Harry John Berger, 95, of Oshoto, WY, died Sunday, Nov. 14, 2010 at Dorsett Regional Senior Care in Spearfish, SD. Funeral services were held at 2 p.m., Friday, Nov. 19, 2010 at the Oshoto Community Bible Church. Burial followed at Pine Grove Cemetery. Memorials may be directed to benefit a charity of one’s choice.
Harry was born in Moorcroft, WY on July 26, 1915, the only child of John and Minnie (Heumier) Berger. He lived his life as a rancher at Oshoto and was married to Montana Virginia Wagoner on March 15, 1934. Montana preceded him in death on May 18, 2005, but they were perfectly matched and shared a love of ranching, horses and dogs.
Harry was a man of good cheer and great integrity, for him, his word was his bond. One of the last of the old time ranchers, Harry lived through some of the most interesting time and saw life on the open range change with modern technology and experienced the rigors of ranching from every standpoint.
He is survived by his sons: Jerry Allen Berger and Larry Gene Berger; Larry’s wife, Sara, and their children, April R. Berger, Robert Lee Berger and John Henry Berger; son-in-law, Donald W. Proctor and his sons, Jimmy Dale (Pam) Proctor and their son Trent and Jay Dee (Kim) Proctor and their son Peyton. Harry’s beloved daughter, Virginia Gail Proctor, preceded him in death.
