Richard “Dick” Berg, 73, passed away peacefully on April 23rd at Cloverhill Senior Living Facility, where he has been living for the past 3 years. He was born December 28, 1949 in Dover, NJ to Raymond and Vivian Berg. 


He met Donna Hemenway during their undergraduate studies at Maryville College. They married and graduated the same weekend in May 1971 and spent the subsequent fifty-two years building a beautiful family together.


He spent his life building and growing things, creating things wherever they were needed.  His workshop and garden were places of pride. He designed and built them their dream home in Maryville, TN.


For over 2 decades he led BSA Troop 888, out of Fairview UMC, as Scoutmaster. He helped nurture many young men into maturity and achieving the rank of Eagle. He helped instill a love of outdoors to all the youth who went through his Troop.


In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by his sister, Karin Stracco and brother, Bryan Berg.  


Left to cherish his memory are his wife, Donna, son Brandon (Karoline) of Norris, TN, and daughter, Heidi of Maryville, his 6 adoring grandchildren: Noah, Sarah, and Rebekah Berg, and Phillip, Joseph, and Daniel Truett. Surviving siblings include: Kathy (Bob) Still, Alan (Linda) Berg, Eric (Lisa) Berg, Glen (Judy) Berg; and a plethora of nieces and nephews.  


The family would like to thank the entire staff at Cloverhill Senior Living for the patient and loving care they provided for Dick.
