Laddie was born on September 21, 1938 at Sacred Heart Hospital in Yankton, SD to Joseph H. and Lillian (Adam) Rous.  He was baptized and confirmed at St. Wenceslaus Catholic Church in Tabor, SD.  He attended rural Cottonwood School #29 to the 8th grade and Springfield High School for one year.  He enlisted in the National Guard Springfield Unit in 1957 and was medically discharged in 1958.  He returned to the family farm where he continued to farm until his passing.

On June 2, 1966, he was united in marriage to Janice Potter at St. Leo Catholic Church in Tyndall, SD and to this union 3 children were born.  They lived on the family farm in the Tyndall area where they farmed and raised their family.

Laddie was a member of St. Wenceslaus Catholic Church and First Catholic Slovak Ladies Association.  He was a hard-working farmer, who instilled good work ethics to his children and grandchildren.  He enjoyed fishing and tractor pulls, but his true enjoyment was farming and feeding cattle.
