Jerel was born to Juel and Arlene (McMillan) Stenberg, Nov. 3, 1970, in Sedalia, Mo. In 1976, the family moved to New York Mills. In 1987 he moved to Grygla, where he graduated in 1989. Eventually settling in Motley, where Jerel helped run the family business until his death. On Oct. 6, 2013, at the Mayo Clinic, Jerel married the woman he had been waiting his whole life for, Connie Bly. Bubba loved hunting, fishing and spending time with his sweetie Connie, his nieces and nephew, and his family and friends.
