Steve Alan Oberg

Steve looked forward to his Tuesday nights golfing with his buddies, ice fishing in his homemade ice shack in the wintertime, taking boat rides down the river on the pontoon, and tinkering in the garage listening to all the great classics. Most of all, he enjoyed spending time with his family and friends; and traveling the country and making the best of memories with his best friend and wife, Dixie.
