Meet Your Instructors!

Walter Crovo

Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay area and Santa Clara Valley areas of California. I graduated from High School in 1970. I enlisted in the United States Army National Guard while still in high school. At 17 years old the army found that my strong suite was Infantry (11B). After three years of service and while recovering from a serious motorcycle accident I married and had three wonderful children. I ran two successful family businesses in Salt Lake City Utah for many years. One of my greatest rewards in life was the time spent with the Muscular Dystrophy Association and Primary Children’s Hospital through our association with Harley Davidson. I enjoyed Alpine skiing, SCUBA, long camping trips with the kids, and riding my Harley Davidson all over the United States and Canada.
