It is with great sadness and love that we announce the passing of our father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend Robert (Blue/Bob) Nuss at the age of 69.
Robert passed away peacefully with his two sons by his side after a brief battle with cancer. He is lovingly remembered by his sons Shane (Carol) of Colorado and Logan (Kristen) of California, brother Butch (LaShara) of Nebraska and sister Judi (Joe) Holtzen of Colorado, and his grandchildren Hayley, Robert, Alexander, Sadie and Henry. He is also survived by 6 nephews and his former spouse  Georgiana Nuss (Ashcraft).
He was preceded in death by his father Delbert Nuss, mother Lois Nuss (Frerichs) and nephew Jeff Holtzen.
Robert was born March 31, 1951 in Hastings.   He attended Giltner High School where he graduated in 1969. He served in the U.S. Army and fought in the Vietnam War. He became a lineman and worked for Nebraska Power and Water. He then moved to Colorado Springs, CO in 1982  where he continued working as a lineman for the Colorado Springs Utilities.  He retired from the Colorado Springs Utilities then moved to California where he continued working as a lineman until full retirement in 2017.  Bob then moved to Smith Center,  KS. In his spare time he loved to hunt pheasants and fish the lakes of Kansas.
Bob was a hard worker who was passionate about his career as a journeyman lineman. He loved to have a good time with friends and family. He was always willing to take a risk or adventure. Always living life to the fullest. If you ever needed anything, Blue was always willing to help in any way he could. He loved his grandchildren more than life, and took great pleasure in making life memories with them. He also loved to take pictures and videos to record happy or funny moments (whether you were looking or not). He loved the game of baseball. From coaching his boys to watching his grandsons. Blue was loved very much and will truly be missed.
Celebration of life to be held at a later date.
