Oren grew up in Missouri and Nebraska. He graduated high school in Wahoo, Nebraska, in 1962. As a teenager he worked after school at various jobs including Timmermann Feedlot.
On December 20, 1963, he married Betty Vosler. Three children were born to this union. Betty passed away March 5, 2004.
After Oren and Betty were married, he worked for a grocery store in Ralston, Nebraska. When his grandfather’s health began to fail, he asked Oren to come back to Cabool, Missouri, and take over his farm. So Oren packed up his family and moved to the farm where he raised Appaloosa horses. He also worked other various jobs, from grocery stores to tire shops and gas stations.
After Betty’s passing, Oren was reacquainted with high school friend Alice (Snodgrass) Love, whom he had dated when they were in high school. They were married January 30, 2006, in Franklin, Nebraska.
