Illinois, the son of John and Alice (Koontz) Virgin who have passed before
him, along with his brother, John Virgin. He was joined in marriage August

As a Huey helicopter pilot, Galen proudly served our country in the Army
during Vietnam. He was a manager of a grain elevator in Illinois for 25
years and then drove a tour bus for ten years. After retiring in the Branson
