Class of 1965. Randy Peterson [Cornelius Randall Peterson]. Wrestling, Tennis, Honor Society, Newspaper Staff, Debate President, Forensics, Senior Senator, Homeroom Rep, Boys State, State Industrial Arts 2nd Place, Model U.N. I have had a variety of business experiences, including living in Hawaii for nearly six years. For the past 25 years I have lived in Blue Springs, Missouri. A friend and I started a company named Continental Tax Corporation in 1988. For ten years we confirmed and reconciled fixed asset registers with actual assets for companies like United Technologies, Chrysler & Rubbermaid all over the United States and in Canada. Currently marketing with a natural juice from the mangosteen fruit. It was found in Thailand where it is the national fruit, called the "Queen of Fruits" both for its delicious flavor, and for the traditional health benefits associated with its use. Many beneficial effects result from a new category of compounds named Xanthones, more than 40 of which are found in the rind or pericarp which is included in the juice. One of these xanthones apparently kills cancer cells. Many people have seen results with diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, asthma, blood pressure and other challenges. @2005 ~ ~ ~ ~ I am teaching math at Central High School, an inner-city school in Kansas City, Missouri. Knowing how I was in high school has made me much more patient. Maybe in some way I can erase those black marks in heaven I got for sleeping every day in Mrs. Caine's class (right after lunch), and putting my head down in Mr. Bennion's physics class. Next time I go to high school, I will try to be better. :-) @2007 ~ ~ ~ ~ Household: Cornelius R. Peterson, S. Peterson, Sheralyn Peterson. @2009

Class of 1965. Susan Peterson. "Wow, it is amazing to think that 40 years have passed since we were sitting in classes at BY High, attending sports events, assemblies, dances, etc. – actually 42 years for me since I left with my family for Norway in 1963. I must admit I have appreciated being claimed by this class since I didn’t attend BY High my junior and senior years. Thanks classmates! My husband, Mark, our children and I have lived in ten different states and in Korea and Germany (and Mark – Vietnam, Cuba & Saudi) while Mark served as an infantry officer and then LDS Chaplain for the US Army. He retired from the Army on 1 July 1998, the day he began presiding over the New York Rochester Mission. Our three-year mission was filled with challenges and remarkable blessings. We felt so spoiled to have the Sacred Grove, the Hill Cumorah, the Joseph Smith and Peter Whitmer Farms, the E. B. Grandin Building, etc. in our mission. We served with fantastic young elders and sisters, senior couples and senior sisters that we will love forever. After all our global wonderings, we have come home. We are living in Provo again. Mark is working for Vista Care Hospice and I am attending BYU full-time. Since six of our eight have graduated from BYU and the other two are seniors there, I figure it’s my turn. I’m finding school exciting, stimulating and demanding. I love the studying, but am not too fond of stress. We have been blessed with eight wonderful children who have married well and blessed us with 14 adorable grandchildren – so far. Any time you want to be filled in on details of our children or grandchildren, I am most happy to accommodate, as they are my favorite topic. Even though we loved every place we lived, Provo is the spot I love best because it is home, because of the beauty that surrounds us, and because of the happy memories made here. Memories of BY High: ~~I remember how exciting it was when the BY High basketball team won state over Judge Memorial High School! ~~I remember visiting Mr. Allman’s classroom to hold the snakes. Remember how Mr. Allman let tarantulas walk up and down his arm?! ~~I remember great assemblies and John Paxman wearing an extremely tall hat that covered his head and chest and having a face drawn on his stomach -- while doing the whistler! (Sorry if that’s not a clear explanation, but it was very funny.) ~~I remember our English teacher, Mr. Bendixson, telling us that another teacher had 'a few outstanding students – out standing in the hall.'

"I'm happy to be alive and here!" ~ ~ ~ ~ A NOTE FROM JIM'S WIFE, APRIL 2020:

Dear BY High, Jim Petty, Class of 66, passed away on his 48th wedding anniversary, March 31, 2020. He had fought the good fight since receiving his miraculous kidney transplant on August 16, 2019 that unfortunately left him severely compromised. After nearly 7 months in a variety of healthcare facilities, he was able to briefly come home for two weeks. What a gift! He then returned to the University of Utah Hospital for the final two weeks of his life where his immuno-suppressed body succumbed to Influenza A, pneumonia, septicemia and multiple infections in that CoronaVirus battle ground. How the staff loved his quick wit and gentle kind nature. He was true blue to the end as he explained to the Red Zone why he wore a Brigham Young University sweatshirt: “l am honoring the man who started the University of Utah.” Then when asked how he felt just prior to going on the ventilator, the last thing he said was classic Jim: “I feel great!” And he does now, for sure! Sincerely yours, Mary E Petty
~ ~ ~ ~ HIS FATHER'S OBITUARY: April 22, 2015 Dr. Robert W. Petty, 1924~2015. Dr. Robert W. Petty passed away April 18, 2015 at the Central Utah Veterans Home in Payson, Utah. He was born April 12, 1924 in Chicago, Illinois to Dr. Russell B. and Josephine Volker Petty. His young, gentle mother, Josephine died when he was only 12 years old. Later he was devoted to his second mother, Lucile O. Benson Petty. Robert was the oldest of eight children and strived to watch over them and to be a good example. On July 10, 1946 he was sealed in marriage to his sweetheart, Medalou Winter who passed away Sept. 21, 2011. He felt that caring for her was his greatest responsibility. Although his abilities had diminished, his only concern was to be here until her last day. He never stopped worrying for her and asking about her. Robert loved his Savior, Jesus Christ and served Him faithfully for many years through his work as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and his work as a medical doctor. As a young man he served in the Navy and received the World War II Victory Medal and the Korean Service Medal. In his professional life, he was an ophthalmologist with a practice in Provo. He loved the delicacy of his work and the precision it demanded, but he loved his patients more. He graciously received everything from garden vegetables to art work as thanks and payment. In the last years that he practiced medicine, he and Medalou lived in Saudi Arabia where he worked in the King Faisal Research and Specialist Hospital. There he respectfully treated everyone from the King to the poorest desert dwellers. Throughout his life, he was happy to serve in any church calling. Later, he and his eternal companion served temple missions fulfilling his life-long desire. Dr. Bob, as he was called in the last years, was always a gentleman and was concerned for others. Even in the last months, as his mind was clouded, he always offered his help and thanked all around him for every small kindness. He was a loving, considerate man who touched our lives for good. He was reunited with his wife, Medalou; infant daughter, Kathleen; parents; sister, Ruth Wright and an infant brother, Guy. He will be remembered by his children: James (Mary) Petty, Cynthia (Tom) Barkume, Douglas (Heidi) Petty, Janice (Steve) Bagley and Deborah (Brad) Nielsen; siblings: Elma Ray, Carolyn Strong, Jo Anne (Ray) Smith, Louise (Bob) Crowley, Richard (Joan) Petty and Lorraine (Jim) Pallo; 18 grandchildren; 34 great-grandchildren and many others. His family is grateful for the tender care he was given by Bristol Hospice and the Veterans Home and gives a special thanks to the veterans and staff for the respectful farewell. Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m., Saturday, April 25, 2015 at the Berg Drawing Room Chapel, 185 East Center Street, Provo. Friends may call at the mortuary, Friday from 6-8:00 p.m. and Saturday from 9:45-10:45 a.m. prior to services. Interment will be at East Lawn Memorial Hills Cemetery.

Source: Brigham Young Academy & Normal Training School, Catalogues & Announcements, for 28th Academic Year, 1903-1904, pp. 171-172. ~ ~ ~ ~ Gove Edwin Phelps. Born in Arizona, February 26, 1846 to Hyrum Smith Phelps and Mary Elizabeth Bingham. Gove Edwin married Effie Ellsworth and they had 5 children. He passed away on July 21, 1941 in Mesa, Arizona. ~ ~ ~ ~ Life Sketch written by his daughter, Maxine Phelps Lines: Gove Edwin Phelps was the fourth child and first son of Mary Elizabeth Bingham and Hyrum Smith Phelps. His grandfather was Morris Phelps, his grandmother, Sarah Thompson. Hyrum was born the night the mobs chased the Latter-day Saints out of Nauvoo, Illinois, February 26, 1846. Gove's mother was the daughter of Calvin Bingam and Elizabeth Lucretia Thorn, born December 25, 1853 in East Weber, Utah. Their first three children, Mary Laurett who died in infancy, Lucy Ett who married George Fryer, and Barbara Ann who married Seymour Allen, were born in Montpelier, Idaho. The Phelps family was among the first who were called to move to help colonize the Salt River Valley. While they were enroute, they stayed overnight at Lee's Ferry in Arizona, where Gove was born 2 December 1878. When the family arrived in Mesa, Gove's father established a home on the corner of First Avenue and North Sirrine streets. Gove's other brothers and sisters who were all born in Mesa are Harriet Emmaline who married James Miller, Orson Ashel who married Rebecca Allen, Lester Leo who died at age two, Yuma Letitia who died an infant, Grace Darling who also died in infancy, Amy Dorothy who married Charles Morris, Esther who married William Whatcott, Clara who married Charles Robson, and Martha Gertrude who married Charles Wilson, and Wilford Woodruff Phelps. As a child, Gove was always a very happy and obedient child, who loved his parents, brothers and sisters, dearly. He loved to dance, especially the jig. He kept time with bones which he rattled in his hands. In the family yard was a large swing, which he loved, except when provoked by his older friends who teased him by "pantsing" him, and taking him down to chew his ears. When he and his half-brother Guy were small, they used to go out on the desert, where the Crystal Ice Plan used to be, and drown out squirrels which they would take home and make pets. One of his chores as a boy, was to go after the cows. He used to come back riding old "Puss". It was on one of these trips after the herd, that he lost the old blue coat, which was sorely missed by the family, for it was the warmest they had and worn by all the family. During the summer months he and his brothers used to work on the header, to earn money to go to school. He first attended school at the building which stood where the Lincoln school now stands. After he graduated from the Mesa Schools he decided to go to college, which was unusual for Arizona boys at that time. He went to Brigham Young Academy in Provo, Utah, graduating from that school in Commerce. To earn money to go to school, he used to go to the Cove north of Logan, Utah, to work for Levi Allen on the thresher. He was working there when his father returned from his mission in 1900. One summer he came out with only enough money to pay for his room and board. To help make ends meet, he sewed cuffs to his coat sleeves, and wore a shirt front as a dickey, for he had only a few shirts. While in Provo, the story is told that he was dared to run around the block in the snow in his underwear. He and Elijah Allen took the dare. He was always jovial and well liked by his classmates. At graduation his sister Hattie did some sewing for Fannie Allen to buy his class picture. While Gove was in Provo, he renewed his acquaintance with Effie Ellsworth, whom he had known only slightly, in Mesa. They fell in love, became engaged and were married December 21, 1904. Effie's mother gave the couple a lot on North Macdonald Street in Mesa. Gove borrowed money and built a home there, which they moved into the night they were married. After he was married, he worked for the Standard Oil Company, O.S. Stapley Hardware, and North Brothers Hardware. In a building just east of the Valley National Bank he operated a bicycle shop. During an election year, he "buried" all the losing candidates, with proper epitaphs, much to the amusement of the town people. Deciding that it would be better to own his own building, he borrowed money and built at 27 West Main Street, where First Federal Savings and Loan Company now stands, a large building, which had a garage in front, two warehouses in back, and rooms up above the garage, to be rented. He used one of the warehouses for his hardware and bicycle shop. His first son, Kenneth, was born in their home on North Macdonald, August 13, 1907. He was such a very large baby, weighing about twelve pounds, that he had to be delivered with instruments which crushed his head. He lived only about eleven hours. Their next child, Villa Maxine was born two years later, September 1, 1909. Their third child, Wayne Ellsworth was born August 29, 1911. Gove moved his family into an apartment which he fixed up, upstairs, so that Effie could take care of the hotel part of the building. The family stayed in the hotel for about a year, then moved back to their home, where Worth Lovell was born April 21, 1921. When he was a toddler, they moved back to the hotel, but the space to live in was not large enough. The bottom floor, which had been a garage, was converted into more rooms, and an apartment was provided for the family. About the time of World War I, the two warehouses were removed and the back of the hotel was converted into small apartments, and the second floor had more rooms to rent. In 1921, March 2, their last baby was born, and Gove named him Rex E. after the hotel. When the depression came about 1930, the hotel business was so poor, that a part of the building was converted into a grocery store and meat market, which was turned over to Wayne after he was married. At the hotel, he was always fixing something. A leaking toilet, a room to be painted, roof to repair, fix, fix, fix. But he was always good natured. He worked on the First Ward Building, and was in the Bishopric, for nearly all the time I was growing up. I can still hear his beautiful tenor voice. He always sang as he worked, and I believe it was one of the sweetest voices I have ever heard. He was always in the choir, sang in quartet's, and occasionally would sing a solo. He was always frightened when he sang alone, and if he leaned on the piano, he shook it badly. I hope that I can hear him sing again in Heaven! He never wanted anything for himself, but could not do enough for other people. If he went out the door with a bag of groceries, he would tell his wife when asked, that he was going to take a few things to Brother or Sister so-and-so. He loved his mother dearly, and would go to see her nearly every week. He loved his children. One of his greatest joys was to romp, box, and play with them. His vacations were to take them with him to cut a load of firewood. This he did for the church as well. When asked why he did not take credit on his tithing for the wood, he replied that he did not believe in letting his left hand know what his right had was doing. He believed firmly in the law of tithing, and it came first for settlement, even before taxes, which sometimes threatened the loss of the hotel. When his grandchildren came along, he was never known to be without Black Jack chewing gum in his pocket. They loved him too, for he always took time to play with them. His greatest pleasure was hunting with his brother Wilford, or his nephew Edwin Miller. When his boys got older he took them with him. He operated the old Crystal Pool with his boys for many summers, and had great pleasure in watching them learn to swim and dive so beautifully. He built swings, tetter-totters, monkey bars for his grandchildren. No matter what needed to be done, he always had time for them. His generosity knew no bounds for others, but for himself he wanted only the necessities. He had always extremely good health. He remembered only one time being extremely ill, and that was after eating sour grapes and then drinking ice water. I remember that we worried about him during the influenza epidemic, but he did not have it as so many did during the war. Shortly before he died he complained of having some pain in his chest. After much urging, he went to the doctor who diagnosed it as appendicitis. He went to the hospital for surgery, and a series of small heart attacks followed. He had the feeling that he was going to die, and begged to be taken home. After several more severe attacks, he died 23 July, 1941. He was buried in the Mesa Cemetery. He was loved by thousands for his generosity, his thoughtfulness, and his loyalty to his friends. Source.
