Obituary of Floyd Edward Berg

Floyd Edward Berg

April 21, 1932 – February 13, 2022

Floyd was born on the family farm near Laird, SK on April 21, 1932. Floyd’s school years were spent in Laird till Grade 8. He worked helping his parents with the livery barn, the butcher shop, and then later with the dray. The family moved to Belbutte in 1955, and Floyd stayed working in Saskatoon at that time. Within a few years, he moved to Belbutte to settle down and farm.  In 1956 he met Dora Viberg, and they were married by 1958.  They had two children. Kevin was born in 1959, and Kim followed in 1960.  Horses, cattle, and pigs were part of their farming.  They attended the Belbutte Church, and when Mr. Schalm retired from pastoring, Floyd was asked to pastor the church.  Floyd pastored in the church for more than 50 years.  He held services at Spiritwood and Leoville Lodges for many years. In 1978, Floyd along with many volunteers, helped start the Timberline Bible Camp with Mr. Arneson from Battleford. After retirement, Dora and Floyd took many trips to BC to visit family, travelling across Canada, and to PEI and the USA. But the best trip was to Alaska. In Europe, they visited 10 countries and he had the chance to drive the autobahn.  His pride and joy were his grandchildren: Tessa-Rae, Cole, Clay, and Reed.  Floyd spent everyday reading and studying the Bible that followed with prayer.  He left us the following lessons by how he lived:  Accept who you are and your limitations, you trusting God is enough.  Be loyal to your friends and family and be there when needed, no questions asked. One of his favorite Bible passages: Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths. Proverbs 3:5-6

Floyd is lovingly remembered by his wife: Dora Berg, his children: Kevin (Natalie) Berg of Spiritwood, SK and family: Clay Berg (Robyn Voldeng) and Reed Berg, Kim (Ricky) Omelchenko of Saskatoon, SK and family: Tessa-Rae Nedelec (Aaron Kaliszewski) and Cole Omelchenko also numerous nieces, nephews, and other relatives.
