07 A chapter closes

My mom had called Max Huffaker to come out and check on me in spring of 1989 at the cabin. It wasn’t long before Joe Harris and Max came looking for me –but I wasn’t there. They wanted to hire me to work at Decagon. They had just lost one of there key guys. I worked for them until August of 2010 –23 years.

It was then April of 1989. Not too long after that, Ruth Ann sued for divorce. It was official in August of that year. It was the most difficult piece of paper for me to sign. I had a lot of guilt about abandoning my sons, Nathan and Daniel to live with a witch. I had asked my former family to come up and live in Pullman but Ruth Ann was set on staying in Utah. And the money I was making wasn’t much but above minimum wage. I was paid on an hourly basis of $10 per hour. I sold all my electronic stuff to Decagon for $5,000. That allowed me to pay child support for almost 10 months or so. I wasn’t under any court order but I sent $400 per month. The divorce decree was for $400 per month but was increased to $600 per month when Ruth Ann sued again in 1997. I didn’t go to court but just let her win. The fight wasn’t in me. The extra was about $10,000 in billback which I paid in monthly amounts after paying off the child support. I made her wait but she got it all. She tried every trick to get that money accelerated including complaining to my Stake President and Branch Presidents on several occasions. She wanted a church court to settle by forcing me to pay or taking away my membership or temple recommend. She was THE biggest mistake of my life. The Church leaders refused to do any of her bidding although they questioned me several times since they had been contacted by her bishops.
