Eugene "Gus" Carroll Obermeyer, age 72, of Bricelyn MN, died Friday, April 21, 2017 at St. Mary's Hospital in Rochester, MN. A memorial service will be held Tuesday, April 25, 2017 at 11:00 AM at Bricelyn Lutheran Church in Bricelyn, MN with Pastor Nancy Dreier officiating. Visitation will be from 9-11:00 AM at the church just prior to the service. Military honors will be accorded by the Kiester American Legion Post #454.
Gus was born July 14, 1944 in Albert Lea, MN, the son of Harry and Helena (Ahnemann) Obermeyer and was raised on the family farm in Kiester Township. He went to school in Kiester, completing High School at the Southern School of Agriculture in Waseca, Class of 1962. Gus was proud to serve in the United States Airforce from 1965 to 1968, returning home to farm with "Pa" and his brother Owen. He was united in marriage to Sandra Weyhrauch on February 2, 1972 in Kiester and moved south of Bricelyn soon afterwards. To this marriage three children were born, Heidi, Jason and Adam. All his life, Gus loved being outside working the land in farming and gardening. He also enjoyed working at Mrs. Gerry's Kitchen. Gus was a member of Bricelyn Lutheran Church serving as a deacon, soloist, usher, confirmation mentor and youth group advisor. He served on the Bricelyn School Board, and was the Seely Township Clerk for 12 years. Gus enjoyed fishing trips in northern MN with his family, spending time around a bonfire, his garden, and quiet time on his favorite swing.

He is survived by his wife Sandy; children: Heidi Obermeyer, Jason and Diane Obermeyer, Adam and Emily Obermeyer; grandchildren Samantha and Ben Wegner, Spencer Ehlert and fiancée Bree, Tanner Jensen, Hannah Obermeyer, Spencer Jensen, Reese Obermeyer, Kayler Jensen; great-grandchildren Logan and Piper Wegner; sister Catherine Olson; as well as brothers and sisters-in-law and many nieces and nephews.
Gus was preceded in death by his parents; two brothers; and numerous loved ones.

Gus shared his Faith and Love with those he was around. We are blessed to have been touched by his life in a profound way.
