Bob Stegeman

Bob Stegeman, age 89, of Sidney, Nebraska fell asleep in death on Friday, July 26, 2019 in Sidney. Per his long requested wish, no memorial services have been arranged. He will be inurned in Greenwood Cemetery next to his loving wife of many years. You may view Bob’s Book of Memories, leave condolences, photos and stories at Gehrig-Stitt Chapel & Cremation Service, LLC is in charge of Bob’s care and funeral arrangements.
Bob Stegeman was born on November 15, 1929 in Chappell, Nebraska to William Ray and Rose Agnes (Farrell) Stegeman, the youngest of four children.
In 1942 the family moved to a new home in Sidney, Nebraska. He continued his education in Sidney graduating from Sidney High School in 1948. In 1952 he met Marcelene Louise Thompson of Dalton, Nebraska and they married on November 2, 1953. They raised four children, twins Jerry Lynn and Jeannie Lynne, Jana Marie and Jill Agnes. They were married 41 years when Marcelene passed away in 1995.
During his youth he worked at various jobs including on his sister’s farm and at service stations in town. After high school he was employed locally with Minneapolis-Moline as a clerk and worked in the parts department, receiving company recognition for implementing an updated cataloging system. In 1951 he applied for and was accepted as a substitute Postal worker. Later he was employed full-time as a regular Postal employee, first as a letter carrier and later, for many years, as a postal clerk. He was asked to transfer to the North Platte post office but chose to take early retirement in 1977. He owned a janitorial service from 1969 to 2000 where he and family members cleaned a bank building and the local gas company.
In 1967 Bob and Marcelene began associating with the Sidney Congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses. Together they shared in conversations and Bible studies with numerous people in Cheyenne County until their deaths. He assisted many congregants and was known and deeply loved by fellow worshipers throughout the panhandle area and beyond. He enjoyed completing projects on his home and was known for his mild manner and kind heart.
He is survived by his children, Jerry (and Sandra) of Elizabethton, Tennessee, Jeannie (and Marty) Geiger of Castle Rock, Colorado, Jana Sander of North Battleford, Saskatchewan Canada, 11 grandchildren, 19
great-grandchildren and 3 great-great-grandchildren along with nieces and nephews.

Our deepest Sympathy to the Stegeman Family. We first met Bob and Marcelene in 1972 the best day of our lives. They began to study the Bible with my Husband and myself and help us become closer to our creator Jehovah God, for that we are eternally greatful. They became our dearest and closest friends. Can,t wait to see them again in the resurrection.

I always enjoyed my time spent with Uncle Bob. He was a gentle man and always made me feel welcome and loved. I will miss him as I miss Jill. I posted pictures of him with his his brother Bill, and sisters Mable and Alice and one with their Mother. The oldest one was in about 1931 when Bob was about 2, being held by my Mom Alice, along with Mable and Bill. Another phot taken in 1979 a few months before Grandma Rose died. The last picture was in 2013 at my Mom’s 100th birthday party. Bob would have been 84 and Bill was almost 90.
