A brief biography.

Garth D. Massey was born in a tiny place north of Vernal, called Brush Creek. He later lived in Dry Fork and then in Maeser, a few miles north of Vernal, Utah. During World War II, Garth was a radio operator and gunner, rank of Tec. Sergeant, and was sent to the China-Burma-India Theatre. He was stationed in Calcutta, India and then transferred to Omaha, Nebraska, where he met Betty Jo Ferron. Betty had been raised in Omaha and graduated from high school there. When Garth was released from the service he came back to Vernal and worked at a sawmill. Betty came to Vernal later and they were married on Garth's birthday, the 28th of November, 1945.

After living in Vernal for about nine months, they moved to Livingston, Montana. Garth worked on an oil rig for a few years and then got a job with the railroad. He has worked for the railroad for 29 years and will retire in two more years. A talented carpenter, Garth has built three different homes while living in Livingston. He loves fishing, hunting and gardening.

His wife Betty, has always seen that the family was well taken care of and that their home was beautiful. Her interests include sewing, crocheting and ceramics.
