Patrick and Heidi were married on June 24, 1995 and are the parents of four children, Olivia, 22, Michael, 19, Andrew, 16, and William 14.
Heidi’s motto is, “If I can survive soccer season with four children, I can survive anything!”rrPatrick’s motto is a compilation of two; “The best way to find yourself, is to lose yourself in the service of others,” and “Community is much more than belonging to something, it’s about doing something together that makes belonging matter.”
Patrick and Heidi are both proud to be Red Devils. Some of our favorite dates include an evening at La Casita (been eating there for 40 years!), Market Street Grill with a play at The Capital Theatre, and spending time at home watching a favorite movie.
Heidi’s hobbies include succulent plants (she has hundreds of them) and reading.
Patrick’s hobbies include running and he strives to log 25 plus miles a week and he loves to run Hobble Creek Canyon. His favorite place to vacation is Southern California and always says that the best part of a vacation is returning home to Springville!
Over the past 24 years, they have both served in various capacities in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, enjoying the many years of service with youth and young adults. They have also enjoyed serving all the great citizens of Springville through community service, with the goal in mind of continuing to make Springville a “great place to live.”
