Dean Berger, beloved father, husband, brother, and friend died suddenly on June 26, 2022.
Dean was the most loving and kind person you could ever know. He lived to take care of his family and his friends, of which there were many. Everyone he met was a friend. He was born in Van Nuys, California and lived in Chatsworth or Simi Valley most of his adult life. But that was just his home base, he loved to travel and certainly in his 47 years or more of working in the alcohol and spirits industry he did that. So many people called him friend.
Diane and Dean were married for 47 years, and no one loved him more than Diane. Although like many of us there were times he tried your patience, but it was always because he needed to help a friend. He was always happy and positive and willing to help in any way. He was a great coordinator. He would call on all of his friends to help others he knew could benefit from their expertise.
He was so very proud of his family. His son’s Gregory and Michael were everything to both him and Diane. They have grown up to be such kind and giving adults like their parents. He has also left behind his sisters, sister-in-law, and nieces and nephews that he loved so very much.
There are not enough ways to describe how really special Dean Berger was and what a wonderful and joyful man we have lost in this world. He was a blessing to all of us. Our world will never be the same.
