Earl Wayne Adolphson was born in Chokio, Minnesota on March 9, 1934 to George and Frieda (Kruse) Adolphson. The youngest of seven children, he grew up attending school in Chokio, MN, graduating High School in 1952.

Farming was Earl’s life. He raised hogs and grain farmed, mainly corn and soybean. He started farming with his father while in school and purchased the farm from his father after he and Pat were married.

Earl was thrifty. He will long be remembered for the “$5” checks on birthdays. They were sent to each child, spouse, grandchild with a thoughtful card. The annual event won’t be the same without him. Earl was a quiet person but when wanted to know something, he said “So I have a question?”.
