Our much loved father, son, brother, husband, James (Jim) Harold McEwan, 58, unexpectedly returned home to our Heavenly Father on March 4, 2007. Jim was born on April 8, 1948 in Provo to Junius Harold and Lois Dixon McEwan. He grew up in Orem, attended and graduated from Orem High School in 1965. He served in the National Guard during the Vietnam War. He married Dorcus Rita Fowers on July 1, 1970 in the Idaho Falls, Idaho Temple for time and all eternity. From that beautiful union, seven beloved children were born: Sandra Lee, Tamara Lynn, Melissa Ann, Cynthia Kay, Richard James, John Robert, and Steven Scott. Dorcus died August 15, 1993 in Highland, Utah. We take great comfort in knowing that he is reunited with Dorcus, his loving and eternal companion. He married Jeanice Fox Asay on December 1, 1994 in the Salt Lake City, Utah Temple for time. From that union, one sweet child was born: Jaron Fox. Jim and Jeanice divorced. Jim married Betty Marvin on June 17, 2006 in the majestic outdoors under a beautiful apple tree. From the union, three wonderful children were embraced: William Ray Smith, Kathryn Ann (Smith) Young, and Vance Ivan Marvin; and two beautiful grandchildren. He was a very successful and legendary baker for his entire adult life. He worked for Albertson's for more than 20 years as a baker and bakery manager. In 1990, Jim and Dorcus opened a bakery of their own which he operated until the spring of 1996. He sold the bakery to his daughter and son-in-law and moved to Salina, Utah to work as the Bakery Manager at the Thriftway grocery store in Gunnison, Utah. In the summer of 1999, he moved to Salmon, Idaho to work at Saveway as the Bakery Manager, where he worked until June 2006. Jim was a sensitive and compassionate husband, a good father, and a wonderful provider to his family. He was always willing to lend a hand and help wherever and whenever he was needed; and he "never met a stranger." He had a tremendous passion and respect for nature and loved to spend his spare time experiencing it. He could not get enough of the high country, evergreen forests, the gorgeous full moon, beautiful clouds, crystal clear lakes, magnificent wildlife, and brilliant sunrises and sunsets. He loved his Rock & Roll and he loved it loud! Jim is survived by his parents, Junius Harold and Lois Dixon McEwan; his sister, Linda (Ray) Morgan; his brothers, Alan (Debbi) McEwan, David (Susan) McEwan, and Glen (Gloria) McEwan; his children, Sandra (Trevor) Farley, Tamara (Jason) Gibbons, Melissa McEwan, Cynthia (Rob) Frary, Richard (Amie) McEwan, John (Mykin) McEwan, Steven McEwan, and Jaron McEwan; his step-children, William (Gerry) Smith, Kathryn (Jon) Young, and Vance Marvin; his 12 precious grandchildren.

Patent 6629147 issued 2003-09-30 Application 09/540,925 filed 2000-03-31. A system and method of transmitting data frames between a plurality of input ports to a plurality of output ports is described. The input ports segment portions of the received data frames to provide smaller data cells which are individually transmitted to an output port associated with a destination of the segmented data frame. Based upon information provided in the data cells received at the output port, the output port determines the ordinal positions of the received data cells within the segmented data frame and reassembles the data frame which was segmented at the input port. The output port then forwards the reassembled frame toward the associated destination. Inventor: Robert Grow, Poway California.

BYU 1971, BYU Hawaii 1985, Arizona State University BS Elementary Physical Education Department. ~ ~ ~ ~ NEWS ARTICLE: July 3, 2001, Provo Daily Herald. Dorothy Evelyn (Evie) Harrison is in town this week. But if you want to see her you'll either have to get up very early today or look for her high in the skies over Provo.

Evie, a 1967 BY High graduate, attended BYU for a time then moved on to Arizona State University where she earned a degree from the Elementary Physical Education Department.

But even then Evie had her head in the clouds. In 1977 she joined a hot air balloon ground crew. Those are the grunts who unpack and pack, inflate and deflate, transport and chase the giant, colorful bags of heated air. It's hot, hard, seemingly thankless work.

But, for the daughter of Dr. Jack Harrison, of Provo, it was love at first flight; and Evie couldn't rest until she earned her basic pilot license, bought her own balloon, sought additional training and eventually became a commercial pilot.

She quickly rose to the top of her chosen profession, becoming president of a national organization of balloonists. In 1986 she was invited to fly in the Paris, France Hot Air Meet. Several years later she drifted over Kenya, Africa, photographing some of the world's most exotic wildlife.

After teaching for many years, Evie has retired and spends much of her time hop scotching around the country to attend events such as today's Freedom Festival Balloon Fest, where she will be one of 30 pilots launching their magnificent balloons at Freedom Field, 1100 N. Freedom Blvd., in Provo.

But, if you want to meet Evie, you'll need to get up really early. The balloons start launching at 6:30 a.m. [Provo Daily Herald, Tuesday, July 3, 2001.]

Spanish Club, French Club, Honor Society, Letterman, Forensics, Football (Honorable Mention All-Region 4), Basketball, Wrestling (Captain as a Senior), Track, 4th Year Seminary, Boy's State 1966, National Merit Scholar, 1st Place National Math Association Test as a Junior. BYU BA Political Science 1972 - With Honors. George Washington University, JD Cum Laude 1975 -- Articles Editor, The George Washington Law Review (1974-75). After I graduated from BY High in the Class of 1967, I served a mission in the Central American Mission and graduated from BYU. While in law school at George Washington University, I met and married Marianne Coltrin, who was working for Senator Wallace Bennett at the time. She is the daughter of Bill Coltrin, who covered high school and BYU sports for the Salt Lake Tribune until his death in 1971. I worked first for the government in Washington DC, including the staff of the Senate Watergate Committee and the Interior Department Solicitor's office. After the Interior Department transferred us to Salt Lake City in 1977, I left the government and entered private practice. I am currently at Holland & Hart. I have also been an adjunct law professor at BYU Law School and the U of U Law School. We have five children – including a son we lost in an accident in 1992. We have nine grandchildren. In 2015-16 we served a mission to Argentina and Chile, where I was a legal advisor for the Church and Marianne was a temple worker. @Jan2016 ~ ~ ~ ~ HIS OBITUARY: April 4, 1949 ~ March 13, 2020. James Arnold Holtkamp "Jim", beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, friend, and colleague, passed away peacefully after a valiant fifteen-year battle with cancer. He spoke fluent Spanish from childhood summers spent at his grandparents' ranch on the Mexican border, and developed a life-long love of Hispanic people and culture. Jim valued relationships, remaining close with his beloved Brigham Young High School Class of 1967, as well as el Seño de Abraham, his college roommates. The highlight of his service as a young missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Central America was taking a dugout canoe to the San Blas islands off the coast of Panama, where he taught the gospel of Jesus Christ in flip flops and discovered iguana as a culinary specialty. After graduating from BYU in Political Science in 1972, Jim attended George Washington University Law School where he made lifelong friends in the Washington Ward, including his best friend, Marianne Coltrin, who agreed to marry him after he rescued her from falling off a roof during a ward service activity. After marrying in the Salt Lake Temple on December 28, 1973, they raised five children together in Salt Lake City. After working for the Senate Watergate Committee and the Interior Department, Jim embarked on a fruitful and pioneering legal career in climate change and air quality. Jim was a prolific contributor to the field of environmental law, publishing many articles, and was an American College of Environmental Lawyers Fellow. Jim proudly served as the president of the Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Foundation, with family summer vacations planned around the annual Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Foundation Institutes. He served on several nonprofit boards related to environmental law, including LDS Earth Stewardship, and Utah Clean Energy. He assisted the Pax Natura Foundation in their rainforest preservation work in Costa Rica. Jim was an adjunct professor at the J. Reuben Clark Law School at Brigham Young University, and the S.J. Quinney College of Law at the University of Utah, and was selected as one of the first senior fellows of the Wallace Stegner Center for Land, Resources, and the Environment at the S.J. Quinney College of Law. He won many awards for distinguished service throughout his career, including the Excellence in Teaching Award at the S.J. Quinney College of Law in 2008. Jim loved mentoring associates and students, with teaching and scholarship being his vocational passions. Jim believed in Jesus Christ and acted accordingly. He devoted his life to service, including as scoutmaster (guiding many young men to become Eagle Scouts like himself), twice as bishop, temple worker, juvenile detention service missionary, legal services missionary in Buenos Aires and Santiago, and finally as Elders Quorum instructor. He taught the Sunday lesson five days before his death. Jim often expressed gratitude for opportunities to serve, especially as bishop for the Spanish-speaking ward of the Millcreek Stake. While on chemotherapy and working full-time in his demanding profession, he often commented that serving the people of his beloved "barrio" energized him and gave him great purpose. Jim's life extended long past the expectation of his treating physicians, likely because he devoted his life to others. Jim loved listening to classical music, reading books on every subject imaginable, and writing poetry which he used to help him heal from the tragic death of his oldest son in 1992. Jim loved cycling and summiting peaks in the Wasatch until disease robbed him of the use of his legs. Jim was gentle and kind. He had the unique gift of seeing the best in others (though he enjoyed gently lampooning his family in his clever and pun-filled annual Christmas letters). Jim's humor, selflessness, and intelligence will be missed. The family would like to thank Huntsman Hospice; his long-time personal trainer, Kacey Payzant; his personal caregivers, April and Aaron Graves; and his oncologists, Dr. Jonathan Whisenant and Dr. Ignacio Garrido-Laguna. Jim is survived by his wife of forty-six years, Marianne; children Ariane Dansie (Dave), Rachel Marshall (Austin), Allison Holtkamp (Jake Waid), and David Holtkamp (Jen); grandchildren Will, Caroline, James, Isaac, Rebekah, Isabel, Nathan, Sean, Brent, and Tessa; and his siblings. He now is reunited with those who preceded him in death, including his son, Brent, and his parents, Karyl and CJ. The family will be holding a private graveside service. Once public health concerns have subsided, the family will host a memorial service, date and time to be announced. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the James Arnold Holtkamp Scholarship Fund at the S.J. Quinney College of Law.

Curtis and Barbara Johnson

Class of 1967. Curtis T. Johnson. Science Club, Band, Track, 4th Year Seminary, Transferred to BYH as a Senior. BYU BS Computer Science 1972. ~ ~ ~ ~ HIS OBITUARY: Curtis Thayne Johnson - September 24, 1949 – April 30, 2013. Curtis Thayne Johnson, 63, peacefully passed away at home on April 30, 2013 from multiple complications secondary to liver failure while waiting for an organ transplant. Curtis was born on September 24, 1949. He was the first born of five to Thayne and Iris Johnson. During his childhood the family resided in Southern California where he is remembered as being an adventurous and active child who craved the outdoors. Thayne and Iris loved taking the children on frequent outings in the family trailer. Curtis delighted in being airborne, side by side with his father in the cockpit. He always longed to be a pilot, but the need for vision correction thwarted him from achieving this dream. Curtis and his dad enjoyed the scenic byways everywhere they traveled. As a father, he never missed the dirt road less traveled that took us into the unknown, where some of the best memories were made. The family relocated to Utah in the early sixty's where Curtis found the mountains irresistible. He summited his first mountain (Mt. Whitney) as a young teenager and later volunteered on the Mountain Rescue team as part of the BYU Alpine Club. Curtis found great joy tinkering with electronics and achieved his amateur license as a Ham radio operator. He is remembered for attempting to make his own hang glider, loving anything to do with water, and for his amazing marksmanship. Curtis graduated from Brigham Young High School in the Class of 1967, and obtained his Bachelors in Computer Science from Brigham Young University. He enlisted in the United States Army and served for 2 years before his honorable discharge at the rank of SP5. His polished typing and English skills influenced the General to "keep Curtis around", and as a result he was spared from being deployed overseas. Curtis was sealed for time and all eternity to his high school sweetheart, Barbara Jean Babb, BYH Classes of 1968-69, in 1970 in the Salt Lake City LDS Temple. They raised their four children in Pepperell, Massachusetts until 1985, when they returned to Provo, Utah. Curtis was recruited after graduation by Digital Equipment Corporation and then later for Wang Laboratories and Novell. His sense of adventure then led him on an entrepreneurial journey with the startup company DISX. He was truly passionate about his final job as the manager of the American Fork LDS Employment Center where he enthusiastically coached a team of missionaries to help others find gainful employment. Curtis was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He was fondly nicknamed "sound guy", "Mr. Fix-it", "Papa Curt" or "BJ" by his ward family and friends. He eagerly accepted callings throughout his life, but his time spent serving the youth was always his favorite. He treasured his time spent with the Young Women at Camp Shalom and trekking with the Boy Scouts in the High Uintas. Curtis could be called by anyone, anytime, anywhere and he would be there to get the job done. We will never forget the countless hours he spent reading in his big Papa Curt chair and his never-ending quest for knowledge. He believed a spread sheet analysis should fix ANY problem. He had a deep love for music and enjoyed listening to his children and grandchildren practice and perform. We knew when the ward choir was scheduled to sing, because he would be giddy for days beforehand. We will miss the popcorn that he popped in his whirly pop nearly every day, the roar of the lawn mower at the start of every family gathering and the anticipation of snowfall as an excuse to fire up the 4-wheelers and attach the plow. He was our resident astrologist, librarian, weatherman, swim coach, "jump or dive" caller, water polo referee, dive judge, music critic and the best Santa's helper ever! Curtis is survived by his wife of 43 years, Barbara; his four children Michael (Wendy), Rebecca (David) Mullen, Matthew (Kristin), Megan (Bryan) Hepworth; his siblings Darla Rogers, Terri Lee (Jon) Burgener, Kevin (Elizabeth) and Brian. He will be greatly missed by his 13 grandchildren; McKenzie, Chase, KC, Cassidy, Alexis, Kiersten, Madilynn, David, Matisyn, Sammy, Emilyn, Abigail and Lucas. There are countless nieces, nephews, cousins, "adopted" children and grandchildren, and his best friend and ball of fluff, Kizzy, that will miss him dearly. He is preceded in death by his parents Harvey Thayne Johnson and Iris Helen Schlerf. Funeral services will be held Monday, May 6, 2013 at 11 am at the Provo Sharon East Stake Center, 2400 N. 1060 E. in Provo. Friends may visit with the family Sunday evening from 6-8 pm at Walker Sanderson Funeral Home, 646 E. 800 N. in Orem and at the church Monday morning from 9-10:45 a.m. Burial will be at East Lawn Memorial Cemetery Provo, Utah. - In memory of our husband, father, brother, grandpa, uncle, cousin, neighbor and friend, we encourage everyone to give the gift of life and become an organ donor. THE NEED IS REAL - Today 117,840 people are waiting for an organ. 18 people will die each day waiting for an organ. 1 organ donor can save up to 8 lives.

[Deseret News, Thursday, January 20, 2011.] ~ ~ ~ ~ HIS BIOGRAPHY: When Russ Maxfield walked into the room, people took notice. He always brought about with him an enthusiastic spontanaeity and had a contagious smile. He was a clever and witty person who was always willing to help others. He was patient, kind and outgoing and he was well known for his comic relief as he was always at the ready with a good joke. Russ was born September 17, 1948 and was the son of Rex Maxfield and Eda Theobald Maxfield. The family moved around a bit, but they lived most of their years in Cedar City, Utah. From the time Russ was 5 years old, he was raised by his mother and his stepfather, E. Blair Maxfield. He had two younger half-sisters, Ladaun and Anita Rae. Young Russ was full of curiosity, rambunctiousness and mischief. Eda always told stories about having a hard time keeping up with him. In one of her favorite stories, she recalled how when Russ was little, he got lost at a store while shopping with her once. He somehow ended up at the police station where they gave him ice cream and candy. His mother finally located him there and took him home. A couple of days later, Russ came up missing again, and again, Eda found him at the police station, where they were once more giving him treats. This continued to happen: Russ would take off on his trike to the police station, and his mother would show up to get him. She finally had to get mad at the police officers and tell them to stop giving him ice cream and candy so she could keep him home. Blair recalls, “My first contact with Russell was when he was 5 years old. Russell was a very happy, very active little five-year-old. He thought everyone was his friend and would visit with anyone and everyone. He loved to explore and would take off on his tricycle and later his bicycle whenever he could get away from whoever was tending him. His curiosity knew no bounds. He would get into anything he could get to and as he grew older he had to take everything apart to see how it worked. This curiosity has lasted all his life. He has always enjoyed people. I think that is why he as lasted longer at the casino than on any other job, because here he was working with people.” As a boy, Russ was also active in the LDS Church and Boy Scouts. During his high school years, Russ was a ‘brain’ but school bored him. He did not necessarily like school and seemed to be always a little ahead of the other students. He did alright however, grade wise. During his freshman year of high school, he went to four schools. He started out in Salt Lake, moved to Bakersfield, then on to Sacramento and finally Bellevue, Washington. Russ graduated from historic Brigham Young High School in Provo, Utah in 1967. He also attended Dixie College in St. George, Utah and served an LDS mission in England from 1967-1968, but returned early due to health problems. Russ was easygoing and demonstrated a deep concern for others. He always seemed aware of what was going on with people around him and throughout his life he made many, many friends. He was shy, however, about certain things, but an extrovert overall. He had a high school sweetheart by the name of Tafta, with whom he still stayed in touch with over the years. One of his closest friends was Chuck Dayton, and they were best friends for over 40 years. He was also good friends with Joe Neal, Don Gates, Jim Ward, and cousins Randy Bell and Terry Steed. On June 5, 1970, Russ married musician, Carol Susan Hansen (Sharp) at the Salt Lake Temple in and they had three children together: two daughters, Georgeanna and Korie, and one son, Kristopher. They have also been blessed with five grandchildren, Aspen, Chaz, Ryan, Tyler and Grayson. On, July 8, 1983, Russ married artist, Nancy Kugler at the Little Church of the West in Las Vegas. They were together for about 10 years, then reunited later and shared their lives together for the remainder of Russ’s life. Nancy recalls that “we were both happy all of the years that we were together. One reason or another there were always plans and activities that took up our lives and it never got boring.” Nancy also stated that she could write an entire book about their lives and many adventures they shared. Throughout his life, Russ resided in many states, and particularly loved the city of Las Vegas. He worked as a blackjack and craps dealer and casino floor manager for the Las Vegas Hilton for over 10 years in the 1970s. Due to his talent for making acquaintances easily, Russ had the pleasure of meeting Elvis Presley and establishing a working friendship with him. One of his favorite stories to tell was how every year, Elvis used to dress up as Santa Claus for the Hilton employees’ children. No adults were allowed! However, Russ’s two girls will forever have bragging rights to say they have sat on Elvis’s lap and have been kissed by Elvis! This would cause many women to become quite envious! Also, for many years, Russ wore a gold chain that once had a pendant belonging to Elvis. He was very proud of that and many of his family members and close friends will recall that he rarely took it off. Russ also worked for several other Las Vegas casinos including the Landmark Hotel, Showboat Hotel, the MGM Grand Hotel in Reno, and most recently, the Tropicana Hotel. Russ was an entrepreneur and a man with many hats. He had diverse interests and held many other jobs over the years including: skydiving instructor, chef, restaurant manager, telecommunications, and many others. He also started and ran his own businesses in home remodeling and computer repair. Because Russ loved to have a broad variety of activities in his life, he took advantage of the opportunity to pursue numerous hobbies. He enjoyed motocross racing, home and auto restoration, and sailing. He has always loved to travel and one of his favorite trips was to Mexico with Nancy. He was a self-educated computer genius, and a highly skilled golfer, so good that he could have gone professional, had he wanted to. Russ derived much satisfaction from participating in and watching sports. In high school, he played football, wrestled, and ran track (specializing in hurdles and high jump), lettering in several of these, and his sports success continued well after high school. Russ has always been something of a sports fan and enjoyed watching football whenever he got the opportunity. His two favorite teams were the San Francisco 49ers and the Oakland Raiders. Russ always had a certain style and inventiveness to him. He was a dynamic, charismatic, self-expressive person who was forever looking to celebrate the endless possibilities life had to offer. He had a knack for being clever, creative and witty. He had a magnetic personality that others wanted to be around. It seemed as if many others looked to Russ Maxfield for inspiration, leadership, wisdom and encouragement. Russ was always more than willing to share life’s experiences with his loved ones and will be dearly missed. ~~ Korie Maxfield, January 20th, 2011. Source.

First married John Ricks (Provo HS). They raised six kids, and she has 8+ grandchildren. After BYU, she and John moved often while he was in the Air Force. He eventually taught high school which took them to other places. They settled in West Valley City, Utah, where they lived until he passed away with cancer. She second married Preston Bair. "I was one of those fortunate students who attended B.Y. High. I began my education there in the fourth grade. I felt so proud to attend the Brigham Young University Elementary Laboratory Training School. We got a kick out of using that elongated title. I think my class had a reputation for being rowdies. The guys had fun sneaking out of windows during class, and the girls weren't afraid to go down the outside fire escape during gym class on the third floor of the lab building. I remember the student teachers. While I was in the fifth grade, as a joke on us, one of the sixth grade boys dressed up as a girl and sat with a real student teacher at the side of the class. We couldn't keep our eyes off him. She was weird, but we'd had weird ones before. When he finally revealed himself, we were angry for being deceived. But the all-time best student teacher story was from chorus class. When a particularly gullible young man was asked to direct the class, we claimed we couldn't see, so we asked him to stand on a chair. Mr. Webb always stands on a chair when we can't see him. (Mr. Webb wasn't very tall.) We eventually got him up on the grand piano, and he was leading us from that perch when Mr. Webb entered the room. The student teacher was embarrassed, Mr. Webb was aghast, and yet we all had a good laugh, especially because the student teacher was quite tall in the first place. When we graduated to the seventh grade we got to walk the halls with the tall and handsome basketball players. Basketball was big at B.Y. High. Even though our enrollment was small, we played as well as the bigger schools in the region. I remember when the Wildcats won the state tournament. My family drove us to Salt Lake City for the championship game. I remember the smell of the sawdust on the inside track of the fieldhouse on the U of U campus. I don't remember whom we played, but I do remember the final score, 58–51. Almost everyone from Provo stopped and had ice cream at Snelgroves afterward to celebrate. Football home games were great, too. Not every high school team got to play in the new Cougar Stadium!" [Marilyn Monson Ricks, BYU '71, BYU Magazine, Summer 2001]
