Sternnes family......I send my sympathy to all of you. I know he will always remain in your hearts.

Bonnie Engrav Boettcher on Apr 3, 2019

Deanna and Missy, and the Stennes family. Such sad news that your dad passed away. He certainly cared for you two girls. You were the apples of his eyes. He will long be remembered as a happy guy wherever he went and he was well known around town. You sure have many happy memories to keep and they will make you smile later on when you think of them. You almost will need two funeral homes i bet to make room for everyone who will be coming. Bless you both. Bonnie Engrav Boettcher

Thinking of you Missy. What a wonderful daughter you were to your parents. Surely he will be truly missed. Remember the laughs, mowing the lawn and sharing Shamrock Shakes!
