Mark Eugene Stormberg, 67, passed away on October 10th, 2021, with his wife and children by his side.
Mark’s off-beat sense of humor, fierce love of family, and love of nature, are a few of the things that will be carried on by those that loved him. Mark was known for his ability to make everyone laugh (including himself), and he never missed an opportunity to use his wildly inappropriate sense of humor in any situation.
Mark enjoyed the simple things in life, a good conversation, reading a book over the counter, and grilling a steak to perfection (medium rare) with a cold beer in hand.
Mark was a music connoisseur, and spent countless hours listening to his vast collection of albums and cd’s, all while quizzing his wife and children with “who sings this?”
To Mark, his family was his world, and meant more to him than anything else. He married the love of his life, Amy, and together they raised 6 beautiful children: Michael (Jenna) Stormberg, Elizabeth (Daniel) Hagans, Rebecca (Nathan) Wichert, Thomas (Elizabeth) Stormberg, Margaret Stormberg, and Grace Stormberg. Between them all, Mark had 10 grandchildren that he loved spending time with. He is also survived by his mother, Rosalie Stormberg, as well as his brothers and sisters. His father, Donald Stormberg, preceded him in death.
He was passionate about classic muscle cars, Nebraska football, Creighton basketball, and the Green Bay Packers. He believed that spending time with the people he loved the most, was the best way to spend time. He often brought his children and grandchildren with him to find rocks to add to his extensive collection (he couldn’t resist a dark colored amethyst), and woke up his family in the middle of the night to lay under the stars during a meteor shower or to listen to loons out on the lake.
He remembered the little things that made people who they are, and often surprised them with a gift, whether it be a box of their favorite candy, a feather he found, a social media post, or a bouquet of flowers, just because it made him think of them.
The Christmas season brought out the “Clark” in him. He spent countless hours hanging a ridiculous amount of colorful lights, both inside and outside the house, that could be seen from miles away. His infamous Christmas Eve “Reindeer Dance” will be a tradition carried on by his sons (and sons-in-law), to ensure the reindeer know where to stop.
Mark will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.
A visitation will take place on November 6th from 9:30 am - 11:00 am at The Broadmoor63 in Omaha, Nebraska (2323 S. 63rd Circle), followed by a graveside service (11:30 am) at Calvary Cemetery (7710 W. Center Road). A Celebration of Life, a time for close family and friends to come together to share stories, memories, and celebrate Mark, will be held from 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm at The Broadmoor63 (2323 S. 63rd Circle).
The family requests memorial tributes be sent to Amy Stormberg for Mark’s funeral fund to assist with expenses.
