Obituary for Wayne Louis Dobberstein

Wayne L. Dobberstein passed away on Friday, April 10, 2020. He was 82 years old. He was born on November 22, 1937 in Kearney, Nebraska to Albert and Nora Dobberstein. He is survived by his wife, Cecilia, his children; Rene Bebout, Julie Dobberstein and Eric Dobberstein; three grandchildren, Devin Bebout, Madison Bebout and Andrew Bebout; his brother Dale Dobberstein(Barbara) from Arizona, and sister in law Ramona Dobberstein from Kearney, Nebraska.

He is preceded in death by his parents, 5 brothers and 2 sisters; Jim, Glen, Albert, Cole, Jack, Erma Kreuger and Irene Leach.

Wayne graduated from Kearney high school in 1956 and shortly after joined the U.S. Navy where he served four years. After his discharge he moved to Denver where he worked briefly with Skelly Oil Company, and Jeffco Manufacturing Company, a beverage and beer can manufacturing company, which was eventually purchased by Ball Corporation. He was employed by Ball Metal Container Group for 38 years until his retirement at age 65 as a Quality Control Representative..

During his employment with Ball, he traveled extensively all over the world; China, Israel, Italy, Mexico, Guatemala to name a few. in 1990 he received an award for excellence for his contributions to Balls achievements in the packaging industry.

He loved Lake McConoughey and spent almost six months every year at his home at North Shore, boating, fishing and, of course having a beer with his pals. He was active in the Lemoyne, Nebraska Senior Center and frequently served at the

fundraiser breakfasts and ran the “Cake Walk” at their yearly bazaar.

He also loved baseball and the Colorado Rockies and followed them from the first game they played at Coors Field. He went every year to Spring Training in Arizona and was so disappointed when the Corona Virus shut them down this year.

He loved keeping up with a lot of people. His weekly call list was extensive. He will be genuinely missed by his family, his friends at Ball, his baseball buddies, lake friends and old friends he kept tabs on.

We’ll miss you Wayne, you were a good man, Husband, Dad, Grandpa and a friend to everyone.
