It is with heavy hearts and great sadness that we announce the sudden and unexpected passing of James Berg on Thursday December 23rd, 2021, at the age of 53. Gone too soon, James was called into the arms of his Lord. James was a loving and caring husband, father, son, brother, and great friend to everyone he met. James will be forever loved and dearly missed by his wife of 29 years Carolyn and his three children Mackenzie, Madison, and Mitchell; his father Henry and his mother, the late Irene Berg (1984); his siblings Judy (Don) Bateman, Sharon Berg, Carolyn (Darryl) Mathieson, and Brian Berg; his sister-in-law Linda (Karl) Friesen, brothers-in-law Harry (Carolyn) Loewen and Greg (Jennifer) Loewen, his nieces and nephews, family, friends, and everyone in the community.
James truly was a man of many hats. He was a handyman, fixing and building his dreams into reality, a commercial painter, real estate agent, purchaser at Bosch Rexroth and finally a Quartermaster for the Niagara Regional Police. James was selfless with his time and spent countless hours volunteering and contributing to his community.
James cherished every aspect of life from work to friends, sports and most importantly his family. He enjoyed spending time and making memories with his family and friends. He loved to be at his family’s cottage, where his greatest talent was water skiing or using the board. James loved to plan family vacations where spending time together was his utmost priority. James was very supportive of his children in every passion they had. Whether sports, school, or extra curricular clubs, he was always there. James knew someone everywhere he went, was best at the name game, and made a lasting impression on everyone he encountered.
James was a man of faith and knew that when his time would come the Lord had a place in his home for him. Until we meet again in his arms, may we always remember him.
