Aug. 27,1944 - Nov. 18, 2009

Larry M. Sjoberg was born to eternal life Wednesday, Nov. 18, 2009. He was born Aug. 27,1944.

Larry was a loving, caring and giving man that most enjoyed spending time with his family. He was a recent enthusiast of Farmville and Fishville so he could farm and fish with his "kids" and friends. He enjoyed all kinds of sports, gambling and fishing. His favorite time of the year was Christmas and watching his family open presents.

Larry will be dearly missed by his wife of 41 years, Christine (nee Katzke) Sjoberg. He was the loving father of Dana Sjoberg, Tricia (Darrin) Adams and Amanda (Curt) Rydzik. He is further survived by the loves of his life, his grandkids, who gave him his greatest joy, Hannah and Nathan Adams, and Jackson, Logan and Baby Rydzik; his siblings, Darvin (Dorothy) Sjoberg, Irene (Roland) Habeck, Emmett (Mary) Sjoberg and Roger (Elsa) Sjoberg; his mother-in-law, Rose Katzke; many sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law, Linda (Ray) Clifford, Louie (Gina) Katzke, Jenni (John) Bannier, Andy Katzke and Diane (Jeff) Knueppel; and nieces, nephews and friends.

Larry was preceded in death by his father and mother, Arvin and Bertha Sjoberg; sisters, Elvice Paasche and Bernes Sjoberg; brother, Gerald Sjoberg; and sister-in-law, Rhonda Katzke.

Friends may visit from 10 a.m. until the noon funeral service Saturday, Nov. 21, at St. Catherine of Alexandria Church, N8512 Brown St., Mapleton. His final rest will be in Glenview Memorial Gardens in Ixonia.
