Bob grew up in Omaha, Nebraska at a house on Spaulding Street, playing baseball with his neighborhood friends near Fontenelle Park.  He attended Holy Name High School, graduating in 1969, before studying business at the University of Nebraska.

All who knew Bob will recall his always-happy demeanor and his easy smile.  He made many friends throughout his life and career, enjoyed jobs and activities that allowed him to spend time and share with others.  Bob remained active in his free time, playing in softball tournaments and hitting the golf course as much as he could.  An avid sports fan, he was a well-known contributor on online Husker boards under the handle ‘Nebyank’.

While Bob was blessed with many friends, his greatest joy came from being with his family.  He was preceded in death by his parents, Clifford and Mary Helen, as well as his brother, Johnny.  He is survived by his daughter, Jamee Stigge (Ben); grandsons, Grayson and Graham; sister, Joan (Kevin) Rooney; brother Richard Moody (Michele); and nieces and nephews: Aaron Moody (Becca), Brian Moody, Kari Moody, Sean Rooney, Caitlin Rooney; and partner, Linda Bird.  Bob regarded Linda’s children as his own extended family — Brandon Bird (Nicole), Jen Vavricek (Larry), and Erik Bird.

Bob’s recent years saw him taking full advantage of retirement, doing the things he loved most with the people he loved most — playing golf with his cousin, John Rhetmeyer, friend, Mike Walker, his brother, Richard, and Linda, going to Husker games with Jamee, Ben, Linda and Joan, concerts with Linda, and vacationing to the Smoky Mountains with Linda (where they were almost attacked by a bear and therefore, he made a ‘bear’acade).  His grandsons were the light of his life, and he loved sharing his interests with them–whether it just be spending time outdoors, or dancing while loudly whistling the theme music to the 1960s western Rawhide.

Although his friends and family grieve his unexpected departure, Bob spent his life making those around him feel happy and loved.  His warmth will be remembered by everyone who knew him.

    So sad to hear of Bob’s passing. We are currently in Missouri so we will not be able to be at his celebration service. But, please know we are keeping you all in our prayers.
