Conrad Willis Lundsgaard, the son of Emil and Mabel (Krogh) Lundsgaard, was born and lived in Ruskin, NE until his family moved to Quimby, IA, and then south of Cherokee, IA where he attended Wilson High School. He briefly attended college until he enlisted in the United States Air Force, and was stationed at Darmstadt, Germany.
