John Gary, the son of Walter and Marian (Wickett) Borchert, was born August 26, 1938 in Minneapolis. As a young boy, he was an apprentice to his father as they started Borchert Mill & Lumber, which later became Chadderdon Lumber. He acquired many skills from an early age and also enjoyed time with his sister, Marilyn on the family farm. He attended Trinity Lutheran School and Church and graduated from Faribault High School and Mankato State University with a degree in Mechanical Drafting. He served six years in the U.S. Navy traveling the world. He then became a journeyman plumber and member of the Plumbers & Pipefitters Union.
