Wesley Herber, was born July 6, 1925, in his family home northwest of Shattuck. He passed to rest Wednesday, February 21, 2018, at the Shattuck Nursing Center in Shattuck, Oklahoma.

Wes felt great pride in sharing his farming and ranching with his grandchildren during the summertime. He also enjoyed working for his church and church school where he served as a deacon and a school board member along with other responsibilities and positions.
