Mark Edward Pandorf

May 3, 1953 — February 9, 2022

Mark Edward Pandorf, 68, of Callaway, Nebraska, passed away on Wednesday, February 9, 2022, at CHI Health Good Samaritan Hospital in Kearney.

Mark was born May 3, 1953, in Callaway to Francis “Punch” and Mary Jane (Griffith) Pandorf.  He was raised in Callaway, attended school there, and graduated with the Class of 1971. He then attended the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, where he was a member of the ATO Fraternity and received a Business degree in 1975. After college, Mark moved back home to help his dad with farming, ranching and the feedlot.

On February 26, 1977, he married Diane Kimball at St. Boniface Catholic Church in Callaway. They made their home in Callaway where five children were blessed to this union: Marcus, Lori, Linsey, Kelli and Traci.

Faith, Family and Cattle were the most important things in Mark’s life. He absolutely loved the Feedlot – it was his passion. He loved taking drives to look at the cattle and “check the grass and water.” He would often take his grandchildren for rides in the feed truck to feed cattle and there were always adventures during calving season. He also loved horses and taught his children and grandchildren how to ride and enjoyed taking them on trail rides. The pride that he had for his children and grandchildren could be heard through his loud clapping and seen through the smile on his face at all of their activities. He was their biggest and best fan.

Sundays were the best days meant for church, giving countless boat rides, and relaxing in the sun among family and friends at Lake Maloney in North Platte. Nothing made him happier than being surrounded by those he loved. He was also a life-long member of the Saint Boniface Catholic Church in Callaway, the Knights of Columbus, and the Nebraska Cattlemen’s Association.

Mark is survived by his wife, Diane, of Callaway; his son, Marcus (Shelley) Pandorf of Callaway; his daughters: Lori Pandorf of Callaway, Linsey (Heath) Johnson of Lexington, Kelli (Adam) Reid of Ozark, Missouri, and Traci (Bryson) Kennedy of Callaway; 13 grandchildren: Kira, Jessie, Tesa, Erin, Olivia, Spencer, Lauryn, Harper, Kolby, Taylor, Ashlyn, Ruby and Edie; and one great-grandchild, Sawyer; his mother, Mary Jane Pandorf of Callaway; five brothers: Mike (Joann) Pandorf of Callaway, Thomas Pandorf of Bennett, Colorado,  Donald (Molly) Pandorf, Kenneth Pandorf, and Steven (Rhonda) Pandorf, all of Callaway; two sisters: Marie Young of Mullen, Nebraska, and Barbara (John) Reinhardt of Berthoud, Colorado; mother-in-law, Reta Kimball of North Platte and brother-in-law, Tom (Sue) Kimball of Grant, and Edwin (Bonnie) Kimball of Sioux City, Iowa; along with numerous nieces, nephews, extended family and many friends.

He was preceded in death by his father, “Punch,” and a brother-in-law, Doug Young.
