Terry Lee Steinacher

September 1, 1943 — June 7, 2024

Terry Lee Steinacher, Sept. 1, 1943-June 7, 2024.

Preceded in death by parents Norman and Ethel (Chasdek) Steinacher. Survived by his sister Carole (Dawn) Steinacher, cousins and good friends, Jim Miller and Taylor Morava. Terry graduated from Milligan High School in 1961, received Bachelor and Masters degrees in Anthropology from the University of Nebraska at Lincoln and a PhD in Archaeology from the University of Oklahoma. Terry was commissioned as an Air Force Lieutenant; later promoted to Captain and served as an intelligence officer in Vietnam. He spent most of his career as the Nebraska State Historical Preservationist with his office at Ft. Robinson. He resided in Crawford, Nebraska appreciating the beauty and history of the land. Terry enjoyed his books (especially history), his extensive and varied music collection, travels to Europe and Egypt, but most of all his golfing with Jim and Taylor and others up to the challenge. Terry gifted us with his goodness, generous spirit, and wry, dry sense of humor. And he was humble enough to call his little sister when encountering technical issues (usually got a good answer). A man of few words, yet he spoke volumes, he will forever be missed.
