Paul O. Hartung
August 22, 1941 - May 30, 2018

Paul O. Hartung, age 76 of Fremont
died Wednesday May 30, 2018 at Nye Legacy, Fremont.

Paul was born August 22, 1941 in Fremont to Obert and Helen (Mahel) Hartung. He was raised on the farm west of Fremont and attended BeeBee School District 63. Paul had been a member of the Saddle & Spurs 4-H Club.

He graduated from Fremont High in 1959 and served in the National Guard for 2 years. He worked at Western Electric, retiring after 36 1/2 years and then he had a part time job with Taylor & Martin Auctioneers.

Paul married Patricia Gerdes on June 29, 1974 at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Yutan. They resided in Yutan for several years before moving to Fremont and Lake Ventura in December 1978, where they were still living. Paul enjoyed bowling and was Bowler of the Year in 1972-73 and received many other bowling awards throughout the years. He was a Husker fan from the word GO, enjoying many season tickets to several Husker sports. His interest in old cars grew fast. His first of many old cars was a 1954 Chevy. His favorite was a 1957 black Chevy, but his red 1930 Chevy got the most conversation. He spent many hours restoring these vehicles. Other interests included serving on the church council and the church mowing crew, the lake and boating, and having a lot of company. He took great pride in caring for his lawn. Dancing was also a love of his as well as going on trips with friends. He enjoyed family gatherings and summer steak fries and Christmas.

In addition to his wife Pat, he is survived by daughter Kimberley Polen of Texas, granddaughters Brandis (Read) Cowern of Des Moines, Iowa and Kylee Polen of Fremont, 3 great grandchildren, Calvin, Genevieve, and Todd, sister-in-law Norma Hartung, nieces LeAnn Karmann, Shara Wagner, and nephew Kent Hartung, and many cousins. He will also be greatly missed by his dog ‘KC’ who had a special seat in the truck and in Paul’s heart.

The funeral service will be 11 AM Tuesday at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Yutan. Following the lunch, the committal will be in Memorial Cemetery, Fremont. Visitation will be at the Ludvigsen Mortuary Chapel, Fremont, Monday from 3 to 7 PM with the family present 5 to 7 PM. Memorials are suggested to his church and Dodge County Humane Society.

Raymond Warren notified us of his brothers passing.  Paul worked in plant trades and productions and retired from the Omaha Works on 12-31-2005 with 33 years of service.
Paul D. Warren
Age 84 of Blair, passed away Tuesday, May 29, 2018 at Crowell Home in Blair. Funeral services will be held Friday, June 1, 2018 at 10:30 AM at Country Bible Church in Blair. Luncheon will follow. Graveside services will be held at the Tekamah Cemetery at 1 PM. Visitation will be held Thursday, May 31 beginning at 4 PM with family receiving friends from 6 to 8 PM at Campbell Aman Funeral Home.

Paul grew up in rural Burt County near Decatur, Nebraska as one of six children born to George and Gertrude (Thomas) Warren. As with most depression era farm families, life would be considered tough by today’s standards. But life was full of love, hard work and games/competitions between siblings and friends. Paul attended Elm Creek Country School in rural Burt County and graduated from Decatur High School in 1950.

Paul married Beverly Jean Wedgewood of Tekamah, NE at a service in Council Bluffs, IA on July 12, 1954. Their marriage blessed them with 3 children; Rhonda (Steve) Baker of Spartanburg, South Carolina; Jeff (Julene) Warren of Blair, NE; and Joe (fiancée Roxane Bukowski) Warren of San Diego, CA. Grandchildren include Emily Kelley and Jackie (Jake) Foster, both of Spartanburg, South Carolina; Clay Warren of Blair, Nebraska and Kane (fiancée Breanne Magill) Warren of Tekamah, Nebraska. Great grandchildren Jacob and Kayelee Foster.

Paul was a member of Country Bible Church in Blair and faithfully served our Lord as a witness of his deep founded faith and as a role model through the Christian love he showed for others during his life. Paul was baptized into a life with Christ at First Baptist Church in Tekamah, NE. He knew that his life on earth was a precursor to an eternity in Heaven.

Paul spent the majority of his work life employed in various capacities at Western Electric/AT&T in Omaha. Through the years, many life-long friendships were formed through daily carpools to and from Blair and work. Paul retired from what had become Lucent Technologies in 1992 after 33 years, at age 59. For several years after retirement Paul worked for the Blair Golf Course mowing fairways and helping with course maintenance and then settled into what became a long “2nd career” as a delivery driver/dispatcher for Woodhouse Ford/Chrysler/Plymouth. He reluctantly gave up his driving duties in 2011 at the age of 78. He truly loved driving for Woodhouse and hanging out with the other “Geezers”.

Paul was an avid competitor and sportsman. He loved the spirit of a good game…most any game. Whether baseball or football in his youth or slow pitch softball, bowling, horseshoes or just about anything that could be turned into a competition as an adult, he had the uncanny ability to know that games were played as an enjoyment of life. If he won today but lost tomorrow, there was always the next day to try again. Cards, puzzles and board games could be the foundation of a good competition.
Paul loved all things outdoors. From gardening and yard work to hunting and fishing he undertook all projects with the same endless energy. He could make almost any activity into a sport if you wanted to challenge him on who could plant the most tomatoes or who could catch the most or biggest fish.

Paul and brother Raymond were perennial Horseshoe Pitching Champions at the 4th of July celebration in Tekamah. Each year they would show up and complain about how little practice time they had leading up to the event, just before they were again crowned champions. Summers typically included an annual fishing trip to Minnesota, most often with Mary Lou, Wedge, Kelly and Jay. Paul and Beverly enjoyed a number of trips to Las Vegas over the years usually joined by Raymond and Ann or Bob and LaDonna or other family and friends.

Paul loved his desserts and could always find room for a cookie or a piece of cake but he especially loved ice cream. Any flavor, topping, cone, bowl or milk shake. When offered ice cream bars with his meals at Crowell he was most often known to say; “Probably should.”

Paul was preceded in death by parents, George and Gertrude (Thomas) Warren. Father and mother-in-law Roy and Mamie (Johnson) Wedgewood. Brothers Tom and Lloyd Warren. Sisters Joan Dorn and Mary Lou Wedgewood. Brother-in-laws Tony Lewis, John Dorn, Lyle Wedgewood, Larry Hennig, Jerry Miles, Merwin Georgeson and Harold (Wedge) Wedgewood. Also preceding Paul were sister-in-laws Ardie Hennig, Evelyn Miles and Doris Georgeson. Also noted in passing, cousin and very special life’s friend, Bob Warren.

Paul is survived by his wife Beverly, children Rhonda (Steve), Jeff (Julene) and Joe (Roxane). Grandchildren Emily, Jackie (Jake), Clay and Kane (Breanne). Great grandchildren Jacob and Kayelee. Brother Raymond (Ann) Warren. Sister-in-laws Joyce Lewis and Joan Wedgewood. 38 nieces and nephews. And special family friend, LaDona Warren.

Steve Miller notified us of the passing of Marcus "Mark" Kennedy from a post on the AT&T Facebook page. Mark retired from the Omaha Works on 1/13/1996 with 35 years of service.

Marcus W. Kennedy
10/14/1936 – 5/16/2018
Marcus Wayne Kennedy was born on October 14, 1936 in Enid, Oklahoma, unto the union of Waldo E. Kennedy and Gertrude Johnson Kennedy Hicks. He departed this life on May 16, 2018 at the Methodist Hospital, Omaha, Nebraska. He was preceded in death by his first wife Charlotte Kennedy, both parents, sister Elvira Hicks and daughter Corita Garrette Reynolds. Marcus was educated at St. Benedict School, Technical High School and Omaha University in Omaha, Nebraska.

Marcus was employed for several years with Rosen Novak Cadillac, Omaha Packinghouse and retired as a supervisor after 35 years at Western Electric, which subsequently became AT&T.

He lived a life replete with many hobbies and interests which included working on cars, gardening, yard landscaping, golfing, playing cards, cooking and grilling with his friends and family.

He was always excited about traveling; whether traveling by car or plane, he felt it to be educationally enriching and the experience brought much joy and happiness to his life. His white Chevy station wagon, which he loved, carpooled many friends and co-workers back and forward to work and in the process got banged around from his acts of kindness and generosity. Amazingly however, he used his beloved white chevy station wagon to crisscross the United States visiting family in Oklahoma, Disneyland in California, Niagara Falls and elsewhere.

You could always find him loading up his car to assist his children’s Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops, Baseball games/tournaments and stuffing every corner of any of his cars to move his children and grandchildren across the county to colleges, universities and away from home to seek new opportunities.

During his life of retirement Marcus Kennedy was a husband, father, uncle, brother in-law and best friend whose heart and home were like an empty bucket. His smiles and hugs were endless, and he always was available to hand them out even if you did not think you needed it.

Marcus leaves to cherish his wife Evelyn Faye Kennedy, daughter Marcia Kennedy, and son Charles Walker. Also, his daughters, Paulette Kennedy, Paula Kennedy (Alex), Wanda Kennedy, Angela Kennedy; son Wayne Kennedy (Gabrielle). Grandchildren Donatello Kennedy, Jahbari Kennedy and Kalen Ross plus a host of other relatives and friends.
