SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A Utah man who lost his class ring six months after he bought it is getting the keepsake back 45 years later.

Brent Aguirre (uh-GEAR'-ee) of Ogden says his mother was disappointed when the 1966 Bonneville High School graduate lost the ring she purchased.

He tells KSL-TV (http://bit.ly/zT8f9o ) he thought it was at the bottom of Pineview Reservoir, and wrote it off as he pursued a career in the Air Force that led him through nine different moves across the world.

Aguirre says he received a Facebook message this fall from a couple in Sandy who said the ring had turned up in a desk drawer.

Aguirre got the ring back just after Christmas. It doesn't fit on his ring finger, but Aguirre says he's happy to have it on his pinky.
