Olen Garrett Weishuhn, loving spouse, father, Popo, and friend, went to be with the Lord at age 79 on October 7, 2011. Olen was born November 28, 1931 in Frelsburg, Texas to Jesse and Katherine (Braden) Weishuhn. In 1945, his family relocated to Wall, TX where he dedicated his life to his family, farming, and ranching. On November 17, 1954 he married the love of his life, Merline Michalewicz Weishuhn, in Olfen, TX, and they spent 57 beautiful years together, raising 5 children, 14 grandchildren, and one great grandson. He was an active member of St. Ambrose Catholic Church in Wall, and was a member of Knights of Columbus. Some of Olen's greatest joys in life were traveling to support his children and grandchildren in sporting events, dancing, spending mornings at the cotton gin with friends, and fishing every chance he could get. He will always be remembered for his jolly smile, the way he loved his family and friends, and his ability to make each and every person feel welcome as a part of his life. Olen was a man that lived life with zest and dedication until the end; this was evident through his receiving of the 2011 San Angelo Area Conservation Farmer of the Year.
