Dr. Clint "Pete" Wilber

April 22, 1932 -- October 11, 2015

A Celebration of Life for Dr. Clint (Pete) A. Wilber, 83, of Norfolk was held at 10:00 a.m. Saturday, October 17, 2015 at Grace Lutheran Church.

While growing up in Lake Andes, South Dakota, Pete made up his mind to not become a farmer and set his sights on a career more challenging. He was born during the 'Dust Bowl" years on April 22, 1932 to Clint A. and Maude (Verner) Wilber. He graduated from Lake Andes High and then enlisted in the Army where he served two years in Germany. Upon returning home he enrolled at Creighton University where he received his under graduate and graduate degree in Dentistry. He married Janice Lock in 1959 and had five children, Anne, Julie, Greg, Emily and Molly.

He practiced dentistry near 50 years in Norfolk and besides his soul mate, Norma jean Schulz, whom he married June 7,1985, his next love and devotion was to his dental patients, followed closely by his champion German Short Hair dogs and his Tennessee Walking horses.

Pete won numerous awards with his dogs, twice being runner up as a National Amateur Champion. He was a member of the Sioux City Ring Neck Club, and the German Short Hair Pointer Club of Nebraska from Omaha. While attending Creighton dental school Pete worked at the Nebraska School for the Deaf. He was a charter member of the Norfolk Catholic schools Foundation and also a charter member of the Lutheran High Northeast Foundation.

He is survived by his beloved wife, five children, nine grandchildren, 2 Step Children, 4 step grandchildren, one foster step daughter and 4 foster step grandchildren.

Home for Funerals handled his funeral arrangements.
