Emil "Buck" J. Galetich was united in marriage to June B. Williams in 1946. They have three daughters: Teresa A. Henry, Debbie L. Grow, and Gail M. Longhenry.

Emil was born in High Bridge and moved to Madrid when he was a boy. In 1940, he joined the Army and served in World War II in the 634th Tank Destroyer Batallion. In 1946, Buck went into construction work, and in 1951, he began work for the John Deere Company in Ankeny, where he was employed until his retirement in 1981.

Emil has also been an active member of the Madrid V.F.W. Post No. 5060 and served as a city council member for two years.

June was born near Luther and moved to Madrid in 1939, after the death of her father, Asa Williams. Graduating from Madrid High School and working in her mother's (Lucy Sturdivant Williams) cafe kept her busy.

In 1972, June began work for United Telephone Company, where she was employed until it closed in 1982.

June has been active in the Madrid Church of Christ and the Camp Fire Program when her daughters were growing up.
