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.

  10. We have some good memories of Bob. One is when we would all get dressed up & have dance parties in one of our homes.
    Our deepest sympathy to his entire family.

  11. Your in our thoughts and prayers. Bob was a really nice and caring person I always enjoyed going to the farm when I was a kid he called me little Kyle. Kyle Steffen and family.

  12. Bob and I attended Lewis Lake country school together, third to sixth grade. Most of those years it was only the two of us, no other students in our class. During our sixth grade year we made a trip, via school bus, to Ogilvie High School, for one day of orientation…how frightened we were at seeing all those kids we would be joining for seventh grade! We stood in the doorway and held hands, it was a safe haven, don’t know how long it was before a teacher invited us into the room. Thanks to the friendship of those fellow seventh graders we became the Ogilvie High School Class of 1960.
    You will be missed my friend.

  13. We will always treasure the times we spent with Bob and will miss him terribly. He was genuine friend and mentor. He had a mischievous way about him at times, and a great sense of humor. The love and pride Bob had for his family is what really stood out. We cannot imagine the loss you are all feeling right now and want you to know that you are in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

  14. My sympathy to your family. I just saw the notice of Bob’s passing. I always enjoyed seeing Bob and hearing stories about his breakfast meetings and tractor runs. He had a great smile and laugh.
