Jack Berg

April 1, 1954 – Dec. 19, 2017

Homer resident, Mr. Jack Berg, 63, died Friday, Dec. 19, 2017 at his home in Homer.

No services will be held at this time.

Mr. Berg was born April 1, 1954 in Jamestown, New York. He graduated from Maple Grove High School in Bemus Point, New York. Jack moved to Homer in April of 2004. When he first came to Alaska, he worked several years as a deckhand. He also worked for many years at the Sport Shed on the Homer Spit. Jack loved to fish. He was a true Alaskan who loved the outdoors, hunting and fishing.

The family wrote, “Jack was the love of my life, my best friend and wonderful father to ‘Our Boys.’ He had taken wonderful care of me in the past four years through my health issues – and continued to do so up ‘till two days before he passed. We had 25 years of happiness and when we moved to Alaska in 2004, Jack was already in Heaven. He had all the fishing and hunting he could ask for. I am absolutely heart broken and want to thank all our family and friends for their support.”

He was preceded in death by his parents and his brother, Robert Berg.

He is survived by his wife, Karen Anderson of Homer; sons, Jason (Heather) Anderson of Rocky Mount, North Carolina and Patrick (Laura) Anderson of Wesley Chapel, Florida; and six grandchildren.
