Gustaf Adolf Georg Bergqvist
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Feb. 23, 1888
Death: Dec. 28, 1962

Gustaf Bergqvist, son of Olof and Johanna also in this grave, was a bachelor all his life. During WW2 he was stationed as a guard against the possibility of air attacks on the important Domnarv Bridge in Borlänge. He is remembered as a very amicable person who often visited his relatives, even farther outside of town in Gimsbärke. One of his favorite pastimes was berry picking in the woods, and it was considered that he knew all the best places. Some doubt was cast upon his good sense of location, however, when he once got lost in the woods and was out all night. Relatives had to form a search party, and it wasn't until one of them shot a blast from a shotgun that Gustaf heard it and was able to find his way back.
