David Bennett Wickman was born on September 9th, 1941 to Ruth and Marden Wickman. He lived in Minnesota for part of his life and graduated from Kerkhoven High School in 1959. While in Minnesota he was an avid fisherman and fishing tour guide on Mille Lacs Lake, MN for a number of years.

In 1986 they decided to start their own trucking company, which went thru 2007.  He then went and drove truck for A-O Express until his health wouldn’t allow.
