The Trask Family traces its ancestry back to the 1700s in Rochester, Vermont.

"I had four brothers and sisters. Aside from that, growing up in Rochester, a town of less than 600 people when I was there, 20 kids in my graduating high school class. Back then, I was the only fortunate one who went on to college."

"Three of my buddies were farmers, so I grew up almost on a farm even though I didn’t live on a farm. Until I moved to Middlebury, going out of town would make the local newspaper. You know if we went to Rutland to the movies we’d be in the paper."

"I served as a Page Boy for the Vermont Senate during my sophomore year of High School. It was an honor, you know. I had to take off the spring semester of High School to do it."
