November 2, 1930 — July 19, 2022

Calvin F. Dittmar of Oconto passed away Tuesday, July 19, 2022 at Emerald Care Nursing in Cozad at the age of 91. Calvin was born November 2, 1930 on the family farm near Oconto, Nebraska to Frederick and Elsie (Studley) Dittmar. He resided on that farm his entire life, except when he was away for the military. He graduated from Oconto High School with the class of 1948. Calvin entered the U.S. Army in December of 1952 and was honorably discharged in October of 1954. Following his return home, Calvin was employed for a short time at Helmuth Well Service and Monroe Auto. He then went to work for Game and Parks and retired from the Custer County Road Department. Calvin enjoyed helping local farmers when they needed an extra hand and during harvest. He liked to stay busy, and could often be found tinkering in his shop building things. His nieces and nephews lovingly call him "Uncle Bub". He considered each one of them his "grandchild" and attended as many of their sports events and activities as he could. He loved horses, gambling, and went skiing for the first time at the age of 67. Calvin will be missed by many. He was preceded in death by his parents; sister, Joyce Hendricks and niece, Lisa Dittmar.
