Stephen Robert Andersen - Morris Nilsen Funeral Chapel

January 1, 1944 - July 7, 2023

Stephen Robert Andersen

Early in the morning on July 7th, 2023, Steve left this sin-sick world to join our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in heaven. He is now singing in his rich bass voice in Heaven!

Steve was a New Year’s baby, born January 1st, 1944, to Robert and Helen Andersen. Steve's father, Robert, was in combat during World War II and did not see his son until he was 2 years old. At age 6, Steve accepted the Lord as his Savior and he loved and trusted the Lord the rest of his life.

In high school, Steve carried a New Testament in his shirt pocket which attracted the attention of his bride-to-be who had prayed for a Godly man. Steve and Mary were married on August 28th, 1965. They have 2 sons, John and Tom.

Steve served in the Navy reserves for 6 years. During his working career he was employed by Control Data, Minneapolis Leasing Co. National Computers Systems and Jack Links’s Beef Jerky Company.

He directed the church choir for 20 years in Omaha, Nebraska and enjoyed singing solos.

Preceded in death by his parents as well as his grandparents. Survived by wife, Mary; sons, John (Kathy) and Tom; grandchildren, Kendra, Jeffrey, Krista and Jonathan; sister, Karen Vegtel in California; as well as nephews and many cousins.
