WINTHROP - Reginald "Reggie" Oberg, 63, of Winthrop, made his way to heaven on Sunday, March 3, 2019.

Born Sept. 9, 1955 in Caribou, Reggie was a successful Eagle Scout and Cony High School graduate. In his later life, Reggie married his loving wife and proudly worked as a papermaker at Verso paper mill for thirty years.

After retirement in 2017, Reggie continued to enjoy life with his best friend and wife of almost forty-four years, Joan Oberg, and their three dogs. Reggie was an amazing father to both of his children: his son, Christopher Oberg and his wife, Johannah of Winthrop, and his daughter, Valarie Oberg and her fiancé, Chris Baker, of Chelsea. Most of all, he was an amazing grandfather, and loved all four of his grandchildren: Kayleigh and Madisyn Oberg, and Alecia and Kyle Baker. He is also survived by his sister, Judy Dube and her husband, Norman, of Hermon, as well as several nieces and nephews. Reggie leaves us to join his mother, Joanne Sinclair, and his father, Russell Oberg, in heaven.

An intelligent, loving, caring man, Reggie was full of knowledge, brilliant chess plays, wit, and most of all, his trademark sense of humor. Although he was a man of many interests, he was particularly a huge fan of old-westerns, MASH, and an avid online poker player. In fact, "I'm a millionaire...well at least online" became a regular catch-phrase of his.

Reggie was truly one of a kind and instilled in his friends and family that humility should be seasoned like salt, with a touch of pride and ego, making it something savory. Rest in peace, Reggie, loving husband, playful father, and reliable friend, you will be dearly missed.

A Celebration of Life for Reggie will be held at a later date.

Arrangements are in the care of Roberts Funeral Home, 62 Bowdoin St, Winthrop, where condolences may be sent to the family on the obituary page of the website at www.familyfirstfuneralhomes.com
