At the age of ninety-one, Alfred Gonzenbach, co-founder of Valley Queen Cheese, Milbank, South Dakota, still projects many of the qualities it took for _him as a young man of twenty-two to pack up, leave his home in Switzerland, and journey to America. He is witty, willing to tackle new adventures, unwilling to let old age's minor and major ailments get him down, and possesses an uncanny memory for dates and figures. He still has the twinkle in his eyes that helped him win the heart of Gertrude "Trudy" Hauser, his wife, over 58 years ago. The spirit that kept him going_ to never say "I quit!" is still burning bright within him. A proud, yet humble man, he says, "I did the best that I could with my life. Maybe I could have done better. I just did the best that I could."
