He was born April 1, 1939, to Melvin and Wilma Edelbach at the family farm home in Waumandee, Wis. He attended Cochrane Schools. The family later moved to the Kellogg, Minn., area. He headed Chicago as a young man and developed his first career as a mushroom farmer. He pursued this for the next 20 years. During his time in the Chicago area, he met his future wife, Karen Lute, who was from northwestern Indiana. They met at church and were married in 1971. He and his wife always believed God had brought them together. They were married for 37 years.
Eventually they ended up in the state of Washington, where he spent the next 20 years as a petroleum technician. He retired in 2000, and he and his wife settled in northern Minnesota to be near their daughter and her family who reside in Clearbrook.
