DODGEVILLE – Daniel L. “D” “Berger” Berg, age 34, of Dodgeville, passed away of complications from propionic acidemia on Saturday, Dec. 3, 2016, at UW Hospital. Dan was born on March 6, 1982, in Dodgeville, to David and Shaya (Bach) Berg.
He was a 2002 graduate of the Dodgeville High School where he was Homecoming King and remained a lifelong Dodgers fan. Dan was a participant of the Special Olympics, where he and his team won the Wisconsin State Special Olympics Bowling Championship. He loved NASCAR and all Wisconsin sports, attending many Brewers and Badgers games during his 14 years at the Hodan Center. He got to see the Packers play in Lambeau Field and attended a NASCAR race at Michigan International Speedway. His favorite thing to do was go four-wheeling; followed closely by fishing, camping, sitting around the camp fire, listening to country music, and watching Monday Night Raw. Dan enjoyed working on various vehicles with his father and brother-in-law. He was also the self-appointed supervisor of the new family home being built. He could often be heard saying the phrase “give it a shot.” When he wasn’t complaining about his niece and nephew, you could find him having Nerf gun battles, building with Legos, or playing video games with them. With the unquestionable gift of gab, Dan was able to capture the hearts and minds of anyone and everyone he met. He will truly be missed by all.
Dan is survived by his parents, David and Shaya Berg of Dodgeville; two sisters, Sarah (Mike) Campbell of Richland Center and Nina Berg of Madison; his niece and nephew, Olivia and Andrew Campbell; family dog, Teyha; as well as aunts, uncles, cousins, and countless friends.
Memorial services will be held at 5 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 9, 2016, at the LULLOFF-PETERSON-HOUCK FUNERAL HOME in Dodgeville with Monsignor Daniel Ganshert officiating. Friends may call at the funeral home on Friday after 1 p.m. Memorials may be made to the Hodan Center in lieu of flowers.
