Art was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma on August 11, 2015. Multiple myeloma is a blood cancer that develops in the bone marrow. In myeloma, normal antibody-producing plasma cells (a type of white blood cell) transform into malignant myeloma cells. These malignant cells crowd out and inhibit the production of normal blood cells and antibodies in the bone marrow. In addition, groups of myeloma cells cause other cells in the bone barrow to remove the solid part of the bone and often cause soft spots in the bone, which can lead to fractures and other complications. Other problems associated with myeloma can include anemia, infection, and decreased kidney function.
Art’s treatment has required him to make a temporary move to Houston as he prepares to undergo a Stem Cell Transplantation. This is a therapeutic procedure in which his own blood-producing stem cells are collected, stored, and infused back into him following high-dose chemotherapy in order to restore blood cell production.
A medical fund has been established at First National Bank, 729 W 7th Street, Spearman TX 79081. Donations may also be mailed to: Maestas Family, ℅ Missie Bates, 10 Glover Place, Spearman TX 79081.
Art and his wife Teresa live in Spearman. They have two sons, Art Maestas of Lubbock, Aaron and wife Cayla Maestas of Spearman, and Whitney Maestas of Lubbock; and two grandsons, Braeden and Baron, both of Lubbock.
Donations of any size or amount are appreciated. Hansford County and the entire area is full of amazing, caring people and on behalf of the Maestas family, we thank you! May the Lord bless you for thinking of others at this time of need.
Teresa and Art Maestas

Hansford County remains in shock after learning that David Truitt Johnson, 36, of Spearman, TX, died on County Road 18 west of Rocky Ford, CO at about 5:30 p.m. on September 13, 2010.
David, a pharmacist, and his wife, Sandi, purchased Gordonís Drug in September of 2003. He was very well liked and respected in his community. His wife and their five children, Steven, Carlee, Mattee, Suzee and Dixee, are and will remain in our thoughts and prayers. May God hold them in His arms and heal the sorrow that they feel and may time accomplish what no words can.
Funeral services for David Johnson will be at 11 a.m. on Saturday, September 18, 2010 at the Morse Baptist Church. Graveside services and interment will be at 4 p.m. at Hillcrest Cemetery in McLean, TX, under the direction of Boxwell Brothers Funeral Home of Spearman.
