Theodore G. Sherbeck was born on April 14, 1939, in Ansley, Nebraska to Clarence “Jack” Sherbeck and B. Loene (Lanphear) Sherbeck.  He attended Ansley Public Schools through high school graduating in 1957.  He went on to graduate in 1961 from Kearney State Teachers College with a degree in mathematics.  He felt a passion to learn more about agriculture and soils and continued on to Purdue University, Lafayette, Indiana and received an MS in 1963 and completed his PhD in Agronomy the summer of 1967.

Ted met Carol Dase of Wheatfield, Indiana while attending Purdue University.  They were married on June 1, 1963 and stayed in Indiana while Ted finished his PhD.  In 1967 they moved to Ansley and remained there for the next 54 years working on the family farm and raising four children.

He loved science and research and applied it to farm work in the manner he planted crops and grew cattle.  Ted placed many cattle in feeding and carcass trials often winning the rate of gain.  He strived to improve the herd by using those outcomes to improve genetics in the herd.  Ted served eight years on the Nebraska Beef Council Board of Directors and used his love of research on the Nutrition Research Committee for the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association.

Over time, he participated in the Elks Lodge 1688 and held several leadership positions including Exalted Ruler twice.  He continued with service to the organization by being the State Chairman of the Veterans Hide Program which gathers deer hides to be made into gloves for veterans.

He is survived by his wife of 58 years Carol (Dase) Sherbeck; four children: Julie (Rex) Moore of Aurora, CO; Thomas (Michaela) Sherbeck of Lincoln, NE; Richard Sherbeck, of Ansley, NE; Laura (Garrod) Fernau of Ansley, NE; eight grandchildren: William and Ethan Moore; Katlyn (Justin) Notter, Samantha, Madisen, and Travis Sherbeck; Garrison and Lauren Fernau; and great-grandson Kannon Notter. He is also survived by his brother Michael (Kay) Sherbeck of Lincoln, NE.

He was preceded in death by his parents.
