Obituary

Obituary for Wesley LaVerne Dreher

Wesley LaVerne Dreher, 86


Wesley LaVerne Dreher, passed away on December 10, 2020 at the age of 86 in Wheatridge, Colorado. He was born on July 20, 1934 in Elwood, Nebraska to Orin and Rebecca Mae (Corder) Dreher. He graduated from Elwood High School in 1953 and attended Kearney State Teachers College. At college, he succeeded in many sports and met Mary Lee Weir. They were married June 6, 1955 and lived in Paxton, Nebraska until 1956 when they moved to Ogallala. Wes and Mary had three children in Ogallala: Mark (1956), Kent (1959), and Deborah (1962). While in Ogallala, Wes worked for OEMI in Quality Control. In July 1967, Wes and his family moved to Westminster, Colorado where he worked for Sundstrand Aviation. Later he transferred to Sundstrand Fluid and Handling in Arvada, where he retired in 2000. Wes and Mary also gained six grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren. Mary preceded Wes, passing away in November 2003.

Wes later met Alice Joan Schubert and they were married on February 21, 2005. The two of them immensely enjoyed traveling together and RVing. Wes is survived by his wife Jo, his children Mark, Kent, and Deborah. Wes' passion for family, woodworking, camping, hunting and sports lives on in his memory and surviving family members. His gentle and humble spirit shows as a great reminder as to what is truly important in life.

A memorial service will be held in Arvada and Wes will be buried in Paxton, Nebraska.

Due to the pandemic, the memorial service is restricted, but graveside service will be open to all.

I am so privileged to have known Wes, a man with such outstanding christian character. I will especially miss the birthday celebrations with ladder golf and carrot cake, Wes's favorite. My sincere condolences go out to Jo and the family, Mark, Kent, and Deb.
