Richard (Dick) and Sharon Rees currently live in San Tan Valley, AZ which is on the eastern outskirts of the Phoenix metropolitan area. They are the parents of nine children, four of whom live nearby in Phoenix, three in Utah, and one each in the Portland and Detroit areas. They have 38 grandchildren and one great grandson.
While the Rees’s are both of pioneer ancestry, their parents both left Utah early in their married life and raised their families in the “mission field”. Dick calls St. Louis home and Sharon was born and raised in Atlanta. Following their schooling at BYU Dick and Sharon returned to Sharon’s home town of Atlanta where they continued their family. They lived there for seven years before moving to St. Louis where they lived for 24 years. They moved to Lehi, Utah in 2000 and to Phoenix in 2010.

He has also been a stockbroker and mortgage loan officer as well as the manager of a small investment company.

Over the years, Dick and Sharon have served in many Ward and Stake callings including seminary and Sunday school teachers as well as serving in Bishopric, stake and auxiliary leadership positions.
