C.B. was born August 13, 1925, on the family farm in Newton County, MS to Sidney George Strebeck and Ruth Johnson Strebeck. When C.B. was 8, he moved with his family to Artesia, NM. Soon after C.B. graduated from Artesia High, his father passed away and he took over operating the farm with a team of horses. In 1945 he and his mother moved to Portales where he bought his first farm in the Bethel Community, and met the love of his life, Marjorie Marie Cooper. They were married January 30, 1949 at First Methodist Church in Portales, NM. They began raising their 5 children in Bethel, and later in Causey, NM. In 1958 they moved their family to Clovis where he continued to farm and operated several businesses, including Wash-O-Mat Laundries. In 1984, he and Marjorie moved to their SE Kansas ranch. In 1991, they moved back to Clovis where they continued to farm and ranch until his late 80s.
