He was born on Dec. 6, 1946, in Superior to Francis and Elizabeth Tamietti. As a young man, he lived with his family of two brothers and a twin sister in the Mineral County Jailhouse where his father held the office of Mineral County Sheriff. He attended the Superior School District, where he graduated in 1965. His high school years were marked by his passion for basketball, leading the varsity squad to a State Championship in 1963.
