John Gette was born September 15, 1905 in Russia and immigrated to the United States about 1922.

Leaving Russia was not easy for John as he had just turned 18.  But, with the help of the family, he was able to depart with his mother and sisters to join his father in North Dakota.

He married Mary Jagello on April 14, 1916 in Deluth, Minnesota and they had four children: John Jr., Eleanor (Ellie), James and David.

John Gette died on July 10, 1991.
