Robert “Bob” Arthur Steffen, of Ogilvie, Minnesota, passed away on November 10, 2020 at his home with his family by his side. He was 79 years old.
Bob was born April 22, 1941 in Fairmont, Minnesota to Henry and Sophia (Broderson) Steffen. At the age of 8, the family moved up to Ogilvie, to the present day farm. He was one of 7 siblings. He attended Lewis Lake country school for elementary before graduating from Ogilvie High School. After school he went into farming, which was the joy of his life. On August 29, 1964 he married the love of his life Marjorie “Mitzi” Walton at Saint Paul Lutheran Church in Ogilvie. Together they had 3 kids, Kim, Todd, and Clint. Bob was very involved in his church. He enjoyed gardening, farming, his Dalbo breakfast club, and being with his family. In winter when farming was slower he loved cutting wood for future use. In summer you would always find him and his grandkids baling square bales. There was never a time he was completely idle.
Bob was preceded in death by his parents; his brothers, Orm, Jack, and Gene; and sisters, Lee and Arlys.
He is survived by his wife Mitizi; children, Kim (Roy) Bossen, Todd (Sharon), and Clint; grandchildren, Chelsea (Jake) Benson, Katie, Mariah (Alex) Hoyles, Bryce Bosen, Cole, and Sophie; great-grandchildren Anthony, Henry, and William; sister Dorthy Ann of Fairmont; and many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
