OBERG, Brian J.

October 9, 1940 – November 19, 2011

We are sad to announce the passing of Brian John Oberg on Saturday November 19th at the Agape Hospice in Calgary. He was a man of strength and courage who inspired and will be dearly missed.

    Todd, Travis and Marg,
    We were so sorry to hear of Brian’s passing. He was a terrific man and always loved an adventure. Over the last 30 years he has shown the most incredible strength and in spite of everything he never lost that wonderful sense of humor. He was one of the good guys! He will be missed.

    Dear Travis, Todd, Marg, Jaiden and Liam,

    Please accept our deepest sorrow at the loss of your Dad and Grandpa. Brian was always a very giving, friendly and cheerful man and the world will be an emptier place without his presence. Unfortunately we’re down in Arizona and won’t be able to attend the funeral to pay him tribute. Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers and we will surely touch base with you when we return in December.
    Sincerely,
    Joe and Kathleen Colucci and Family

    Brian was not only family but a true Friend and will be dearly missed. He was a great inspiration to me and all that met him. We are thankful for the good times we shared and especially remembering the Motorcycle trip we took ten years back, through the Rockies into Nelson and Cranbrook. Ralph, Brian and myself with a few friends just too enjoyable, and even got Brian thinkihg about getting a motorcycle. He was one of a kind.

  23. It was with much sadness that I recently discovered the loss of my friend, Brian. I first met Brian when I was entertaining at Arizona Joe’s in Apache Junction, AZ about 15 years ago. We became good friends. I visited Brian in Calgary and we spent time together on his several trips to Apache Junction. Brian was always one to make friends where ever he went. He was truly an inspiration to all of us that knew him. Brian was one of a kind. You have my belated condolences on his passing.
