Obituary for Steven Carl O'Berg

Steven Carl  O'Berg
Steven Carl O'Berg, 50 of Smithville, MO died Saturday, June 27, 2015 while piloting his beloved Pitts S2-B aerobatic plane at the Cameron Air Show. Visitation is from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 7, 2015 at Bruce Funeral Home 106 S Center, Gardner, KS. Memorial services will be 10:00 Wednesday, July 8 at Paradise Pointe Golf Complex, 18212 Golf Course Road, Smithville, MO. In lieu of flowers the family suggests memorial donations to the Aircraft Owners & Pilots Association ( or the Experimental Aircraft Association ( KS.

Steve was born May 29, 1965 to Fremont "Dusty" and Marlene (Silver) O'Berg in Oklahoma City, OK. He graduated from Gardner-Edgerton (KS) High School in 1983. On February 4, 2010 he married Karri Williams of Topeka, KS. He retired from a 23 year military career in 2007. Since his military retirement, he flew in a variety of private aviation roles. Steve flew both rotor and fixed wing aircraft over his career span. He accumulated over 5000 military flight hours including over 400 combat hours in Iraq. His private flight hours totaled over 7000 hours.

Steve approached everything in life full bore and with passion. This included his love for his family, anything aviation and his hobbies. If it included an adrenaline rush it was likely a hobby of Steve's. Motorcycles, snowmobiles, boats, skiing, wakeboarding, skydiving, anything fast! The only things he did slow were eat and arrive at family functions. His quick wit, sense of humor and ability to see the sunny side of everything will be so missed by his family and friends. He spent his life doing for others.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Fremont "Red" Sr. and Edna O'Berg, Horace and DeLamar Silver and father Fremont "Dusty" O'Berg. He is survived by his wife Karri (Williams) and two children Stephanie Rainbolt (Rusty) and Brody O'Berg, 2 stepdaughters, Danielle Sumpter (Brent) and Whitney Peavler and two grandchildren, Evie and Wyatt Rainbolt. Mother, Marlene O'Berg, sister, Vickie Couch (Michael), sister, Marilyn Davidson (David), brother, David O'Berg and sister, Julie Harper (Donny) and many nieces, nephews and cousins and countless extended friends and family spread across the globe.
