Steve you have left us with so many memories. From me playing the keyboard at your wedding to the camping trips to Storm Lake and Corning, to the many county Christmas parties and dances, to the times you and Pat helped us when we were building our house to the fun times with the Larsons. Oh and can't forget when Joe Appeman pulled the plug on your cable TV during a Husker game. As Brando says you can rest easy now Bammer. No worries no worries. Until we see ya on the other side, thanks for the memories and your humor. You and Pat can once again dance to The Neon Moon together. ❤️ Brando and Shirley Allen
Sorry for your loss Mike, Angie, and Amber. He was a good guy, I'm glad I knew him when I was growing up. It was fun playing catch football with him and Mike. I appreciated him coaching soccer when I was younger, he made an impact on me as a kid. I'll especially never forget him showing me how to tackle below the waist. Sorry again for your loss.

I have no idea how or what to start with but I do know how lost I am without you already. There is no other man on this earth that I love more or will have ever loved more than you Dad. You taught me to be a strong and an independent person. You and mom showed me how two people should treat and love one another. You were so intelligent it was scary. You were the only person I would go to for advice on how to fix anything.... and yes I do mean anything! If I had a bad day you always had some funny thing to say or comment even at the most inappropriate times and it sure made me smile. I will always have this void left in my heart and soul now that you are gone and there is absolutely no one here on this planet that can fill your shoes. I have so much more to say but I'm just so exhausted mentally. I love you so much, and I hope you never forget that. Remember that you have to Come see me....like I told you right before you left us. I will be waiting for your signs that you will leave for me. Please know how much you meant to not only to me, but to all of my children. Grandpa was the strongest and funniest man in their eyes, and they are truly heart broken you aren't with us any longer. I had already promised them the night before that I would take them to see grandpa that next day and they couldn't drive broke my heart to go home and tell them you passed away. I just sat in my car for a while dreading the thought of their faces when I walked in. They were waiting for me to take them to see you in the hospital. That part was the hardest thing I have ever had to do. They absolutely adored grandpa. We miss and love you and until we meet again keep visiting us. Tell mom we love and miss her too. Kiss her and love her up. I'm sure you both have so much to tell one another. I only wish I could be there to hear your conversation. This is not goodbye only see you later. Love you forever and always. Xoxo.
Dad I find it so hard to even function without you here. You were without a doubt the strongest,funniest,loving and sometimes crabbiest man I know but that's why I love you with ALL my heart. I now cherish every single moment I had with you. I really don't know how to move on without you but unfortunately I have to. I lost a huge part of my heart yesterday and the rest of me feels like it's crumbling. I just want to hear your voice one more time but I know that I can't. I want you to know that I am so happy to have had such a wonderful protective father like you. Those memories are forever with me and I will continue to share your life story with your grandkids. I love you Dad Rest easy and kiss mom for me.
Steven, my baby brother, I know right now our hearts are broken with the grief of losing you. I know that you are no longer suffering and are now happy and, once again, healthy. I hope you realized in life how loved you were. I can smile knowing that you are now with Patty once again and, of course, with Alan and Dale. You were genuinely the sweetest brother. Love you and will always miss you. Rest In Peace, Linda
You are my brother, my best friend and yes at times , my protector. You were larger than life and greater than death. You were always so much fun and always the life of the party. Our time left here on earth will be a lot more dull without you. I have so many memories of our childhood and life together and every single one of those memories will be forever cherished. You were, without a doubt, the BEST brother I could have ever hoped for. I know it will get better with time, but for now I find it hard to even breathe. Death may have separated us for now but I will keep you close in my heart until one day we meet again. Me loved you long time!!! Rest easy my brother. Love you always!!! AND GO BIG RED!!!

It was always a pleasure to be with you! I will love you forever and ever!! Rest In Peace by baby brother!! Love Sandi
