Loren Lee Wilson, the son of Donald and Mildred (Knudson) Wilson, was born October 3, 1935, in Spencer, Iowa. He grew up in the Milford area where he graduated from Milford High School in 1952.

On August 10, 1958, Loren was married to Janice Klett. Loren was a successful salesman with many companies. He found his true passion with selling Conklin and farm equipment.

His priority and love was his family. He never missed one activity his children or grandchildren participated in, whether it was a sporting event, livestock show, school or church program. He enjoyed watching them grow. He enjoyed horseback riding, snowmobiling, bowling, camping, boating, golfing and playing cards as well as meeting and talking with people.
