When he was 9 years old, Oren's parents decided to move from Princeton, MO to Kansas, in order to
find work. However, his father got sick during the trip and they ended up stopping in St. Joseph,
Missouri, after his father was diagnosed with bowel cancer. They returned to Princeton, where the
boys helped their mother wash and deliver laundry, but at age 17, Oren moved back to St. Joseph
with his brother Oliver, where they worked at a meat packing house.
