Nance marks 91st birthday

Red NanceAll friends and relatives of Albert “Red” Nance, of Redmond, are invited to help him celebrate his 91st birthday at a reception from 1-4 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 24, at the Terrebonne Grange at 8286 11th St., in Terrebonne, hosted by Phil Nance and Karen Slater.

Nance was born Aug. 25, 1922, in Grandview, Ore., and rode horseback to school as a boy. He had a 41-year career as a millworker, with 20 as a certified lumber grader. He also spent a lifetime in ranching and farming, including raising top quality registered quarter horses. When not working, he enjoys hunting and trapping.

He is known for his remarkable memory for bloodlines of horses, and Central Oregon history. He was also instrumental in starting the high school and junior high school rodeos in Redmond.

Friends say Nance is a man of great character who is a role model to his family and all who know him.

He and his wife Fran have three children, Stan Juetten and wife Sue of Ukiah, Calif., Phil Nance and wife LouAnn of Redmond, and Karen Slatter and husband Steven of Prineville; six grandchildren; and seven great-grandchildren.
