With sorrow, the family announces the passing of Doug Berg at 90 years of age. Doug was born in Delia, Alberta. After serving overseas with the RCAF in WWII, he returned in 1946 to reside in Calgary where he met his wife Lillie. They were married for 54 years. During this time he worked for the Calgary Herald in various positions for 34 years. In 1964 they had one son named Alan. There are very fond memories of family vacations with friends in Priest Lake, Idaho and later in central Alberta where he built and maintained a log cabin. In 1992 Doug and Lillie moved to a retirement condo in northwest Calgary where they enjoyed many years of playing cards, pool and Saturday morning coffee parties. Doug was predeceased by his wife Lillie in 2005. Doug moved to Vernon, BC in September 2010 to be closer to family and spend time with his granddaughter Hailey who made him smile and laugh each day. They loved to colour, play and tell stories. Doug leaves many loving memories to be cherished by his son Alan, daughter-in-law Patty and granddaughter Hailey. A Celebration of Doug's Life will be held Thursday, September 6 at 2:00 p.m. at Calgary Crematorium at 3219 - 4 Street N.W., Calgary, AB. If friends so desire, in lieu of flowers, memorial tributes in Doug's honour may be made directly to the Heart & Stroke Foundation or the Kidney Foundation of Canada. Special thanks to the staff at Creekside Landing.
