UNADILLA – Steven F. Koberlein, 39, knowns to friends and family as the “Big Dog”, passed away on Oct. 13, 2018, after a courageous battle with cancer.

A Unadilla native, he was born June 26, 1979, in Sidney to George and Barbara (Bell) Koberlein. He was a 1998 graduate of the Unatego Junior/Senior High School. For the last 17 years he was employed by Amphenol Aerospace in Sidney.

He lived a rich and endearing life by these tenets: Behave humbly. Give Generously. Dress modestly. Love Sincerely.

In addition, he is survived by a special friend in life in Kia Marisco. Likewise, he will be remembered fondly by many family, friends, and colleagues for his ability to keep it simple; the way living was meant to be.

He was predeceased by his grandparents George and Elizabeth Bell. In addition he was predeceased by a long-time friend and neighbor, Richard “Dick” Cooke.
