Clarence Greguras Obituary

Clarence Edward Greguras, 81, entered into eternal rest on April 17, 2023.  He was born on May 25, 1941 in Omaha, NE to Edward and Marie (Hain) Greguras. He graduated from Dwight Assumption High School in 1959.  Following high school, Clarence entered the U.S. Navy until 1962.

Clarence was united in marriage to Barbara Karel on January 22, 1966.  From this union two sons and a daughter were born:  Robert Edward, Jean Marie, and Gary John.  Clarence and Barbara were married for 33 years before Barbara died on September 1, 1999.  During their marriage they resided in Bee, NE and were members of St. Wenceslaus Catholic Church. On November 29, 2002, at Holy Trinity Catholic Church, Clarence married Charlotte Swanda.  Charlotte preceded Clarence in death on December 30, 2019.  Clarence is survived by his sons Bob (Tamara Arnce) and Gary and stepdaughters Mary (Tom) Dobesh and Kaye (James) Nichols. Clarence also is survived by his step-grandchildren Megan and Alex Beckman and Anthony, Christopher, and Benjamin Nichols; sister Mary Beth (Sam) Smith; brothers-in-law Dave Egr, John Holsan Sr., and Stanley (Bud) Karel; sisters-in-law Linda Egr, Cathy Greguras, Emily Greguras, and Mary Lee Hain as well as numerous nephews, nieces, and friends.  Clarence was preceded in death by his parents, Edward and Marie Greguras, 1st wife Barbara (Karel), 2nd wife Charlotte (Swanda), daughter Jean Marie; father-in law (Stanley Karel), mother-in-law (Ann Karel), brothers William and Edward Jr.; brother-in-law Marion Hain, sisters-in-law Anna Marie Holsan, Carol Karel, and Nancy Karel; and niece Debbie Holsan.

Clarence was employed at the Bee Elevator, Hain TV in David City, and the US Post Office (Seward) (1967-1999).  Clarence was an active member of the Knights of Columbus, Brainard Legion Post 273, and was a lector and parishioner in St. Wenceslaus (Bee) and Holy Trinity (Brainard) Catholic Churches.

His immense love for his family and friends was well known and was reflected in him frequently suggesting "let's have one more" so that he could spend additional time with those he loved.
