<p>
<em>Vane Quentin &lsquo;Quent&rsquo; Bates Jr.</em> was born to LaRue Nielson Parkinson and Vane Quentin Bates on October 30, 1931 in Salt Lake City, UT and grew up in Boise, ID, the oldest of four boys. Quent, the informal name he preferred, attended Boise High School, where he not only excelled in the classroom but became a sought-after student-athlete who lettered in basketball and track. His leadership traits became evident when he was elected as president of the Boise High School student body. After graduating in 1949, he enrolled at Brigham Young University in Provo, UT, where he strengthened his academic and athletic skills for two years.</p>
<p>
In 1951, he sought and received an appointment to the United States Military Academy at West Point, NY. On July 3, 1951, he entered the Academy with the Class of 1955 and began a distinguished four-year cadet career. His hard, dedicated work continued to produce outstanding results in the classroom and on the basketball court. As a student, he finished in the top 3 percent of his class and 19th in the class order of merit. On the basketball court, he was always a team player as well as a talented ball handler. His extracurricular activities included the French Club, the Debate Council, the Glee Club, and the Cadet Chapel Choir. In all, he consistently set records that his friends, family, and high school classmates in Boise and at Brigham Young University could remember with great pride.</p>
<p>
In February 1955, because of his high standing in the class order of merit, he was able to select his preferred branch of choice for active duty service, the Army Corps of Engineers. It also made him a serious contender as a possible Rhodes Scholar. His first assignment, however, was to the 125th Infantry Division stationed at Schofield Barracks, HI. While there he met his future wife, Anna Marie Larsen Beal, a Pan American Airways stewardess, while they were surfing off Waikiki.</p>
<p>
In 1958, having completed his military obligation, Quent decided to resign his commission in the Army and begin a new life. His thoughtfully dedicated work in Idaho secondary schools, at Brigham Young University, at West Point, and in the Army had laid the foundation for a career of service in business.</p>
<p>
Returning to the States in 1958, Quent and Anna were married in Carmel, CA on June 21, 1958 and later had their marriage solemnized in the Los Angeles Temple on September 27, 1961. After they married, they moved to Colorado and began raising their family of three lovely children: daughter Christy, and sons Jim and Steve. They would remain in Littleton, CO for 44 years before relocating to Orem, UT. They worked as a devoted team throughout their years together, Anna on the social side of their lives and Quent in the business world.</p>

Houghton Elevator hired Quent. At Houghton he met Charles Lerch, who had left Otis Elevator Company in 1947 to do maintenance and repairs as C.W. Lerch Company in Chicago. Lerch had observed Quent&rsquo;s integrity, strength of character, and reputation and sought the opportunity to work with him. In 1963, Quent was named president, and in 1964 he left Houghton Elevators to join Lerch. That same year the company moved to Denver and, in 1974, was incorporated as Lerch Bates and Associates. Quent was selected to attend a prestigious Denver University MBA program, which he completed in 1977. In 1985, he was named chairman and, in 1998, principal in the company. Thanks to Quent&rsquo;s contributions, Lerch Bates is now an international elevator consulting services firm with 35 offices throughout North America, Europe, the Middle East, China, and India.</p>

The Bates home was always open to local classmates and families and many a holiday was hosted by Quent and Anna when they resided in Littleton raising their family. He was an active alumnus of West Point and a staunch admirer of Army football. He and Anna were heavily involved with the Class of 1955 and participated in organizing his class&rsquo;s first mini reunion in Colorado Springs in 1985 as well as the second mini reunion in Vail, CO in 1995. During these reunions, he could be seen riding the elevators, and as he did he would say, &ldquo;Just checking.&rdquo;</p>
