Charles Leonard Kapsner was born on August 22, 1929 in Whitetail, Montana to Alex and Anna (Shroud) Kapsner. He was confirmed in the Catholic faith and graduated from Princeton High School. After high school Chuck attended St. John’s for a Pre-Pharmacy degree and continued on to Creighton University in Omaha, graduating with highest honors.
He married Theresa Sliwicki on January 9, 1960 in St. Louis Park. They began their marriage living in Pine City for two years prior to moving to Princeton.
