Mark C. Berg, son of Albert & Julia Berg, was born July 4, 1932. He was raised on a farm near Clements, MN. Mark served in the Army in the Korean War and received an honorable discharge October 1960. After his service in the army, he learned the craftsman art of plastering and then started Berg Brothers Plastering in Gaylord, MN along with his younger brother Tyrone. He later moved to Camano Island, WA and purchased a home where he could work on old cars, raise chickens and enjoy nature outside his backdoor. All of this brought Mark great joy. He loved hunting, nature and watching sports. Hard work was a virtue of Mark’s. He maintained his hard work ethic, tough exterior, fighting spirit and sense of humor to the very end.
