HOLMEN -- Steven "Gabe" Ray Gabrielson, 61, of Holmen died of cancer Sunday, Jan. 5, 2020, at home in rural Holmen. He was born Nov. 8, 1958, to Harland and Jean (Johnson) Gabrielson. He married Cathy (Peterson) Naas Sept. 23, 2000, at Lewis Valley Lutheran Church near Stevenstown.
Steve grew up on a farm in rural Holmen. He attended Holmen schools until graduating in 1976. He was active in 4-H, winning prizes for his steers at the fair and was a record setting wrestler in high school. He worked hard on the farm and later did construction work and woodworking. He worked for Interstate Roofing for 19 years, during which he earned the nickname "Skippy," due to his unique bowling style. In 2002, Steve started Gabrielson Landscaping and ran the business until 2019. He was one of the best Bobcat operators in the business. Steve was known for his quick wit, sense of humor and strong work ethic. He enjoyed fast cars, car shows and spending time outdoors.
