Notes for J

OHN CHESTER "CHET" MERCER:

John Chester "Chet" Mercer, Obituary, Northern Wyoming Daily News, Worland, Wyoming, Thur. Sept. 25, 2008, page 2.

GREYBULL --- Well known as Chet, John Chester Mercer, 94, of Hyattville, passed away on Tuesday, Sept. 23, 2008.

He was born to Asa and Stella (Gardner) Mercer at the Mercer Ranch home near Hyattville on Nov. 27, 1913. He received his early schooling at the Mercer School near Hyattville and graduated from high school in Basin. The ranch became his base in life, and he left only for brief periods other than during his service in the United States Navy.

He married Martha Marguerite Ziesman on Jan. 1, 1938. They made the ranch their home, dedicating their lives to building a successful ranching operation and raising a family.

As a young child, Chet became a avid fisherman and enjoyed catching trout whenever and wherever time allowed and a good stream was available. Always most comfortable in the outdoors, he became recognized throughout the area for his exceptional expertise at trapping and hunting. He learned the "language" of wildlife and spent his happiest hours meeting the challenges found there. His efforts were generally directed at problematic coyotes, but he pursued mountain lions, foxes, beavers, bobcats, elk and deer.

Education and community service were an important part of Chet's life. He served on the Manderson-Hyattville School Board and on boards and committees of organizations dedicated to assisting livestock producers. He was a member of the Wyoming Wool Growers and the Wyoming Stock Growers associations. He served on the Wyoming BLM Board and the Predatory Animal Control Board. He was proud of his induction into the Targhee Hall of Fame for sheep growers.

He was preceded in death by his parents Asa and Stella Mercer; two brothers Stephen and Leslie; and sister Pauline McKone Sievers.

Chet is survived by his wife Martha of Hyattville; two daughters Carolyn (Richard) Kelsey of Loganville, Wisc. and Shirley (Brad) Brown of Scottsdale, Ariz.; grandson Doug Brown of Newport Beach, Calif.; two nieces and one nephew.

A viewing will be held at the Atwood Family Chapel in Basin, Wyo. on Thursday, Sept. 25 from 1-4 p.m. at the United Methodist Church in Basin on Friday, Sept. 26 a half-hour prior to the service.

Funeral services will be held at the United Methodist Church in Basin on Friday, Sept. 26 at 10 a.m. with Reverend Jack Preston officiating.

Burial will follow at the Mount View Cemetery in Basin.

Friends, neighbors and relatives are invited to a luncheon at the United Methodist Church in Basin after the burial to greet the family.

A memorial fund has been established at Security State Bank, P.O. Box 531, Basin, WY 82410 with proceeds going to the Hyattville Community Center.

Atwood Family Funeral Directors, Inc. of Basin-Greybull is in charge of arrangements.
