Willard Van Wagoner, son of Elden Horace and Sarah Jane Pinegar Van Wagoner, was born 13 April 1932 in Wellington, Utah.
    He married Marilyn Mead on the 8th of October 1954 in the Manti Temple. While in Price they were blessed with three children, and later, in Salt Lake and Murray they had two more children.
    Willard was employed by the Church Financial Department, and while acting in this capacity he was asked by the department to be their representative in the British Isles, with the office at Haredon House, North Cheam, Surrey. They left for England on January 20, 1967.
    Marilyn says, "Since arriving here, we have been actively engaged in Church and other activities. Willard is serving as M Men Gleaner Leader, Ward MIA Superintendent, and London Stake High Councilman. Marilyn is first Counselor in the Ward Relief Society, Primary Teacher and Junior Sunday School Co-ordinator."
    Willard is enjoying his work very much, being involved in accounting for the building projects costs, Ward and Branch Financial Report, Payroll, Purchasing of mission vehicles, etc. He has found it stimulating and quite a challenge. It is truly a blessing to see the growth and development of Church Programs first hand and to be completely involved in the work of the Lord.
