May 17, 1963 – October 5, 2023
Beloved husband, father, and “Pops.” Bob’s life was cut short unexpectedly, leaving a gaping hole in the hearts of those that knew and loved him.
He was born to Urban and June Neussendorfer in Bismarck, North Dakota, on May 17, 1963. The youngest of three boys, Bob relished growing up in Aberdeen, South Dakota, before the family moved to Omaha, Nebraska when he was 13. He graduated from Westside High School in 1981 and attended the University of Nebraska at Omaha. He met his wife, Stacie, in 1991 and swept her off her feet. They married five years later. Along with Bob’s daughter, Ashley, they added two children, Jack and Hailey to their family.
Bob spent his career in Real Estate and worked for CBSHOME, NP Dodge, and Berkshire Hathaway over the past 28 years. He particularly enjoyed working in new construction and was known for his love of old and mid-century modern house posts on Facebook. Working in Real Estate also afforded Bob the flexibility to be the “Dad Taxi” and help get his two youngest children, Jack and Hailey, to school each day for the past 21 years. He relished the time he could spend with his kids and was sad that his youngest, Hailey, had just gotten her driver’s license and would no longer need a ride every day.
Bob was a big guy with a presence that deceptively hid his kind and sensitive side.
Upon his passing, a dear friend wrote: “Bob Neussendorfer, 100% Nicest Guy Around. He was so genuine. If you mattered to him, you knew it. If something mattered to him, he said it. He adored his family and was a huge teddy bear of a guy and filled every room with his comforting love. He was also incredibly self-reflective and wasn’t afraid to poke fun at himself. He was always looking for ways to understand himself, his flaws, his successes and especially the things to be grateful for. Bob was that guy who put his whole self out there. He made it a point to remember what mattered to each of the people in his life, and when big things happened, he was there to sincerely cheer you on, or give a shoulder to cry on. I have lost a treasured friend who taught me a lot about what it means to be a good human being.”
Bob was preceded in death by his parents, Urban and June; brother, Paul; and infant, son Matthew. He is survived by wife, Stacie; daughter and son-in-law, Ashley and Tucker Beglin; son, Jack; daughter, Hailey; grandchildren: Archer, Avery, Sawyer and Sullivan Beglin; sister-in-law, Dawn Neussendorfer; nieces and nephews; and first wife, Denise Nelson (Randy). He will also be terribly missed by his dogs: Comet, Red and Daisy.
In lieu of flowers, memorials are requested to the family, Morning Star Lutheran Church or Least Of My Brethren.
Not one for formalities, Bob would have requested that you wear your favorite Husker or Chief’s gear, or something that simply brings you joy to his services.
