The float was pulled by a 1953 8N Ford tractor owned by Hubert Simonsen. Reinke lives childhood dream An inventor at heart and a legend in the agriculture industry, Richard Reinke, found the Reinke Manufac- turing, Deshler, is observing his 80th birthday in June. A native Nebraskan, Mr. Reinke is considered by many to be a father of modem-day mechanized irrigation. His many product innovations have be- come standards in the industry. He designed the world's first reversible, electric-gear-drive center pivot system and patented the first V-jack truss de- sign. Born in 1922, Mr. Reinke grew up on a 480-acre family farm near Byron. "Our farm operation was kind of primitive," he said. "Except for the plowing, everything was done by horse or manpower because we had no elec- tricity. I picked 125 acres of corn by hand by myself with a big old mule and a little black horse." A self-taught engineer and drafts- man, Reinke has an eighth grade edu- cation. At a young age, Reinke and his older brothers made a mechanized The 50-year reunion class of Superior High School won the best decorated alumni entry at the Lady Vestey Festival Parade in Superior, Saturday.

"But ours was perfectwe never had to take plow blades to town to get sharp- ened." Growing up, Reinke learned valu- able lessons in mechanics and math- ematics by watching his father Work in the family's machine shop. "My father was a skilled mechanic and could take metal and work it into anything he wanted," he said. "In order to figure out trusses, I would make wooden trusses at the machine shop. I'd use weights for scale and I'd check the different angles until I finally got the hang of geometry." The trip hammer fueled inventions, countless hours in the shop and an influential role model all helped shape Reinke's future in construction, engi- neering and irrigation. "I have a knack for mechanics and architecture so I did my own experi- ment and that's how it all started," Reinke said."I developed from scratch the pivot we have today." During his experiment, Reinke de- signed the world's first fully reversible mechanized center pivot system with rubber tires and a bowstring truss de-, sign. Over the next 30 years, Reinke helped the company achieve 30 world- wide patents and many industry firsts, including the accomplishment of of- fering a stainless steel mainline pivot. The company has grown from a handful of employees in its inception in 1954 to more than 300 employees t an 80-acre manufacturing facili!y west of Deshter. Now retired, Reinke still occas!;,:- ally visits the plant to tinker around the shop. "I was gifted with a fertile mind for inventions," he said. "Give me a piece of machinery and I can improve it. I enjoy observing the simple things that can gwe you a clue as to a great solu- tion. That's what I've built my busi- ness on." Reinke and his wife, Edna, have been married for 55 years. They have five grown children and 16 grandchiL dren. Reinke is fluent in three languages. In 1982, he was honored by the Ne- braska Hall of Agricultural Achieve- ment for pioneering innovations in center pivot irrigation. In the early 1970s Reinke also m- vented the Reinke Aluminum Shake Shingle, available in uumerousolors for residential and commercial,, rool and known for its unique desi,, and durability. Along with mechanized imtion systems, the company also manufac- ttrres over-the-road trailer and clrassis equipment, known for its lightwcizhL but strong and durable design wilh a variety of options.
