Wayne Lee Schurr, 38, of Maywood died Sept. 8, 2011, at Denver Health Medical Center in Denver, Colo., as a result of injuries sustained in an automobile accident west of Maywood.

He was born on Oct. 30, 1972, at Gothenburg, Neb., to John L. and Kay (Schultheiss) Schurr of Farnam, Neb.

He graduated from Medicine Valley High School in 1991 at Curtis, Neb. He was active in 4-H, enjoyed livestock projects, and was on a nationally recognized livestock judging team.

He graduated from Central Missouri State University in Warrensburg, Mo., in 1995 with an Aviation Business Administration Degree. After college he moved to Maywood and became involved in the family farming and purebred cattle business in Maywood and Farnam where he established his own herd of purebred Angus and Charolais cattle.

He was well known for his mischievous smile and sense of humor. He had an uncanny sense of getting right to the point. He had a special way with animals and enjoyed all kinds. He also liked everything that had horsepower. He liked riding his Harley and being free, as well as all types of firearms. We will always remember that he was the same happy person everyday with a heart of gold and lots of patience.

He was a member of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Eustis, Neb; a life member of the American Angus Association, and the American Charolais Association; and a member of the pit crew on the Werkmeister Racing Team.
