Thomas D. Guerin
Thomas D. Guerin passed away on August 25, 2004 in Roseburg, OR. Born in Oakland, CA, Guerin knew nothing about cattle and ranching when he took over his father's ranch in 1943. Guerin had a commercial beef cattle operation and in his early years operated a small feedlot and sold locker beef to the hospitals and nursing homes. Recently, after he fell and broke his hip, all he wanted was to get well so that he could get back to the ranch and see his cattle. Guerin also served on numerous boards pertaining to Agriculture and Agriculture Conservation. He is survived by his wife, Arlene, Myrtle Point, OR; daughters Cheryl (Bill), Tigard, OR, and Anne, Langlois, OR; step daughter, Dani Hanson, Myrtle Point; and several grandsons and two great-grandsons.
