Stephen John "Steve" Habermann died early Wednesday, Sept. 3, 2003, in Anchorage. He was 60.
A memorial service will be at 3 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 9, at Soldotna Bible Chapel, 300 W. Marydale Ave. in Soldotna.
Mr. Habermann was born Jan. 13, 1948, in Sturgeon Bay, Wis. He came to Alaska in 1971 following college graduation from Northern Illinois University. He worked in Anchorage briefly before beginning his lifelong career in the oil industry, which started with his work on the trans-Alaska oil pipeline.
"Steve's greatest joy and passion was his family. He was an extremely dedicated father, husband and friend. Steve was loving, loyal, responsible and fun. He brought laughter and quiet caring to all he touched. He loved spending time with his children in whatever passion or interest they had, including reading stories, sports, dog mushing, fishing or just talking. He enjoyed time spent with his friends at their cabin," his family said.
"Steve leaves his mark in love and quiet strength that will be greatly missed by all he touched."
Mr. Habermann is survived by his wife, Janice; children, Matthew, Elisabeth and Scott, all of Soldotna; sister, Mary Kenny of Wisconsin; brother, Mike Habermann of Wisconsin; niece and nephew, Elizabeth and Aaron Habermann of Alaska; and many other relatives in the Lower 48.
In lieu of flowers, the family prefers contributions to a savings account at Wells Fargo for the benefit of his children.
