Stephen Wayne Pedigo

September 2, 1977 – January 19, 2022

Stephen Wayne Pedigo passed away peacefully on Wednesday January 19, 2022 after suffering a stroke on New Years Day.  He was 44 years old.

Stephen was born on September 2, 1977 in Aurora, Colorado to Ron and Linda Pedigo.  The son of a Chief Master Sergeant, he travelled the world with his family, eventually settling in Omaha, Nebraska.  It was here in 2005 that he met his wife, Laura.  The following year they welcomed their first son, Gavin Wayne Pedigo (age 15), and in 2009, Dillon Mikel Pedigo (age 12) was born.

Stephen was an avid football and soccer fan.  One of his favorite pastimes was to coach games from his living room. His favorite sports teams were the Tennessee Volunteers, the Denver Broncos, and Manchester United.  He loved to bowl and instilled this passion in both of his boys.  He was such a fun person to be around.  His laughter and silliness were contagious and he had an amazing ability to make friends wherever he went.

Stephen was preceded in death by his father, Ron Mason Pedigo and his stepmother, Carol Pedigo.  He is survived by his wife, Laura; their two sons, Gavin and Dillon; his mother, Linda Cox; sisters: Lisa Durham (Jeremiah), Tonya Price (Billy), Amanda Wright (John), and Ronda Gunter (Tommy); and many nieces and nephews.

A visitation is scheduled for Saturday, January 22, 2022, from 4pm to 6pm at the West Center Chapel. Please wear orange to celebrate Stephen’s love of Tennessee and Denver Broncos Football.

A Celebration of Life is planned for Sunday, January 23, 2022 from 4pm to 6pm at the Western Bowl, 4725 S. 131st Street, Omaha, NE 68137.

In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the education of his young sons, Gavin and Dillon.

    I am so sorry to see that Stephen passed….great picture you picked of him!
    … I know it was inevitable but nonetheless stings. Just know my thoughts are with you and the boys. Hold on to each other.
    Can’t make it to the services, almost my entire family is positive for Covid… So not leaving the house, but I’m there in spirit!
    Love you

    We are sorry to see Steve has passed. We loved bowling with him and his team. He always found Bob that evening to see how everything was going. Best wishes from us. Hope he’s wearing his soccer shirt. Will always miss his laugh.
