Roy Domek was born in 1910 to George Sr. and Pauline Domek, on their farm in Corwin Township, in the Ypsilanti community of Stutsman County, North Dakota.
Dorothy Clemens was raised on a farm in Lenton Township. She and Roy Domek were married in 1931.
They lived on a farm four miles west and one mile south of Montpelier until 1937, when they moved to Salem, Oregon. They returned to Montpelier a year later, when Roy became the bulk operator for Standard Oil Company, a job that he held for about ten years, when he went into farming fulltime.
They retired from farming in 1975, but continued to reside in Montpelier. They were the parents of four daughters: Phyllis, Arlyss, Marie, and Gladys.
Dorothy Domek died in 1978. Roy later married Agnes Halsted Hansted, and was living with her in Montpelier in 1982, when the Ypsilanti Community Centennial Book was published.
