Jeffrey Allan was born August 26, 1961, at Scottsbluff, Nebraska to Marvin and Joyce (Bauer) Asmus. He started his early education in Lyman, Nebraska and then graduated from Scottsbluff High School in 1980. He attended Western Nebraska Technical College in Sidney, Nebraska where he was on the Dean’s List for Heavy Equipment Operations. While attending WNTC, he also worked for Nebraska Transport Co., loading and unloading transport trucks. He continued to live and work in Sidney for multiple years. Eventually, Jeff moved back to Scottsbluff and went to work for Culligan Water Conditioning. He also helped his father maintain his rental properties.

Growing up, he spent many hours with family and friends at Lake Minatare boating, camping and water skiing. He was an accomplished slalom skier. Jeff was also an avid hunter and then realized his true passion was fishing. He spent countless hours at Lake Minatare and Lake McConaughy always trying to catch “the big one”. He was able to take his trip of a lifetime accompanying his father to fish the waters of Alaska.

Jeff had many talents, one of which was detailing vehicles, motorcycles, and boats. He could make an old car look like it just came from a new car lot. He was also talented enough to play guitar, harmonica, trumpet, and piano. Jeff was ready, willing and able to help anyone who asked, whether it was mowing a lawn, fixing a car, or helping friends move. He was his mother’s on-call handy man. Following in his father’s footsteps, he became a collector of many different items such as marbles, Match Box cars, and ash trays, to name a few.

Survivors include his mother, Joyce Asmus of Scottsbluff; aunts and uncles, Bev (Mark) Overman and Ron Asmus of Scottsbluff; Bill Frank of Gering; Paul (Pat) Asmus of Littleton, Colorado; and Vicki (Don) Ullstrom of Fort Collins, Colorado; his cousins include: Angie Wilson of Scottsbluff; Jennifer Castro of Gering; Michael Frank of Oregon; Tim Frank of Lincoln; Roger Asmus and Andrea Lybarger of Littleton, Colorado; Jill Schneider of Fort Collins, Colorado; and Carrie Birt and James Asmus of Arizona. He is also survived by a close group of friends and his faithful dog, Flora.

Jeff was preceded in death by his father, Marvin Asmus; brother, Marvin Kelley Asmus; paternal grandparents, Victor and Esther Asmus; maternal grandparents, Alex and Bertha Bauer; and aunts, Wendy Asmus and Norma Jean Frank.
