Lenard “Bergie” George Bergstrom
September 14, 1930 – August 30, 2015
Bergie was predeceased by his parents Eva and Knute Bergstrom; his brothers Gerald Bergstrom and Arnold Bergstrom and his special friend Mona Hayden. He is survived by his son Dwight Bergstrom (Pat Weir); granddaughter Raegan Bergstrom Mitchell (Aaron); grandson Matthew Bergstrom (Shannon); great grandson Aksel; grandson Luke Bergstrom; granddaughter Sarah Bergstrom; his daughter Dixie Tuck ne: Bergstrom (Lorne); granddaughter Erin Thomlison Tuck (Jason); great grandson William Thomlison; great grandson Thomas Thomlison; granddaughter Kelly Gemmell (Jake); great granddaughter Elizabeth Gemmell; great granddaughter Samantha Gemmell; grandson Ryan Tuck (Katie); great granddaughter Sophie; daughters of his heart Gwen and Carolyn Hayden. Bergie was born and raised in Prince Albert, but was a summer resident of Waskesiu for almost 50 years. Upon retirement from the Pulp Mill in 1995 Bergie lived as much as he could at Waskesiu where he pursued his passion for golf and life. He became, as some people would say, a Waskesiu icon. In his last days he appreciated all the support he received from friends and family. In his memory the family requests that everyone wear their favourite golf attire to his Celebration of Life. Celebration of Life will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, September 4, 2015 at Wesley United Church, 65 – 11th Street East, Prince Albert, SK with Reverend Tony Thompson officiating. In lieu of other tributes, memorial donations can be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Saskatchewan, 279 – 3rd Avenue N., Saskatoon, SK S7K 2H8 or Global Neighbors Canada Inc., RR5, Site 21, Box 30, Prince Albert, SK S6V 5R3.
