Rector, Dale
Dale Rector - Pueblo Chieftain - November 4, 2004 - Dale Rector Real Estate Industry Loses Innovative Champion R. Dale Rector, respected throughout the real estate industry for his courage and commitment to creating a better system for top producing professionals, has passed away at the age of 84. Founder of Realty Executives International, Rector's much-lauded real estate career spanned nearly half a century. In the mid 1960s, Rector recognized that the status quo was not working and he sought to change and improve the business of selling real estate. He succeeded in his quest. Although many of his peers did not initially accept his ideas for what was then a controversial "100 percent commission concept," the program not only succeeded, but went on to revolutionize the real estate industry. In 2003, Rector was recognized by Realtor Magazine as one of the industry's 25 most influential professionals. He routinely received standing ovations whenever he appeared at one of his company's events-first by the hundreds and, more recently, the more than ten thousand-executives whose professional lives he had benefited. Unfortunately, his last battle was against cancer. Today, the company, and the industry, mourns the loss of one of their most significant champions, a father of four and husband of June Rector for 54 years. Dale was born on May 21, 1920 in Pueblo, Colorado to Arlie and Pearl Rector. He played oboe in the Pueblo Symphony while in high school and later played saxophone and clarinet in a local band. Dale graduated in 1942 from the University of Colorado with a degree in chemistry. Dale worked as a chemist at ALCOA in Vancouver, Washington during World War II. He then joined his parents in their business, Rector Food Products, in Pueblo, Colorado. He served as President of the Scottsdale Rotary Club in 1976-1977 and was Rotary District Governor in 1979-1980. Rector, who began his real estate career in 1953 in his native Pueblo, Colorado, and founded Realty Executives in Scottsdale, Arizona in 1965, was known to be an innovator and a soft-spoken champion of real estate professionals industry-wide. Within 25 years, his 100 percent concept had emerged as an industry philosophy embraced by nearly one-quarter of all Realtors throughout the U.S. Further, Realty Executives has, for nearly 40 years, been recognized as metropolitan Phoenix's largest real estate company with a roster of some 1,500 executives. Realty Executives International has also received acclaim as one of the fastest growing franchise companies in the nation. Worldwide, 20 countries are associated with the Realty Executives system. Rector was never flashy, nor self-promoting; rather, his philosophy and his efforts were directed toward making his industry better for those who devoted their professions to it. His memory will no doubt be cherished by hundreds of thousands of Realtors across the globe whose lives are better today because of his vision and strength, and by the countless people who knew the sincerity and warmth of his friendship and respect. He continued to sell real estate in Arizona until he was 80 years old, when he turned his relentless energy to oil and watercolor painting and helping his company raise money to support the families assisted by Habitat for Humanity International. Rector not only leaves behind his wife, June, but also children Janie Riels, Gary Rector and Jacki Konetzni, Rich Rector and Robyn Lee Dependahl, Becky and Sean McDaniel, as well as his eight grandchildren, Lt. Gregory Riels, Jason Dale Riels, Aurelia Leroux, Elliott Rector, Katy Rector, and Connor, Paige and Ryan McDaniel. A celebration of Dale's life will be held on Saturday, November 13th at 3:30 p.m. at Valley Presbyterian Church located at 6947 E. MacDonald Drive in Paradise Valley. Please visit for additional details. The family has requested that in lieu of flowers donations be made in his name to Habitat for Humanity International (c/o Homes from the Heart, 2398 E. Camelback Road, Suite 900, Phoenix, AZ 85016) and The Scottsdale Healthcare Foundation-Cancer Center Endowment.

She leaves three grandsons, Michael, Regan, and Alan, and two great-grandsons, Bobby and J.T.

Betty was an avid student, graduating at age 16 as valedictorian of her high school class, and was an honors student with a major in accounting at University of Denver. She did secretarial work to put herself through college. Betty was first a home maker but also held various other positions. The job that she enjoyed most was teaching at the Christian School on Ebeye Island while she and her family were living on Kwajalein in the Marshall Islands. There were few facilities for teaching on Ebeye, but friends at the University United Methodist Church in Las Cruces sent her books and supplies which greatly helped. After returning to Las Cruces she received many letters from the students whom she dearly loved. She also worked 11 years as administrative secretary at the University United Methodist Church, additional years as secretary for the Dean of the Graduate School at NMSU, and for H&R Block. Betty and Chuck enjoyed traveling to New Zealand, various islands in the western Pacific, England, and Chile. They also traveled and camped extensively in the western United States, including Alaska and Hawaii. Her wide range of interests included genealogy, music, reading, gardening, sewing, cats and gourmet cooking. Through her volunteer work and service to others, she illustrated that helping others was more important and spiritually fulfilling than much of what we do in this life. Betty supported and encouraged her children to develop their talents and wanted them to follow their hearts and enjoy life to its fullest. She also encouraged her grandsons, nieces, and nephews in their various interests and activities, frequently hosting them for summer vacations. A memorial service and celebration of her life will be held at University United Methodist Church on Saturday, April 29, 2006 at 3:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Alzheimer's Association of New Mexico.

Reeves, Arthur
Arthur Reeves - Mobridge Tribune - August 20, 2004 - Mobridge, SD - Throughout his long life Arthur Reeves was a horseman, especially quarter horses. He considered himself blessed to have owned some of the greatest horses known in this area, including Tom Baker, Bar Nothing Springer, Harmon King and Fer Tidy. Breeding horses with good heart, mind and ability was something he passed on to his children and grandchildren. A few years ago, Art (his wife Frankie always used his full name Arthur) was named SDQHA Breeder of the Year, and Art and Frankie were also awarded the coveted trophy as 50-Year AQHA Members and Breeders (actually more than 50). He was so proud of that statue that he wanted it placed on his headstone when he passed on. "We did everything together," Frankie recalls. "Horses were his first love - he had always been with horses. I never had to worry about losing him to another woman. I used to tell him I played second fiddle to horses." When asked, "What do you think makes a good horse?" Art quickly replied, "Thoroughbred type. They gotta do something. I showed halter in the morning and performance in the afternoon," showing the endurance of show horses a half century ago. "That's the kind of horse I started with." Today's Western pleasure horse earned no respect from him. "Most disgraceful looking thing I ever saw! It's not natural." Art and Frankie would have been married 69 years this August, but his health had begun to fail. His memory was razor sharp but he could no longer climb into his pickup to make regular checks on his beloved horses. He and Frankie both entered Beverly Healthcare Center in Mobridge where he died on Monday, July 19, 2004, at the age of 91. Art was born Dec. 13, 1912, in Lorraine, Texas, the youngest of Henry and Missouri Catherine (Allen) Reeves' 12 children. He grew up in Texas and at the age of 13 went to work for some big ranches in Texas working at the cow camps. When he was 17, he started riding the rough strings for these ranches. At the age of 18, he went to work for the Miller Ranches in Fluvanna and Gale, Texas. In the early 1930s, he started breaking horses for the Brownfield Ranch near Lubbock, Texas. Because it was the depression years, he also had a dance band to help make ends meet. He worked for Brownfield's for 10 years as a horse wrangler and during this time met Frankie, whose father was ranch foreman. Frankie recalls, "He was such a nice guy and with pretty blue eyes." They were married Aug. 3, 1935 in Lamesa, Texas. They lived on one of the divisions of the Brownfield ranch and he eventually took over his father-in-law's job as foreman. In 1943 they moved to Colorado where they ranched near Trinchera, later moving to Trinidad, Colo., where the early day South Dakota cattleman David MacKenzie had made his home. MacKenzie's son, Dode, who was killed in a LeBeau bar, is buried at Trinidad. Art came to South Dakota in 1948 in his search for better and cheaper grass. Returning to Frankie, he told her the Mobridge area had the best cow country he had ever seen. They came in 1949 to settle on a ranch they leased north of Dupree. They also ranched in the Eagle Butte and Faith area. In the late 1950s, they moved to a ranch southwest of Rawlins, Wyo., where he ran a ranch for his nephew. They moved to Rapid City in 1960 when Art worked as a brand inspector for the South Dakota Stockgrowers. In 1962 they moved to Sioux Falls where he was a brand inspector and in 1982 to Platte, then Corsica and Winner. They returned to ranching in 1987 at Bison, and then came to Mobridge in 1995. Art was also a walking history book when it came to quarter horse pedigrees. He loved to talk about bloodlines and what they could do and who raised them, and saved nearly every issue of the Quarter Horse Journal through the years. He received the Legacy ward AQHA in 1998, AQHA Horseman of the Year in 2001, and was a horse breeder for a total of 67 years. He was also a lifetime member of AQHA. Arthur owned the Grand Champ Stallions at Swift Current, Saskatchewan, in 1958, Post, Texas, in 1956, Hereford, Texas, in 1956, Lemmon, S.D., in 1959, and Sioux Falls in 1968. Survivors are his wife Frankie of Mobridge; two sons, Dean Reeves and wife Emma Lu and Gene "Buzz" Reeves and wife Faye, all of Armstrong County, S.D.; nine grandchildren, 22 great-grandchildren, four step-grandchildren and two step-great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents, seven brothers and four sisters. Funeral services for Arthur were held Thursday, July 22, at Kesling Funeral Home with the Rev. Edwin Coates officiating. Jim Hunt was eulogist. Special readings were by J'kye and Melaina Wientjes and Bill Omafray. Soloists were Samantha Reeves and Shirley Taton. Frankie Thompson provided background music. Casket bearers were Daun Reeves, Kevin Reeves, Jo Beth Swires, Kip Reeves, Melissa Wientjes, Jim Reeves, Bobbi Palczewski, Mary Reeves, Tom Reeves and Lyle Anderson. Burial was in the Timber Lake Cemetery under the direction of Kesling Funeral Home. A prayer service was held the preceding evening at the funeral home.

He spent over 47 years in the roofing equipment manufacturing business beginning with Blackwell Burner Company and Reeves Roofing Equipment Company in San Antonio, and since 1992 with Kirby Fiberglass in Pueblo West. Cleve enjoyed life and was optimistic about each day. His kindness and generosity were evident to all who knew him. He was a dedicated member of the Desert Hawk Men's Club at the Desert Hawk Golf Course in Pueblo West. Never playing a round of golf that he didn't enjoy-win or lose-he had many, many unforgettable games with long-time golfing partners and family members. He enjoyed every hunting trip with rifle, bow, or camera. His last hunting trip was with his favorite son-in-law, Steve. Cleve left the golf course just long enough to take Karen camping in the Colorado mountains, where they had many great adventures and quiet times together. The family had an unforgettable trip in Dec. to the mountains for dog sledding, skiing, and snowmobiling, which would become their last Christmas celebration with Cleve. Our family extends sincere gratitude for the kindness, caring, prayers, and support while efforts continue for Cleve's recovery from the Arkansas River in Little Rock. Our hearts are full of sadness, but his wonderful sense of humor and the love and caring he brought to so many will be with us always. The family may be contacted at P.O. Box 538, LaCoste, TX, 78039, or email: Memorial contributions in Cleve's name may be made to: Chaplain In the Workplace Ministries, Inc., P.O.
