Bill Meador

Q: You had the service and all of a sudden you said you got married to Inalyn. Was she local here? Had you known her before?

A: Lyn and I had only gone together since she was in the seventh grade and I was in the eighth. It took us a long time to make up our minds to do that, and there were bumps along the way like kids have, but we have been together so long it’s ridiculous. We’ll be celebrating our Fiftieth Wedding Anniversary in August of this year.

Q: That’s room for congratulations that’s for sure. You got married and went to Cedar City to school. Were you over in Cedar City when you had your first child?

A: Yes, we were not going to have children until we got out of college. We were married in August and Lyn didn’t get pregnant until October. Our daughter was born there. We really enjoyed Cedar. People were very good to us. I had successful seasons as a player and as a student. I enjoyed college life. It was totally different from Marine Corps life. We came back to Moab and worked here two years, then went back to college to get a bachelors degree and then continued on.
