TOO THE FAMILY OF DON MY PRAYERS FOR YOUR GRIEVE YET DON HAD A WONDERFUL LIFE MAY HE REST IN PEACE
Hi Berg family. I am sorry for the loss of Coach Berg. I was a student of coach at Horace Mann Jr. High from 1963-1966. I was a student of his my 8th grade year, and he was a GREAT TEACHER! My 9th grade year he selected me as a student coach. What an honor! That was one of the big reasons that I decided to enter education as a career. After 38 years, I just retired from public education as a A.P U.S. History teacher and a high school coach. Coach Berg had a great impact on the direction of my life, and I am forever grateful to him. He was a fine man and mentor. Dave Ponsford
I am one of those students who fondly remembers Mr. Berg and whose life he did touch. He was my math teacher at Roosevelt Jr. High School in 1949-1950. We all thought, "How could I be so lucky to have such a handsome teacher and such great one!"
