After a courageous battle with cancer, Jeffery Brian Schoberg passed away peacefully at his home surrounded by loved ones on September 20 in Plymouth, IN at the age of 48. Jeff was born on July 18, 1973, to father Steven Schoberg and mother Patricia Schoberg (Young). Jeff is survived by his loving wife Beth Schoberg (Watson) and son, Aaram Kamali, as well as his parents and sisters: Sara King, Plymouth; Angie Peterson (Nick), South Bend; Jennifer Segraves, Plymouth; and Katie Phillips (Justin), Plymouth as well as many loved nieces, nephews and lifelong friends.
Jeff was a naturally gifted craftsman with a love of woodworking. He joined his father,
Steve, and helped build Schoberg Restorations, a business specializing in original hardwood window sash repair for historic private homes and public buildings. Over the years, Schoberg Restoration’s reputation has grown with projects successfully completed throughout the Northern Indiana region while building valued relationships with customers. His sister Jennifer will continue his legacy.
To his friends, many of whom had been buddies since his days at Lincoln Jr. High, Jeff was just Jéfe. He loved cards and other games. He was a both fiercely competitive and gracious at the same time. He was fearless on a ladder, skateboard, or bicycle and loved a good time. His friends will forever be uplifted by their time with Jeff, and be diminished by his absence as well.
He enjoyed travel, riding and fixing up bicycles, good beer, and good music. He was the rare good listener and good talker. He would always put one at ease, and he never took his friendships for granted. To that end, one of his last expressed concerns was that his lifelong friends, and others over the age of 45, get their colonoscopies for gosh sakes. Jéfe always was and will continue to be a friend well met.
The family would like to thank all the Hospice workers who cared for him so lovingly at the end of his life. His friends and family that traveled near and far to see him touched us all. The love and support received will remain in our hearts forever. Life is short, nothing is promised; love for the day and love all you can.
An avid cyclist, Jeff has requested a memorial bike ride be held Summer 2022 for colorectal cancer awareness. Stay tuned.
