  • Bea, Jeff & Angie, sending prayers & hugs! So sorry lose of Kenny. He was a very nice guy. Jan Lashley

  • Our thoughts and prayers are with the Berger family. Kenny was an outstanding young man who I enjoyed coaching at CHS. I was not aware he served his country in the navy, but it didn’t surprise me. May Gods peace be with the entire Berger family. Coach Emmets and Barb

  • My sincere condolences to all Ken’s family. Way too young to be gone from us.
    My memories of Kenny are of an individual who was rock steady, always the same and always always fun to hang around with. He had the distinct misfortune of being with me during my first auto wreck as we rolled my Dad’s pickup on our way to Roger McDonald’s to play pool. Thankfully I was the only one hurt.
    I will always have fond memories of Ken and am looking forward to a reunion in Heaven.

  • Dear Bea and family…there are no words I can say except that I am so sorry. I wish you didn’t have to go through this… praying for you all.
    Kenny no longer needs our prayers, he is perfect now!!!!
    I love you.

  • Bea, Rick and family, Kim and I wish to express our support to you all at this difficult time. I have many fond memories of Kenny when we were growing up. Let us know if there is anything we can do for you.

  • Bea, Rick and family,

    I am keeping you in my prayers and I send my deepest condolences.

  • Keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. May you have God’s peace and comfort in the coming days.

  • I remember Kenny as a teammate on our football team at Centerburg. As a teammate, I remember a rock solid football player who could always deliver the tough yard running the ball or the drive stopping tackle if our opponents dared to run the ball up the middle. As a quiet leader, he was someone we all could count on in any circumstance to deliver. As he was much more than the teammate I remember, I am sure through life, Kenny was counted on by his family and friends as well.
    Blessings to all of the Berger family and may the many, many good memories that you have help you through this time of sorrow.

  • Kenny was one of those rare individuals who liked everyone and everyone liked him. I have many fond memories of him from our youth. He will be missed.

  • Kenny was one of the good guys. I remember him most as a wrestler. He and Bill were my buddies and Kenny was just genuinely kind. How sad to know his life was cut short by this stinking disease. Fly high with the Angels Kenny. You are no longer in pain.

  • I’ve known Kenny since shortly after he served in the Navy. He was a likeable young man. I have known his sons Kristopher and Kaleb since they were born. They are my adopted grandsons. I would like to express my sympathy to his Mom and his children. May God bless you and be with you at this time. You are in my prayers. Love you. Grandma Donna

  • Aaron my friend,

    Heartfelt condolences. You and your family are in my prayers.

  • My deepest condolences to Kenny’s family. I remember Kenny in high school at Centerburg. Kenny was always fun to be around and he was always so kind and down to earth. Kenny will be missed by many, especially his family. My thoughts and prayers are with Kenny now in Heaven and and his family down here on earth.

    Until we meet again

  • Kenny was a recent neighbor of mine. I didn’t know him but I knew he was a good man because he told me he like horses and that on occasion he would feed treets to my two across the street from him. There were always visistors at his home that indicated he was loved immensely. My sympathies to his extended family.

  • To all the Berger family,
    Our sincere sympathy to all. We were lucky to have
    worked with Kenny for several years at Blanchard
    Valley Hospital. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
