Alfred Henry Schlottman was the eighth of nine children born to Henry, the owner of a general store, and his wife Sophie.

Growing up, Alfred and his brother Allen were often inseparable. Allen backed Alfred when he bought a oil station in Idaho, but they eventually sold it saying it was too much work.

Alfred then became a farmer, having bought land in a large irrigated valley near Fruitland, Idaho. He started by raising fruit and lettuce but when prices dropped, he switched to cattle and feed grains.

Alfred married Gladys Bedell and together they had one son named Kraig.

Alfred sold most of his land when he retired, keeping only the house and garage. He died in the spring of 1987, having almost reached the age of 90. He and Gladys are buried in Rosedale Memorial Gardens in Payette Idaho, not far from Alfred's parents.
