Paul & Patti Kuskie

d. November 25, 2015

Paul & Patti Kuskie, ages 57 and 55, of Ogallala, passed away on Wednesday, November 25, 2015 at their home in Ogallala.

Paul was born October 10, 1958 at Ogallala, Nebraska to Clifford and Mary Lou (Williams) Kuskie. Patti was born March 17, 1960 at Milford, Delaware to Jerry and Norma (Marvel) Hendon. The two both graduated from Brule High School with the classes of 1976 and 1978 respectively.

Paul and Patti were united in marriage on April 21, 1979 in Ogallala. The couple made their home in Brule for several years before moving to Ogallala in 1983. Their union was blessed with 2 sons, Jon and Jeff. Paul farmed Southwest of Brule in addition to owning and operating a custom spraying business for several years. Patti worked at Don’s Pharmacy before becoming a para educator, a job she did for nearly 15 years. Patti had worked part-time at ASC while she was still in education, eventually working full-time on the manufacturing floor before being asked to join the office staff.

Paul and Patti enjoyed spending time with their family, and being outdoors. They would often spend the majority of the summer camped out at the lake, where they liked to water ski and spend time with family. Paul was an avid hunter and also enjoyed scuba diving. Patti liked to work in the yard and in her flower beds. She kept an immaculate home, and worked hard to keep everything in its place. The couple loved their sons dearly, and their most cherished moments in life were spent with them. They will be sorely missed by family and friends alike.

Preceding Patti and Paul in death are Paul’s parents, Clifford and Mary Lou Kuskie; Patti’s father, Jerry; and the couple’s nephew, Jason Hendon.
