Robert "Bob" Wren Trosper, age 51 years old, passed away at the CHI Good Samaritan Hospital, Kearney, Nebraska, Sunday, June 7, 2020. Bob was born to Donna Doreen Mills and Wren Leo Trosper at the Cambridge Memorial Hospital on July 25, 1968. Bob graduated in 1987 with 17 classmates at Cambridge High School.
He worked at the Husky Filling Station until 1991. From February 18, 1991 through 2004, Bob worked as a mechanic for Bernie Jones GMC. On March 4, 2004 Bob bought out Clint and Ruth Bridges’ business and it gave him a lot of pride to think he could print a t-shirt, make vinyl truck signs for many businesses, and then he moved his shop from McCook to Arapahoe in 2007. He bought an embroidery machine and added a laser engraver which brought him more business to snowbirds. In 2018 Bob moved his shop once again to Cambridge to a house. He always said his talent was God’s gift. Bob was a member of the First United Methodist Church in Arapahoe.
He loved farm animals and loved to tease them and then he would sit and laugh. He never wanted to live anywhere but on the farm. Bob belonged to the Holbrook Lions Club as secretary and put the sale bills together. He always looked forward to doing things for the club.
His mother, Donna, died in 2001, three aunts: Geneva Fuller, Mildred Farr and Roberta Menges and two uncles, Gary and Fred Trosper.
He leaves to mourn his father, Wren and stepmother, Luella Trosper, of Arapahoe, NE; two sisters, Kathy and Doreen Trosper, both of Cambridge, NE; stepsister, Vicki (Steve) Daigle, of Glendale, AZ; and one stepbrother, Richard (Valerie) Bond, of Cambridge.
