Robert (Bob) Leland Gnuse, age 78, of Arlington, NE, passed into Jesus’ arms April 23rd, 2021. His heart--full of construction blueprints, bowling strikes, bass choir parts, and quiet, helpful love--suddenly failed to keep up with his spirit.
Bob was a builder. Over his life, he constructed hundreds of homes, countless improvement projects, and a strong community of family & friendships. He lived out devotion to God by warm hospitality and skilled workmanship.
He was preceded in death by parents Ed and Meta (Scheer), brother Don, and brother-in-law Lee Mencke. He is survived by his loving wife of 57 Years, Ruth (Mencke); 4 sons, Douglas (LuAnne), Michael, David (Jennifer), and Matthew (Kris); 2 brothers, Gene (Clairice) and Al (Carol); brother-in-law Steve (Jaccie) Mencke; sister-in-law Lois Gnuse; 9 grandchildren, Amber Ward, Adam Houghtelling, Hope Ziegler, Aiden Gnuse, Samuel Gnuse, Reid Gnuse, Eliana Gnuse, Elijah Gnuse, and Ezekiel Gnuse; and 5 great-grandchildren, Chandler Ward, Makenzie Ward, Anghus Houghtelling, Remi Ziegler, and Fisher Ziegler.
Bob spent his life doing what he loved to the very last moment. He will be missed by bowling and golf leagues, St. Paul’s Lutheran Church boards, the Pathfinder Chorus, and all children fishing at Gnuse Pond.
