Born in Providence, Utah, on March 22, 1933, to Fred L. Schiffman and Pearl L Skinner, his birth was a special event because he was accompanied by his twin sister, Rita.

A dedicated husband, father and grandfather, he loved his family and the outdoors. Some of his favorite past times included riding horses, playing golf at the Logan Golf and Country Club, family rides on the four wheelers, boating, Aggie football and basketball games, and spending time with family at homes in North Logan, Bear Lake and St. George.
