Ronald Dale Oberski, age 64 of Atlanta, MI, passed away peacefully at his home on December 31st. He was born in Sterling Heights, MI on July 8, 1957 to the late Richard and Carol Oberski. He was a graduate of Hillman High School class of 1975. Ron met and later married his wife Tammy Truitt in California on June 14, 1986. They had their first three daughters there before moving back to Michigan, where they had their fourth daughter. Ron enjoyed the outdoor activities northern Michigan offers, including hunting and fishing, and taught all of his daughters to embrace these recreations as they grew up. He could always be found tinkering in the garage or tending his lawn and garden.
