now turn him over to you to raise him for the rest of his life.' " ~ ~ Elder Ben B.
