Jon Frederick Heumphreus passed peacefully on December 15th, 2022, at the age of 80. He was born March 12th, 1942, to Kermit B and Fredella E (Radford) Heumphreus and spent his childhood in Lincoln, NE, and Cambridge, NE. After attending three years at Lincoln High School and graduating from Cambridge High School, Jon attended the University of Kearney to study construction engineering. He spent over 40 years as a superintendent in the grain elevator industry, retiring in 2012. For most of his life, Jon was a resident and landlord in the Clinton neighborhood owning several properties, three of which he built himself. He was also an influential member of the Clinton Neighborhood Organization. Jon’s passion for construction led him and his brother-in-law, Gene (Woody) Woodhead, to build a lake house on Lake McConaughy for family and friends to enjoy.
Jon had an unrivaled passion for life; his quick wit, orneriness, and genuine care for people led to a life full of love, friendships, and family.
Jon is survived by his significant other, Dixie Rehm; daughter Kelli Elwell & Joel (Son in law), granddaughters Holli & Emily Zimmerman; daughter Jodi Sand & John (son-in-law); granddaughters Tanner Ogden, Kyra Ambs, Leyna, & Nahla Sand; grandsons Coen & Nolan Sand, and his beloved dog, Missie and feisty cat, Thaio.
“In the end, it is not the years in your life that count; it’s the life in your years.”
A casual Celebration of Life Service will be held on Wednesday December 21, 2022 at Havelock Social Hall 4538 N 62nd Street in Lincoln from 3:30 pm to 6:00 pm.
