Alan served his church and community by being on the church board for numerous years and was a member of the Dassel Co-op Creamery Board of Directors. Alan loved the farm, watching the crops grow and milking his cows. His family was dear to his heart and he enjoyed the many holidays that they celebrated together. He could often be found enjoying nature, watching the purple martins as he was swinging on the porch swing. He loved his animals and especially had a soft spot for his dog, “Old Snoopy”. He was an avid sports fan and enjoyed the Minnesota Twins, Vikings, and Minnesota Gophers football team. He also enjoyed spending time duck hunting, swimming, and waterskiing. Alan will be missed by his family and fondly remembered for being a loving father, grandfather, and husband. He is survived by his wife, Shirley Skalberg of Dassel, his children, Debra (Gene) Oberg of Dassel, Scott (Kathy) Skalberg of Dassel and Brad Skalberg of Cokato, eight grandchildren, 16 ½ great grandchildren, and two brothers, Kenneth Skalberg of Dassel, and Gary Skalberg of Chanhassen. He is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews and other relatives. He was preceded in death by his parents, brothers, Robert Skalberg, and Ronald Skalberg, and a sister, Jeanette Tomlinson.
