Gale Wetherell was born in 1933 and moved with his family to Talkeetna, Alaska in 1935. They supported themselves by mining, running a freighting business, operating the roadhouse in Talkeetna, and trapping in the winter. Gale served in the US Army for two years at Fort Richardson in Anchorage, and then got a job as a brakeman with the Alaska Railroad. He went on to become a railroad conductor and worked for the Alaska Railroad for forty years.
