Joseph Leroy Wirth was born on August 1, 1935 to Joseph and Vernie Wirth on their family farm near Story City, Iowa. Leroy was one of ten children born to the couple. He graduated from Thompson Public School. In 1964, Leroy was united in marriage to Ellen Louise Ezarski. To this union, four children were born: Mark, Charles, Wyatt, and Danielle. The family lived on farms near several cities over the years, including Ames, Neosho, Decorah, and Chariton. Leroy held various jobs over the years, including working as a sales representative for both Montgomery Ward and House of Appliances in Ames, Iowa. He also traveled the world while working as a flight engineer for T.I.A. The job that Leroy was most passionate about, however, was farming. He loved every moment spent on his farm.
