Bertil (slim) Berg passed away on July 20, 2014 after a long courageous battle with heart disease. Bert was born on February 12, 1929, in Courtenay, North Dakota, to Sidney and Goldie Berg. Bert moved to Snohomish County in May of 1942 and graduated from Everett High School in 1948. When the government called upon his service, he hitchhiked from Everett to San Diego, California and served in the Navy, during the Korean War from 1950-1954. It was during this time that he discovered his passion for the San Francisco 49ers, as he and his shipmates would go to Kezar Stadium and watch the Niner's, when they were being ported. Bert married Natalie Jordan on September 8, 1956 where a bond of everlasting love and friendship was formed. Bert spent many years as an volunteer for the South Everett Lions club, where they did great work helping people in need. He also enjoyed coaching Babe Ruth baseball for the South Everett Lions. Bert enjoyed taking the neighborhood kids to Mukilteo, on Saturday mornings, for some clam digging. Bert and Natalie retired in 1992 and took a four month trip, with many friends, to Arizona and had a great time, with lots of memories. Later they resided at the Mobile Country Club in Everett, where they meet and developed many friendships. Bert will now join his loving wife, Natalie in heaven; and leave behind three sons, Steven (Diane) of Marysville, Mike (Teresa) of Everett, Allen (Ellen) of Ephrata; and their wonderful grand daughter, Candace of Everett and three step grand children. It is very painful and sad to lose both your parents so the family request privacy as they heal their grief.
