Stephen "Steve" William Waldron, 80, passed away Friday, September 24, 2021, at Regional West Medical Center in Scottsbluff, with his family by his side.
Steve was born on May 14, 1941, to William "Bill" and Genevieve (LaClair) Waldron, in Alliance. He was the second child of four. He graduated from Alliance High School in 1960, where he was a standout athlete, participating in football, basketball, and track. On April 14, 1961, he was united in marriage to Sandra Sue Steffen, his high school sweetheart. They were married for over 60 years, and to this union, two sons were born, Randy Allen and Russell William Waldron.
Steve began working as a propane distributor when he and Sandra were first married. He later worked for Essay Distributors and then as a carman for the Burlington Northern Railroad. Following this, he became a rural postal carrier, delivering mail from Alliance to Hemingford, and he worked in that capacity until his retirement in 2011. Throughout his life he has enjoyed both hunting and fishing, and in his later years he found great pleasure in rebuilding classic cars.
Steve is survived by his wife Sandra, his two sons, and three grandchildren: Randy Waldron of Alliance; Rusty and Natalie Waldron and their children Sydnie, Nicholas, and Ayvrie, all of Alliance; his brother John and Sue Waldron of Dallas, TX; his sister Judy and Larry DeWeese of Farmington, NM; and his brother-in-law, Dale Lawrence of Wahoo, NE. He is preceded in death by his parents and his older sister, Joyce Lawrence.
A private family service will be held with internment at the Alliance Cemetery.
