Darrel was born May 7, 1934, in Adams County, NE, to Alvin and Helen (Hobrock) Stromer. He graduated from Juniata High School in 1952 and received his degree in diesel mechanics from Milford Trade School. Darrel married Marilyn Gangwish on June 20, 1954, at Juniata Community Church in Juniata.

 

Darrel owned and operated Stromer Land Leveling for 65 years and also farmed throughout Adams County. He was a lifelong member of First St. Paul’s Lutheran Church where he was involved in serving on many committees and volunteered his time in many capacities. Darrel was a charter member of Nebraska Land Improvement Contractors of America (NLICA) and past president of the Adams County Ag Society Board of Directors. He was President of the Adams County Fair Foundation, past Captain of the Juniata Volunteer Fire Department, and an organizing member of the Oregon Trail Rodeo. In 2000 he received the John Justin Committeeman of the year, an award honoring one volunteer among the 600 pro rodeos across the nation. Darrel enjoyed spending time with family and friends and traveling around the world with Marilyn.  Darrel’s grandchildren loved going to the Barrel Bar with him to have his namesake sandwich ”The Stromer.” Stromer Land Leveling was his lifelong passion, and he resisted all suggestions to consider retirement. In the end, Darrel got his way by never having to retire.

 

Darrel was preceded in death by his parents; son-in-law, Sam Tong; and grandson, Aaron Tong.
