RAYMOND A. STUEVEN was born to John H. and Marie Alvina (Winter) Stueven on April 5, 1921 on the Stueven family farm in Pipestone County, Minnesota, where he was raised and attended country school. Upon completion of his education, he worked at various jobs until July, 1942, when he entered the United States Army Air Corp at Fort Snelling, Minnesota. He was transferred to Kansas City, Missouri to attend school for airplane mechanics and also electrical school. After completing these courses, he was stationed in Alaska as an aircraft electrical mechanic. When he was discharged from the service in 1945, he returned home and went into farming with his brother Harold on the home place. On February 8, 1948, he was united in marriage to Arlys Pearson.
