Elder Darin Hoggan

This is Elder Darin Hoggan, 1988-1990. I currently live in Fairfield, Connecticut with my wife Melody (Nickelson) and our two daughters Grace 7 and Faith 3. We have lived in Fairfield for 6 years. I work for Hewitt Associates in Learning and Development. My wife has a pre-school in our home three days a week and works at the gym the other two.

Daron Johnson Family

Hello fellow DC North Missionaries. I just received the invite for the 20 year reunion. I don't think we can make it this year.

As for me and my family... We have five children: Kelsi (15), Kory (11), Kolton (7), Kaden (5), and Kierra (2). Not sure why all the K's, it just happened that way.

Anyway, we live in Northeast Mesa. We keep busy with all the activities of church, school and ball games. There's not much time for anything else. Maybe we could get together for an Arizona reunion for those living down here. Let me know if anyone is interested. Hopefully, someone will post all the details of the reunion so we can all get caught up. My email is

Update from Elder James Chapple

I'm feeling a bit brave & mostly stupid for being the first to post a picture here, but hopefully others will follow and tilt the scale more back to the brave side of things for me. Since finishing a degree in electrical engineering at BYU I've lived in Chandler, Arizona and do PC chipset design work for Intel.

I'm happily married and have 4 daughters and 1 son ranging from 11 (6th grade) to age 2. While life is busy for us, just the same as it is for others, we've been richly blessed and things are going very well.

I'm able to attend the mission reunion for the first time in about 10 years and looking forward to seeing all of you (at least those that I remember :).
