Marcus Richard Berg passed away June 8, 2013 due to complications following a liver biopsy.
He was born to Rick and Mona Berg on Sept. 5, 1982 in Duluth, Minn., graduated from Esko High School in 2001, and the University of St. Thomas, St. Paul in 2005 with a Bachelor’s degree in Communications.
Marc is survived by his father Rick Berg; mother Mona Berg; sister Jillian Nelson, her husband Marvin, and their son, Charlie; grandmother Lois Berg, and grandparents Joe and Joanne Vekich.
Family was especially important to Marc and he adored spending time with all of his aunts, uncles, and cousins. Because of his constant sense of adventure, the youngest family members always held a special place in his heart.
He will always be remembered and loved by his cousins Natalie (7) and Cason (5) Pitrago, and Emma (5) “Emmster” Paulbeck, for the endless fun he brought to their lives. Marc was thrilled to be there for the birth and first few weeks of his nephew Charlie’s life, and we are thankful he will carry on Marc’s loving and passionate spirit.
Marc loved drumming, ski trips with his dad, concerts, and performing with his many bands. He had a rare ability to bring people together from all walks of life and showed us all how to enjoy life to the fullest.
His family will always feel blessed by the outpouring of support shown by friends and family, many of who traveled at a moments notice from all parts of the country, to spend time with him during his final days. It was a true testament to how well he loved others and what an impact he had on everyone he met.
Rick and Mona are especially grateful that Marc had Lindsey Thudin in his life since the day he fell in love with her in second grade.
VISITATION: 5-7 p.m. on Friday, June 14. Funeral Service 2 p.m. Saturday, June 15 with visitation one hour prior all at the Cloquet Gospel Tabernacle, 1400 Washington Ave.
