I live in West Point, Utah. I grew up in Layton, Clearfield and Sunset. I served in the Navy from 1968 to 1976 where I met and married a wonderful "Southern Belle" from Marion, Arkansas. We met in April of 1969 and married that fall on Nov 29, 1969. Our first child was a beautiful blonde girl that we named Jennifer, she was later followed by our son that we named Dean Allen. After leaving the Navy in December 1976 we relocated to my home state of Utah and lived in Clearfield for over 16 years. We moved to West Point about 15 years ago.

I descend from the Robert Bodily (1815-1892) line thru his son Joseph (1853-1926), then Fred (1877-1932), Earl (Erle)(1901-1987) and then my father was Dean H. Bodily (1927-1981. My brother, Dean Allen Bodily (1973-1969) makes the fifth generation of Bodilys in my line resting in the Syracuse City Memorial Park.

Pat, my wife, takes us back through the south following the Gregory, McFadden, Beene, Thomas and Hayes lines.
