Donald Franz Berg

"A Beloved Man" On July 31, 2005, Don passed away peacefully in his sleep. Don was born on February 11, 1919 to Vinnie Edlund Berg (deceased 1991) and Franz Eugene Berg (deceased 1939) in Murray.

He was a proud graduate of South High School and the LDS Business College. He was in the Army during World War II and served in Guam and Okinawa where he sustained several injuries deserving of a Purple Heart, but refused to accept it because many others had greater losses. At the end of the war, he returned to his mother and sister in Salt Lake City and started his own construction company. Over the years he has built some of the finest homes in the valley. He was a great historian of the developing changes in the valley. He was a very avid lifelong baseball and basketball fan. He has always helped, supported and dedicated his life to his family.

He is survived by his only sister Jean Berg; a Niece, Tamera, Nephews, Dr. Kevin Underwood and Dr. Rock Underwood and all of their families. Even though he never had children of his own, he loved, supported, cared, and guided for his niece and nephews as a dedicated, loving father figure. He is also survived by many cousins and very dear people who had a special part in his life and a permanent place in his heart especially Catherine Reiber, Willie and Vione Stoler, and Rich Bingham, and Sylvia Mucha; as well as, all those who have been touched by his personality and kindness.

May he be comforted by God and continue to guide all of us.

A viewing will be held Saturday, August 6, 2005 from 12-12:45 p.m. at Jenkins-Soffe Mortuary, 4760 South State Street. Graveside services will begin at 1:30 p.m. at Murray City Cemetery, 5600 So. Vine Street.
