Craig A. Berg, 51

Craig A. Berg, 51, of Owatonna, Minnesota, died on Saturday, April 8, 2017, following a hard-fought battle against cancer.

Craig was born on Nov. 28, 1965, the youngest of four children to Bob Berg and Sharon Berg. Craig was raised in Owatonna and graduated from the Owatonna High School in 1984. An excellent singer and actor, it was shortly after graduation when he immersed himself in theater. He went on to star in and direct dozens of plays throughout his life and up until his passing. Craig will always be remembered as an avid sports fan, and is lovingly referred to as “the bread man” after a lengthy career delivering bread. His infectious smile and kind heart were the cogs that brought many people together.

Craig is survived by his father, Bob (Punk) Berg of Austin, Minnesota; his sister, Paula (Craig) Ulrich of Owatonna; two brothers, Jeff Berg, and Gary (Dawn) Berg, both of Owatonna; step-sister Mandy Penrod of Austin; two nieces, Nichole (Tim) Braithwait and Samantha (Travis) Ahrens; nephew, Derrick Berg; two great-nieces; four great-nephews; as well as many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
