Page 2 Richard D. Wenberg TEMPLE, Texas - Richard Dean Wenberg, 8 l, of Belton, Texas, departed this life peacefully in his home on April 30, 2014, after a bat- tle with lung cancer. He was born in Beach on Dec. 18, 1932, to the late Howard and Margaret Wenberg. During his early years on his fam- ily's homestead farm in western North Dakota, he developed a strong work ethic and a lifelong passion for agriculture. He served in the Army from 1954-56, including time sta- tioned in Germany. He graduated from North Dakota State University (NDSU) in 1957 with a degree in agricultural engineering. In 1965, he met Mary Fockler while working in Morgantown, W.V. They were married later that year and embarked on a wonderful journey together that lasted more than 48 years. He was employed by the USDA Soil Conservation Service for 35 years as a professional engi- neer and worked in several locations across the country and abroad. He was highly regarded by many for his expertise in agricultural water man- agement. He loved North Dakota. Through his diligent efforts over the past few decades, his parents' homestead farm has remained in the family and con- tinues to be a model for production and sustainability. He took great pride in the success of NDSU's foot- ball team and thoroughly enjoyed at- tending their national championship games in 2012 and 2014. He cherished the friendships that resulted from being involved in his church and various social and pro- fessional organizations through the years. He had many hobbies includ- ing fishing and boating but his real joy was his family and especially working on projects with his grand- sons. He is survived by his wife, Mary; son, Brian Wenberg and his wife, Susan, and two grandsons, Jack and Cade, of Belton; daughter, Susan Wenberg, and her fiancre, David Keller, of northern Virginia; brother, Howard "Jack" Wenberg and his wife, Marilyn, of Lander, Wyo.; sis- ter, Faye Fuentes. of Colorado Springs, Colo.: and sister, Sharon Hummel, of Billings, Mont.
