Carlton Bierschwale


Carlton Aaron Bierschwale, 93, of Junction passed from this life into the arms of his Heavenly Father on December 26, 2019, at his ranch home at Segovia. Carlton and his wife of 67 years, Emily, had made that house a home for their entire marriage.

Carlton was born on January 16, 1926 on the family's ranch, at that time near the Moody Ranch in southern Kimble County, to Floyd M. and Hazel Mangold Bierschwale. In 1943 they moved to the current place at Segovia, where he ranched for the rest of his life, except for a Southern Pacific Navy stint during World War II. He was honorably discharged from his duty on June 5, 1946 in San Diego.

Buddy, as he was known to his father and early friends, graduated from Junction High School in 1943 and received a year's deferment from military duty while he built fence on the newly acquired ranch at Segovia. After his service in the Navy he came back to the ranch and raised registered Rambouillet sheep with his father, continuing that business until going to a commercial herd. In 1951 he met his life's partner, Emily Cammack and they were married on July 12, 1952. In 1953 they began adding to their family, with the birth of their first child. Three more children would be added to their family and to date, they are the proud parents of these four children, seven grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren.
Carlton and Emily were active community members, as she taught home-economics for 34 years, while he served on the County School Board, Rotary Club, and other civic duties in the community. Carlton was a ruling elder in First Presbyterian Church, Junction and served numerous terms of active duty. The most important thing in Carlton's life was his church and Christian faith, followed by his family and the ranch and community he lived in. He was a charter member of the round table at the Segovia Restaurant and was the last local surviving member. His times with those folks were remembered fondly by him and continue to be by his family.

Survivors include Paul (Debbie), Joann (Ken) Hedrick, Shirley (Don) Hegwer and Robert (Carol Henderson). Grandchildren include Aaron, Justin, Jack and Zackery Bierschwale, Elizabeth, Bradley and Dustin Hegwer, along with 11 great-grandchildren.
