John M. Berg


John Myron Berg, 70, of Blair, died Tuesday, August 17, 2021, in his home, surrounded by his grandsons.

John was born July 24, 1951, in Whitehall, to Myron and Carol (Tidquist) Berg. He married Kathy Obieglo, April 24, 1971, at Saint Ansgar’s Catholic Church in Blair.

John loved hunting, fishing and spending time with his sons. He always looked forward to their visits. John also enjoyed watching the Badgers, Brewers and Packers. He was well known for sharing his fish catches and his veggies with all of those that didn’t have the ability to do it themselves. John also took pride in the Blair-Preston Fire Department as a retired member and helped with many events they held. He also took pride in helping the Blair Sportsmen’s Club with many events.

John is survived by his wife, Kathy; two sons: Matt (Tammy) of Blair and Nate (Natalie) of Brainerd, MN; two grandsons: Caleb and Colyn; two brothers, Mike and Kennedy Berg; three sisters: Catherine Hertzfeldt, Roxy (Allen) Tranberg and Sue (Bob) Tranberg; and an uncle, Gary Tidquist; and many nieces, nephews and cousins.

In addition to his parents, John was preceded in death by his father-in-law, Tony Obieglo; mother-in-law, Angeline (Lyga) Obieglo; and brother-in-law, Donald Hertzfeldt.

A memorial service will be held Saturday, August 28, 2021, at 1:00 p.m., at the Preston Town Hall, 1102 E. Broadway, on the east end of Blair. John’s niece, Mindy Johnson, will officiate.

Friends may call one hour prior to the service and a Celebration of Life will be held after the funeral.

As John was a big time sports fan, please feel free to wear your Badgers, Brewers or Packers clothing, and by all means, dress comfortably because he hated to dress up!

Jack Funeral Home in Blair is assisting the family with arrangements.
