According to Wikipedia, “Johnson was born in Mankato, Minnesota, the son of Jeanette Elizabeth and Dale Robert Johnson. His father was of Norwegian descent and his mother was of German ancestry.
“While growing up, Johnson delivered newspapers, worked as a caddy at a golf course, baled hay on his uncle’s dairy farm, and worked as a dishwasher in a restaurant.
“He attended the University of Minnesota while working full-time and graduated in 1977 with a degree in business and accounting. That year, he also married Jane, the daughter of the businessman Howard Curler, co-founder of Curwood Industries, now part of the multinational Bemis Company.”
