Obituary for Otto Kenneth Ober

The Life of a Legend
In Little Falls, MN, the night of June 22, 1948, the legend, Otto Kenneth Ober was born to parents, Burdette Ober and Doris (Kuehl) Habeck. He spent his younger years raising cane around the Worthington Area.
Ot spent many miles behind the wheel of a semi-truck, running his rig from coast to coast. Then he traded in the 18 wheeler to get behind the wheel of Schaap’s truck and later, short haul loads. When he wasn’t driving truck, he was riding horses. He was born, raised, and lived a cowboy life. He also treasured time with family and friends. Many weekends you could find him circled up, a seven-seven in his hand, shooting the breeze with those stopping to visit.
Ot had plenty of fun through the years, and was lucky in love too. He is survived by his current wife Kari Ober. Besides husband, another title he wore proudly was dad and grandpa. Ot is survived by his children, Bobbie Jo Zavala, Texas; Larry (Robin) Ober, Rushmore; Tanya (Dan) Wagner, Worthington; Tena (Steve) Green, Colorado; Tammy (Chad) Meyer, Windom; Otto (Buddy) Ober Jr., Texas; and Teri (Dave) Marsh, Colorado; step-children, James Radmaker, Rushmore; Natashya Reinke, Mississippi; and Karly Branch, South Dakota. He is also survived by 26 grandchildren, 7 great-grandchildren, his brother Harlan (Peg) Ober, Brewster; many nieces, nephews, cousins, friends and other loved ones. He was preceded in death, after a 30 year marriage, by Peggy Ober; sister, Mary; uncle, Kenny, and parents.
Ot was many things to many people: the son, the brother, the husband, the dad, the uncle, the friend… the legend.
Memorial services will be held on Friday, November 9, 2018, at 11:00 a.m., at the Benson Funeral Home Chapel in Worthington, MN. Burial will be in the Hersey Cemetery near Brewster, MN.
