A family is a legacy of love, a love that lasts forever.

Robert “Bob” Nenaber

Robert “Bob” Nenaber, age 61, of rural Iroquois, died Friday, March 20, 2009, after a short battle with cancer, at the Huron Regional Medical Center.  His funeral service was at 10 AM Wednesday, March 25, 2009, at the First United Methodist Church with the Rev. Donald Crippen officiating.  Burial was in the Maplewood Cemetery at rural Iroquois. 

Robert Nenaber was born March 14, 1948, at Huron, to Raymond and Doris (Abel) Nenaber.  He grew up in the Iroquois area and graduated from Iroquois High School. 

Bob served in the South Dakota National Guard for six years after a semester at South Dakota State University.  He married Sue Heath in 1976 at Huron, and raised her sons, Mike and Mark, in addition to their two sons, Scott and Travis “T.J.”. 

Bob did custom combining from 1969-1973 and farmed on the family farm with his brother Brian from the 1970s through the 1990s, including a custom feedlot cleaning business. He worked in the insurance field for a number of years, including serving as the regional coordinator for AFLAC in Hastings, Nebraska for five years.  However, his love was always in the outdoors as he worked on his farm, and together with his son, operated Nenaber Pheasant Ranch. 

In addition to hunting and fishing, Bob spent many hours coaching Little League baseball teams in Huron while his sons were growing up. 

His father and his son, Travis “T.J.” preceded him in death.

Grateful for having shared in his life are three sons, Scott Nenaber of Iroquois, Mike and his wife, Kari Coil of Belvidere, Illinois, and Mark Coil of Shakopee, Minnesota; one brother, Brian and his wife, Eileen Nenaber of Huron; his mother, Doris Nenaber of Huron; two grandchildren, Larissa and Jordon Coil of Belvidere, Illinois; two nieces, Amanda Nenaber of Denver, Colorado, Courtney Nenaber of Brookings; one nephew, Tyler Nenaber of Huron; and one great nephew, Landon Bult of Brookings.
