“My goal in life? To someday be able to step back and see ‘Wehri Farms Mott ND’ in crisp, bold decals on the door of a semi. To know that what I am doing is feeding thousands. To wake up every morning and be proud of my accomplishments and excited to start the day. To be able to look around me and see for miles all the hard work I have put into my life. To have a loving wife that helped me raise beautiful children to who someday I can pass it all down to. Someday.” – Michael Wehri, 2013
At the age of only 19, Michael knew what he wanted out of life. He knew his responsibilities, and he was more than ready to undertake them… but as willing and eager as he was, Michael never got his someday. He had just finished double-checking the clearing of his equipment when the wind took a power line and caught the sprayer unnoticed.
Mike died on June 10, 2013.
On that day, the world lost a son, brother, nephew, friend, classmate…
the world lost a farmer.
