Allan, the eldest child of Marvin and Matilda “Tillie” (Arp) Rastede, was born on February 7, 1945, at Wayne, NE.  He was baptized April 1945 and confirmed May 1959 at St. Paul Lutheran Church, Concord, NE, where he was a life-time member.  He spent his childhood on a farm southwest of Allen, NE, and attended elementary school one mile south of the farm at Rose Hill District 51.  He then attended junior and high school at Allen Consolidated School, graduating in 1963.  He continued farming with his father and serving in the 185th Air National Guard, at Sioux City, IA.  The unit was activated in 1968-1969 following the Pueblo Crisis and sent to Kwang Ju, South Korea.  A highlight of his life was returning to Kwang Ju, when visiting Korea, when his daughter was stationed in Korea.  He was a lifetime member of the Floyd Gleason American Legion post.  On April 3, 1971, he married Marcia Stamp at St. Paul Lutheran Church, Holstein, IA.  The couple lived in Allen and later on a farm 2 miles south of Allen where they raised their three children, Greg, Kelli, and Carla.  Allan farmed first with his father, then his brother Wayne, and finally for the last 22 years with his son.  In name he was retired, but in actuality, he was still very active in the farm operation both with decision making and physically helping with the farm work.  He paid close attention to the commodity markets and price fluctuation with selling grain.  Allan and Marcia worked well together on the farm as well as traveling, both with their children and after the children left home, visiting many states and foreign countries.  Allan was a generous financial supporter of surrounding churches, local organizations, and fundraisers. 

Survivors include his wife:  Marcia Rastede; children:  Greg (Abby) Rastede, Kelli (Jeff) Sorenson, and Carla (Bobby) Sossa; grandchildren:  Samantha and Mason Rastede, Avery, Sydney, and Riley Sorenson, and Brecken and Hayden Sossa; sister Carol Hassler; brother Wayne Rastede; and many in-laws, nieces, and nephews.

Allan was preceded in death by his parents Marvin and Tillie Rastede and Marcia’s parents Vernon and Geneva Stamp.
