Henry Emil Weidenbach was born Sunday, June 10, 1923 at Olivet, South Dakota to Emil and Emma (Gall) Weidenbach. He graduated from the 8th grade on June 1, 1938. Henry was united in marriage to Gladys Baltzer on August 14, 1949 at the First Congregational Church in Kaylor. Together they made their home on the family farm near Olivet in Hutchinson County where Henry diligently farmed the land until his retirement and subsequent move to Scotland. He loved sports, but was especially devoted to cheering on Scotland teams. On June 25, 2006, Henry was named Scotland Sports Day Honoree in grateful recognition for his many years of outstanding service and dedication to Scotland baseball. He was a member of the Rotary Club of Scotland for over 20 years and on June 12, 2013, was once again acknowledged with an honorary membership. He also served his community as a member of church, school, township, and telephone boards.
