David Clarence Dorn was born March 4, 1934 in Leaf Mountain Township of Otter Tail County to Harry and Barbara (Klimek) Dorn. He was baptized and confirmed at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Urbank. David grew up in Leaf Mountain Township and attended country school there through the eighth grade. He graduated from Parkers Prairie High School in 1952. After his graduation, he helped on his family's farm while his brothers all entered the Service. On June 21, 1954, he was united in marriage to Hildy Cichy (Bettin) at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Urbank. The couple made their home in Urbank where David worked as a foreman for Urbank Bait Company. In 1966, they moved to Fergus Falls where David worked as a carpenter. After retirement, David continued to do carpentry odd jobs. From 1974 to 1987, he and Hildy owned and operated Hildy's Market in Fergus Falls.
