Ernest Glup, 76, of Tekamah NE

Ernest Henry Glup was born to Ernest A. and Gladys (Schmidt) Glup May 31, 1939 in Omaha, Nebraska. He passed away Saturday, April 30, 2016 at his home in rural Tekamah, Nebraska, at the age of 76 years

Ernie spent his childhood in Omaha. He moved to Tekamah in 1956 with Don and Lois Blodgett. He graduated from Tekamah High School in 1957.

On June 21, 1959 Ernie was married to Noretta Niemeyer. Four children were born to this union; Scott, Craig, Robyn and Troy.

Ernie spent the next several years in business with his father and brother in a South Omaha service station. He returned to Tekamah and went into the soil conservation business with Don Blodgett. After he bought the business from Don, he and his brother Jerry operated Glup Construction until the business was purchased by sons, Craig and Troy. Ernie continued to sell plastic pipe and culvert until his illness.

The most important decision Ernie made in his life was to accept his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Since that decision, it was vital to him that everyone he met knew the same gift was available to them.

From childhood on, Ernie loved the outdoors and spent his leisure time hunting and fishing. Through those hobbies he made many treasured friendships. This love was passed on to his children and grandchildren. Some of his most enjoyable times were spent with family at his private fishing hole.

He was preceded in death by his parents; brother, Jerry.

He is survived by his wife, Noretta; children, Scott (Kristi) Glup of Willmar, MN, Craig (Lisa) Glup of Tekamah, Robyn (David) Stubbendick of Avoca, NE, Troy (Jennifer) Glup of Tekamah; grandchildren, Josh (Amanda) Stubbendick, Tyler Glup, Hillary (Scott) Wiebusch, Brittany Glup, Matthew Glup, John Stubbendick, Morgan Glup, Ellie Glup, Nicholas Glup; great-grandchildren, Madi and Henry; sister, Molline (Joe) Carroll; several nieces and nephews.
