      > The Sun, San Bernardino, CA - February 1, 2005
      > Similar to the popular conception of a cowboy, RICHARD “DICK” W. WEENING
      > spent his formative years busting broncos and roping calves, and grew up
      > to own his own ranch in Mariposa, complete with cattle and quarter horses.
      > Weening, a longtime San Bernardino resident, died of lung cancer on
      > January 29 at his ranch in Mariposa. He was 78. He was born on April 16,
      > 1926 in Ureterp, Holland and immigrated to San Bernardino with his parents
      > in 1943. He graduated from San Bernardino High School in 1943. Weening
      > spent much of his youth at the local rodeos, wrestling steer, riding
      > broncos and taming wild bulls.
      > Shortly after high school, he entered the family business and began
      > working for his father Sam at the White Rose Diary on Waterman Avenue.
      > After a number of years at the dairy, Weening took over for his father.
      > “The White Rose Dairy was probably one of the largest dairies at the
      > time,” said his son, Richard W. Weening, Jr., of Milwaukee, WI. “It
      > stuck around for quite a while and stayed open until at least the early
      > 1970s.”
      > Following his work at the dairy, he dabbled in raising beef cattle, and
      > owned and operated a small-scale ranch in Mariposa. In addition to
      > cattle, Weening bred quarter horses, a number of which went on to become
      > famous racing horses. “A horse named Miss Cinders was pretty well known
      > in the 1950s,” Richard Weening Jr., said. “He also bred some more recent
      > prominent prize-winning race horses, including Tijuana Taxi and Intimate
      > Affair.”
      > Other survivors include wife Charlyn Boothe of Mariposa; sons Martin A.
      > Weening of Calabasas, CA and Richard Jr. of Milwaukee; two stepsons Todd
      > and Robb Allmond; and seven grandchildren. He insisted services not be
      > held in his memory and requested that his ashes be scattered throughout
      > the corrals of his ranch in Mariposa. In lieu of flowers, donations may
      > be made to Friends of Hospice, P. O. Box 216, Mariposa, CA 95338.
