Robert (Bob) Clark Andrews was born on March 9, 1932 to Donald C. and Nina (Baker) Andrews on the family farm southwest of Holbrook. Bob grew up on the family farm with his three brothers and one sister. Bob attended country school at District 88 through eighth grade. He graduated from Holbrook High School in 1949. After attending the University of Nebraska for one year, Bob returned to the Holbrook area and began his lifelong farming occupation. Bob served in the U.S. Army from 1952 to 1954 in Washington State during the Korean War. After his honorable discharge, Bob returned to Holbrook to continue farming.

He married Connie Sayer on April 7, 1956 at Saint John the Baptist Catholic Church in Cambridge, Nebraska. To this union five children were born. Bob was a lifelong farmer in the Holbrook area. He served on the boards of the Holbrook, Edison, and Cambridge Co-Ops. He was a member of the Holbrook Lion’s Club, the Holbrook School Board and was a 4-H Leader. Bob was a dedicated blood donor, and in his lifetime he donated 20 gallons of blood. Bob served on the Frenchman Cambridge Irrigation District board of directors. For his steadfast representation of irrigation interests, Bob was honored with the Headgate Award at the 2005 Four States Irrigation Council conference.

Bob is survived by his five children: Diane (Jeff) Schultz of Cambridge; Clark (Dawn) Andrews of Holbrook; Barbara (Dean) Neels of Dunbar, Nebraska; Marilyn (Waid) Zysset of Hastings, and Keith Andrews of Cambridge.

Condolences to the Andrews family. Our thoughts and prayers go out to your whole family. Psalms 147:3 says God, "heals the broken hearted, and binds up their wounds." May God bring you comfort and peace.
