Victor "Vic" A. Schwab, the son of John and Martha (Ruther) Schwab, was born on September 23, 1925 on a farm near Fulda, Minnesota. He grew up on the family farm, which was homesteaded
by his grandparents and attended country school through the 7th grade. His parents thought he needed a better Catholic education, so he attended St. Gabriel's Catholic
School in Fulda and graduated from the 8th grade. During the school year he lived during the weekdays with Mrs. Margaret Downey in Fulda. Vic then started farming with his father. In January 1945 he was drafted into the U.S. Army.

moved to a home in Fulda.
Vic passed away on Monday, March 3, 2008 at the Sunset Cottage Hospice Home in Worthington, MN at the age of 82.
