Robert “Bob” Stenstrom

MAIDEN — Bob, “Sir Robert”, 73, passed away at his daughter’s home in the care of his family and Catawba Regional Hospice on February 13, 2018.

He was born the son of the late Carl Robert Stenstrom and the late Hildred Clarke Stenstrom on August 30, 1944 in Des Moines, Iowa. Bob grew up at Camp Dodge in Johnston, Iowa and spent a few years as a member of the Iowa National Guard. Later, his strong will and determination would lead him to self-made success.  For nearly twenty-one years, he was employed by Rix Corporation, out of Boston, as a regional manager. From there, he worked for a brokerage company in Charlotte. This would pave the way to his entrepreneurship and the founding of Stenco Brokerage Company, for which he was so deeply proud.  He developed genuine friendship and great respect for those who had the pleasure of working with him.  Bob held a membership at Glen Oaks for greater than forty years.  He found peace on the fairway and instilled that sentiment in his children and those he introduced to the game.  He also shared a love for auto-racing which was a family involved pastime as well as finding pleasure in meandering through second-hand stores and thrift markets searching for his next prized possession.  It was his hobby to collect a variety of odds and ends for which he will leave to family and friends.  His strength was plenty, and his heart was bountiful.  Those who knew him will never forget him. In addition to his parents, sister, Deanna Knox preceded him in death.

Left to cherish his memory: son, Bobby Stenstrom and wife Kristie of Maiden; daughter, Annette E. Carnevale and husband Jason of Maiden; mother of his children, Karen Miller of Maiden; four grandchildren, Nickolas, Sara, Ashley and Brittany; two great-grandchildren, Raegan and Zaine and two brothers, Ronald and Arthur Stenstrom, both of Iowa.

The funeral service will be held Friday, February 16, 2018 at noon at Burke Mortuary Chapel in Maiden with Pastor Richard Schwandt officiating. Burial will follow at Maiden City Cemetery. The family will receive friends prior to the service from 11 a.m. until 11:45 a.m. at the funeral home.

Memorials may be made to Catawba Regional Hospice, 3975 Robinson Road, Newton, NC 28658
