Pete and Kathy Witbeck

BYH Class of 1947. Pete Witbeck - Alan R. "Pete" Witbeck. Canadian Student. BYU BS Physical Education 1952. BYU MS Physical Education 1954. Married Lorna Pickering "Kathy" Witbeck.~ ~ ~ ~ Alan R. "Pete" Witbeck came to Brigham Young High School as a student from Canada to complete entrance requirements to BYU. He graduated from BYH in 1947. Pete Witbeck played in the LDS All-Church Basketball Tournament with a Provo ward when he was a freshman at BYU in 1948. "It was a big deal," said Witbeck. "The media covered it heavily. It was really something just to get into it, and you got to meet people from everywhere." The All-Church tournament, sometimes called "the brawl that begins with a prayer" was discontinued in 1971 when it became logistically impossible to organize. Pete Witbeck earned a BS degree in Physical Education from BYU in 1952. He went on to complete an MS Degree in Physical Education in 1954, also at BYU. Pete Witbeck married Lorna Pickering "Kathy" Witbeck. Witbeck joined the BYU physical education faculty in 1954. Three years later, he became the university's first freshmen basketball coach, and over his next six-year tenure his teams went 62-9. He worked during the administrations of five university presidents, beginning with Ernest L. Wilkinson. "I give all the credit to Stan Watts, who had the faith and trust in me, a young guy out of Canada, to start off my career," said Witbeck, a native of Raymond, Alberta, who has been inducted into that city's Hall of Fame. "The greatest moment of my career was being part of that national championship team that won the NIT," Witbeck said. "We were seeded number one, and we swept through the tournament. Back then winning in Madison Square Garden really meant something." In 1962, BYU basketball head coach Stan Watts elevated Witbeck to assistant head coach and gave him responsibility for game planning and coordinating the offense, in addition to his continued role in charge of recruiting. In 1964, Witbeck won the Dale Rex Memorial trophy, awarded to the person who has contributed the most to amateur sports in Utah. In addition to his role as coach, recruiter and NCAA compliance officer at BYU, Witbeck participated in scheduling for football and men's basketball, helping to bring such high profile programs as Miami, Penn State and Notre Dame to Provo. Witbeck also served as the game manager for football and men's basketball, a crucial behind-the-scenes function that required arranging logistics for visiting teams and officials and handling whatever minor problems arose during contests. As game manager, he attended every BYU home football and men's basketball game since 1972. In 1972, when Stan Watts became BYU athletic director, he asked his assistant coach to join him in the administration. The amazing growth that followed is another of Witbeck's greatest satisfactions. "At that time our basketball program was on the national level and we decided we needed to get football on the national scene, too," he said. "Those are the two visible revenue sports and you need them to be successful to have other great sports, which we do now. "When you start winning as we did, that precipitates growth," said Witbeck, who served at BYU long enough to remember the George Albert Smith Fieldhouse before the Marriott Center and the hillside Cougar Stadium, replaced by Lavell Edwards Stadium. "Pete's seen it all when it comes to BYU athletics," said Val Hale, men's athletic director in 2001. "He was there for the NIT championship, on the sidelines for the Miracle Bowl, Danny Ainge's dash against Notre Dame, the football national championship and more. When he departs, we'll lose nearly 50 years of experience and a great lifetime Cougar." Witbeck was inducted into BYU's Hall of Fame for his contributions as assistant coach to Stan Watts on the BYU basketball team that won the 1966 NIT tournament, which was then recognized as college basketball's national championship. The BYU Varsity Club named Pete Witbeck as its 2003 recipient of the Foundation of Excellence Award. During his 47 years at BYU, Pete served as senior associate athletic director and Cougar basketball assistant coach. At the time of his retirement effective September 1, 2001, Witbeck was serving as the university NCAA compliance officer, working to ensure that the BYU athletic program observed the numerous rules legislated by collegiate athletic's governing body and serving as the university's point man with the association. Thanks to his vigilance and efforts to educate coaches and student athletes, BYU is one of the nation's few universities that never committed a major NCAA violation. Fred Skousen, vice-president for Advancement at Brigham Young University said, "Pete has been a right-hand man for five athletic directors over nearly a half century. He's made countless admirable contributions to the progress of the BYU athletic program from a little-known Rocky Mountain school to a national power that won conference titles in 16 of 19 Mountain West sports in which BYU competed." An avid jogger for 40 years, Witbeck also won 12 consecutive BYU intramural racquetball titles and co-authored a racquetball textbook which went through many editions. In retirement he continued his award-winning gardening and spent more time with his many grandchildren and his wife Kathy, who retired after a 40-year career in education. He also attended games in the stadiums his early efforts helped build, although sitting in the stands, he admitted, was a strange feeling. "I've never had that luxury of being just a fan," said Witbeck, who has always had game responsibilities at every BYU contest he's attended. "I don't know if I'll be able to stand it when people start criticizing the coach. But I know one thing, my blood will always run blue." ~ ~ ~ ~ HIS OBITUARY: Alan R. “Pete” Witbeck, beloved husband and father passed away Wednesday, May 5, 2010 in Provo, Utah. Pete was born February 26, 1929 in Raymond, Alberta, Canada, a son of Hampton Witback and Angelina (Dot) O'Brien Witbeck. Pete married Kathleen Pickering on September 3, 1966. At 18, Pete journeyed to BYU on a track scholarship as a long distance runner. Pete earned his bachelor and master's degrees before joining BYU's staff. He became the freshman basketball coach in 1957 and came away with a 62-9 record in six seasons and went undefeated in the 1963-64 season. BYU Head Basketball Coach Stan Watts made Pete his head assistant in 1962. Four years later, the Cougars won the NIT National Basketball Championship. Pete and Stan moved to athletic administration together in 1972. His athleticism also garnered 12 consecutive BYU intramural racquetball titles as well as co-authoring a national racquetball textbook. Pete was known as one of the NCAA's best compliance officers in college sports to get answers and interpretations to NCAA guidelines. Pete was the Senior Associate Athletic Director when he retired from BYU in 2001. He has been the right hand man for five athletic directors. He retired with 48 years of service to Brigham Young University. Pete had many interests including jogging, gardening, and spending time with his family. Pete continued his love of running throughout his life, averaging six miles most days. Pete was a wonderful husband, father, and a truly loyal friend. He was a master storyteller, reciting many entertaining stories of his experiences and travels. He had a delightful sense of humor and loved to hear and tell a joke. Pete was known for his integrity, honesty, exactness and loyalty. He was a wonderful example to his family and grandchildren. You could always count on Pete! Pete is survived by his wife, Kathy, of Provo; son, Von (Kerrie) Witbeck; daughter, Anne (Brandon) Jackson, both of Las Vegas, Nevada; and daughter, Jill Young of Herriman, Utah; daughter, Tori Mobley, of Houston, TX. He is also survived by 11 grandchildren and a brother, Tom Witbeck, of Raymond, Alberta, Canada. Pete was preceded in death by his parents and sister, Nadine Price. He is loved and will be missed greatly. Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m., Friday, May 14, 2010 at the Edgemont 7th Ward Chapel, 555 East 3230 North, Provo.

Class of 1952. Barbara Wolsey. Y'ld Cat Newspaper, Chorus, Notre Maison, Fauvines, Soph Class Social Chair. Married Dean E. Wilcox. ~ ~ ~ ~ Memories flood back to me as I think about the new Academy library being opened soon. I am so happy the Education Building was spared from demolition and made into a beautiful and useful reminder of historic lower campus of BYU. I was a student at B.Y. High School from 1946 until 1952, so many of my formative experiences were obtained there. All of the buildings were old even then, but we weren't concerned about that. Most of the high schools in the area were old at that time. I remember hearing that they were planning a new Provo High School and that we would all have to go there. I was glad it didn't happen until after I left, because I loved B.Y. High. I attended a speech class in the lower level of College Hall. In that same level were practice rooms for BYU music students. The upper level was an assembly hall where most of B.Y. High's drama productions were held, along with all our student assemblies and Jr. High graduations. I fell in love with Thornton Wilder's play, "Our Town" when it was performed by B.Y. High students in 1947. My friends and I participated in many assemblies on that same stage. I attended a few classes in the Education Building -- bookkeeping, eugenics, journalism, chemistry and chorus. There was a small bookstore there where could buy pencils, notebooks, etc., and occasionally a candy bar. Most of the candy bars cost 5 cents, but once in awhile we could afford to buy a "Powerhouse" for 10 cents. What a treat! Most of our classes were held in the Arts Building. Room 250A was on the second floor and was the largest room in the building. It had a stage at one end and was used as a multi-purpose room. Classes, chorus practices, plays, pep club practices and dances were held in 250A. The ninth grade play was performed there in 1949 and I was in it. I think I had one line. One memorable event in connection to 250A was the Sophomore Ball held in the spring of 1950. I was the Sophomore Class Social Chairman along with Roger Bown. We were in charge of class parties. We spent hours decorating 250A with a false ceiling of crepe paper streamers and wrapping tree branches with green and pink paper blossoms. We thought the room looked like a fantasy land. We Sophomores had all turned sixteen during the year, and we had new drivers' licenses. The boys had borrowed the family cars, and we felt very independent. We were just too enthralled with this newfound freedom to stay indoors, so we danced a couple of times and then left the dance, climbing into the autos to "drag Center'. Then we drove all the way up the canyon to the Weight family cabin in Wildwood. We were very excited to be so far away from campus, and we felt very grown-up. It was a memorable time, even if we didn't do much dancing at our Sophomore Ball. I have in my possession the part of the frame from over the door that says 250A. It was given to me by my friend, Arnolene Snow Anderson. As the Arts Building was being torn down, she entered and asked a workman to remove that part of the door frame for so she could give it to me. It is a reminder of many memories of dear old B.Y. High. By Barbara Wolsey Wilcox, Orem. [Provo Daily Herald, September 7, 2001.]

[Note: tol@tctwest.net email is a general address for all members of the "Town Of Lovell" Town Council.] @2010 ~ ~ ~ ~ HIS RETIREMENT TRIBUTE: Friends, colleagues and longtime customers of Bruce Wolsey gathered at First National Bank and Trust on Dec. 8, 2010 to honor the longtime Lovell Branch Manager upon his retirement. A native of Provo, Utah, Wolsey attended Brigham Young Elementary School and Brigham Young High School before enrolling in Brigham Young University. After a year and a half at BYU, he went into the U.S. Army for three years, serving for a year and a half in Europe and another year in Vietnam. Between his two postings, he married his wife, Shanna. The young couple moved to Denver in 1970, and Bruce went to work for Household Finance Co. for one year. He then worked for Metro Bank and First National Bank of Bear Valley before moving to Jackson in 1980, where he worked for First Wyoming Bank for eight years and Bank of Jackson Hole for another eight years. He also worked for Wyoming Financial Corp. for one year. The Wolseys moved to Lovell in 1997, and Bruce took over as vice president and branch manager of First National Bank and Trust in August of that year. He quickly got involved in his new community, serving on the Lovell Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors for some 12 years, helping to form the Rotary Club, serving as a member of the Lovell Town Council for four years (re-elected in November), serving on the Lovell Recreation Board and working as a volunteer in sports-related activities. "I love kids," he said. Wolsey said serving his community comes naturally to him. "I always wanted to be involved in the communities I lived in and do what I could," he said. "I like to see things accomplished and the town growing and help promote things that need to be done and improve the overall situation of the town." That community interest translated into his banking. "The hard part of retiring is that I will miss the persons I was able to help and associate with and help them with their financial needs," he said. "I like to see people get into a new home or get a new vehicle they've been looking for. That's something I enjoy. That's what I'll miss the most." TRIBUTES: Former assistant vice president and loan officer Cheryl Jolley said Wolsey was good to work with and was an asset to the bank and the community with his various activities. "He is very involved in the community, and he was always nice to customers," Jolley said. "He had an open-door policy and was very helpful to me. He taught me a lot. He's very much a family man. Family is very important to him." Mayor Bruce Morrison agreed, noting, "Ever since he came to the community, he's been an asset not only to the bank but to the community as a whole. He's always been involved, from the chamber to the Rotary Club to the town. He has always wanted to be involved and will continue to be so. "He gained the confidence of all the people as the point man for the bank. People respected his abilities. I've always appreciated his financial expertise on the town council." Bob Rodriguez of Lovell said Wolsey "deserves commendations for his dedicated service to the organization," adding, "Sincere devotion to duty is an attribute of the highest caliber, as exemplified by Bruce. He put in his time to the betterment of his company, and the banking firm, I am sure, is cognizant of his de-votedness. "Bruce will be missed by his bank customers, but by his continued volunteer-ism in the community, we'll still reap the benefits of his commitment." "We wish Bruce well and all the best in his retir-ment," First National Bank and Trust Chief Operations Officer Bob Golden said.
