He graduated from Canadian High School in 1965, and attended West Texas State University. In the summer of 1966, Jerry traveled to Arizona to work on a ranch at Sierra Vista, AZ. In 1967 Jerry moved back to Canadian to go to work for the Tandy Ranch, until 1970, Jerry went to work for Wayne Cleveland, running a ranch north of Canadian. He also day-worked for John McMordie during this time. Later he went to work managing a ranch for Wallace, Keith, and Rick Locke in Miami. In 1992, Jerry moved to Rosebud, NM to manage and run a ranch for Ray Snead for about eight years. In the fall of 1999, Jerry moved back to Canadian and worked at the Canadian Feedyard. He helped his son-in-law run the Hobart Ranch as his health permitted. Needless to say, Jerry has been a cowboy his whole life and is still described by many,as a man of few words. He enjoyed reading American Indian history and has spent arrowheads, with a nice collection to speak of.  Jerry was preceded in death by his parents, Sam and Esther Krehbiel, two brothers, John and Steve Krehbiel.  Survivors include two daughters: Julie Osborne and husband Jeffrey of Amarillo, Krista Belk and husband Jamey of Canadian; a son, Frank Krehbiel and wife Lindsy of Canadian; five sisters, Sammie Flowers of Gage, OK, Daisy Bank of Salina, KS, Nancy Wheeler and husband John of Canadian, Carolyn Immel of Amarillo, and Virginia Hext and husband Bill of Canadian; one brother, Dell Krehbiel and wife Elise of Canadian; a sister-in-law, Susan Krehbiel of Canadian; seven grandchildren, Trae Dwyer-Krehbiel, Jace Belk, David Osborne, Bralee Crossland, Brooke Krehbiel, Autumn Osborne, and Brynne Krehbiel.  Memorial can be made to Hemphill County Hospice, or River Valley Pioneer Museum, 118 S. 2nd, Canadian, Texas 79014.
