Arden Willis Lindberg was born to Alvin and Dorothy (Iverson) Lindberg in Paddock Township, Sebeka, Minnesota on October 4th, 1937. After four daughters they were so thrilled to have a son.

He was baptized and confirmed at Bethel Lutheran Church, Paddock Township. He served in the United States Army in 1957-58 based in Alaska.
Arden married Janet Logan on April 3, 1971 in Las Vegas. Three children were born to this union. He worked 42 years for several companies through out the U.S. doing water and sewer construction.
