Steven William Schobert, 78, of Holcomb, Kansas passed away on Monday, January 29, 2024, at St. Catherine's Hospital in Garden City, Kansas. He was born on January 3, 1946, in Omaha, Nebraska to the late William John and Edith Marie (Knutson) Schobert. 


Steve graduated from the University of Nebraska in 1968 with a bachelor's degree in chemistry. During his college years, he was member of the United States Air Force ROTC. Upon graduation, Steve was commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant in the Air Force. He served as a Fuel Management Officer at MacDill AFB in Florida before being reassigned to SAC Minot in North Dakota. Promoted to Captain, Steve then served as a Missile Combat Crew Commander. He received an honorable discharge from the Air Force in 1975. 


Following his passion for farming and having been raised on a farm himself, Steve returned to farming in Arizona after pursuing further education, at Kansas State University. It was during this time that he met Patti Hall, and they were married on January 11th, 1980, in Beatrice, Nebraska. 


In 1982, Steve began working at Tyson in Holcomb, Kansas as a Quality Control inspector and later transitioned to the Chem Lab. After dedicating many years to his career at Tyson, Steve retired in 2016 and focused on remodeling his home. Known for his avid reading and exceptional handyman skills, he also devoted his spare time volunteering at the Garden City United Methodist Church where he participated in events such as the Groundhog Supper. 


Steve is survived by his loving wife of 44 years, Patti Schobert; his daughters Rachel Worf and husband Zach, Autumn Richardson and husband Justin; his brother Gregg Schobert; his grandchildren, Holly Keim Ashton Keim and fiancée Abbey Miller, Evolet Richardson, Aria Richardson; and great-grandson Alexander Keim.  He is preceded in death by his brother, Larry Schobert.
