Reynold Edward Baune was born March 10, 1934, in Willow Lake Township near Wabasso to Ed and Anna (Frericks) Baune. He lived on the farm with his parents and attended grade school at St. Anne’s in Wabasso.

On July 7, 1953, he and Ginger Eaton were married in Morton at St. John’s Catholic Church. He farmed for three years, quit farming, and worked at the Wabasso Creamery.
