Dillard H. Wied passed away on Thursday, October 24, 2019 at a nursing home in Hebbronville, Texas at the age of 92. He was born on December 24, 1926 to Arthur Leo Wied and Annie Schuh Wied in Crestonio, Texas. He was a Director for the First National Bank for 38 years, a Texas Veteran's of Foreign Wars Member and a Jim Wells County Farm Bureau Member.

As a young man, he grew up on the family homestead where he milked cows, farmed, and took care of livestock. After graduating from school, he continued to farm and ranch until he entered the United States Army where he proudly and honorably served. After coming home from the service, he partnered with his brother, Perry and they continued to work in the farm and ranch industry. He also had a welding shop that he was very proud of. He later decided to quit farming and ranching as his full time career and began to work for Schlumberger on a logging truck. After some years, Dillard resigned from Schlumberger to start his own water well drilling and service company.

In February of 1971, he opened Wied Hardware, Inc and ran his business until his retirement. Afterwards, he continued to ranch and give his children "expert" advice, wanted or not.

My husband Joe always asked me about Mr. Wied when I’d go to Hebbronville. Joe and Mr. Wied played golf together when Joe would go to Hebbronville. They shared many stories including stories of the Army since they both served their country. We have fond memories of him. May the Lord have him in his glory. He was a good man!!! Our deepest condolences to all the family.

I have fond memories of visiting Dillard at the hardware store when we visited Mother and Daddy at the ranch. He was always joyful and welcoming. Daddy (Tom Stroman) always relied on Dillard to give him expert advice with any needs. I loved visits with Louise and Dillard at their beautiful ranch home. Dillard always seemed delighted to have company and share one of Louise's incredible meals. Dillard will be missed by many.
