Early life Born at St. Mary's Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland on August 2, 1939, and baptized into the Christian Faith at Christ Lutheran Church in York, Pennsylvania, a month later. He resided in Baltimore until the family moved to Brooklyn Park. In 1956, his junior year of high school, he joined the US Army Reserves.

Charles Wise, a concert violinist, served in France in World War I as an infantry soldier. His great-grandmother Mina Belle Wise went West to Montana to do her Christian duty to teach for a year, and returned with stories of the "cowboys and the Indians". His great-aunt Mary Utz was a strong Christian, advocating Victorian virtues. Their impact was great and long-lasting. While in York he met one Union Civil War veteran, and also an old lady who saw Pickett's Charge at Gettysburg in 1863.
