Obituary

David M. Bergman    

Mar. 18, 1950 - Nov. 21, 2021

It is with great sorrow, mixed with gratitude of a life well lived, that the family of David M. Bergman announce his passing at the St. Boniface Hospital on Nov. 21, 2021. David died peacefully with his wife and boys beside him.

He was a loving husband of 52 years to his wife Mary Anne (nee Keller); Dad to his 4 sons and families David (Mandi), Karl (Tammy), Chris (Kim) and Joe (Laura); and Afi to his grandchildren Dylan, Sadie, Haley, Kole, Destiny, Tristan, Johannes, Kyler, Krewyn, Ethan and Jace.  He will be missed by his sister Lorraine (Arnie); brothers Ken and Rich; sister-in-law Mary along with in-laws, Rich (Betty), Carol, Ken (Jane), Albert, Sylvia (Luke), and Lynne and many nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.

 

David was predeceased by his parents Joe and Sella Bergman; brother Ray; Mary Anne's parents Rudolph and Leona Keller; in-laws Martin and Bernice.

 

David and Mary Anne married on April 18, 1970. They began their married life on the Keller family farm, and lived there the rest of his life. Together they raised their four sons. David had a special relationship with each of his 11 grandchildren. Afi always made time for all of them and always enjoyed having them around.

 

David loved farming, the animals, working on his fields and ‘moving dirt’ whenever he could. (Any reason to get on the tractors and ride). When he semi-retired recently, he learned the zero turn lawn mower (tractor) could go just about anywhere and so he claimed another couple acres of yard to cut.

 

Another favourite pastime was his love of hunting. He would spend countless hours searching for the ultimate buck only to shoot the first one or two ish that came across his scope, then of course getting one of his boys to come help him retrieve it/them. He had even earned himself the nickname of Rambo after one very successful hunt. Although, it won't be the same without you, happy hunting Dad!

 

He loved watching his kids do what they loved. He spent many hours in the rinks of Manitoba watching his boys play hockey. Or maybe more so supervising the referee’s. He could walk into any rink and be welcomed by someone in any given town. A testament to how easy going and sociable he was. He had a comment about everything and anything and every stranger was a new friend.

 

One of his purposes in life was to help others. If you hit rock bottom he was right there to help guide you out. Anytime, anywhere, he was willing to drop everything and be there for you. Numerous people have changed how they live their lives with his help. He was a rock for so many people.

                   


 

IN OUR HEARTS FOREVER                   

 You did your best to stay with us for as long as you could.    We will always love you.

REST IN PEACE

 

Lo, there do I see my Father,

Lo, there do I see my Mother,

Lo, there do I see my Brother.

Lo there do I see the line of my people back to the beginning.

They bid me take my seat amongst them, in the halls of Valhalla.
