Marital Status: Married since 1980 to Sherri of Monterey, CA
Children: Harrison 4/1/93 and Sophia 12/17/96
Occupation: I own my own Photography Studio, Bruce Berg Photography in Springfield
Comments: I've been fortunate to have had a lot of great experiences. After 4 years overseas in the Air Force (two in Europe where I became a Christian), I got my BS degree in Public Administration from the UO. At this same time I worked for 5 years for United Airlines and got to travel many places from Bora Bora to Israel and from Austrailia to see friends in Europe.
Since 1984, I have been a portrait photographer. In print competitions, I've won Professional Photographers of Oregon, "Photographer of the Year" 3 of the past 5 years and have found a job I truly love. I was on the Springfield City Council for 4 years and helped start the local Habitat for Humanity chapter and the Springfield Filbert Festival. Most of all, I love being a Dad to my two kids. Being a father has got to be one of the best jobs on earth.
With these successes though, come sadness as well. My dad passed away in 1995 and my wife has experienced life-hindering physical problems. These and other events have forced me to continue to focus on what truly is important in this fleeting life . It's taken me awhile to learn that it isn't a career, money, or fame. One of my favorite quotes (because it has become applicable to my life at times) comes from the classic Crime and Punishment by Dostoyevsky, "The darker the night - the brighter the stars; The deeper the grief - the closer is God."
My fondest memories of P.Hill are being in the Ascensions, drama and hanging out with good friends. Last parting quote??? "Goooo Ducks!"

Eugene, Oregon (near downtown)
Marital Status: Single (engaged once but she didn't like sports)
Comments: I am still a huge University of Oregon sports fan, love walking biking, local history, old movies, trivia and I have to be honest -- at our 30th Reunion and the reason why I didn't show -- I stated I had the flu???? uhh, No, I, at the time, was a very much full-time drinker and that's why I didn't show up.
Now I have been sober since 2003 and am very happy. The night before Thanksgiving 2003 sometime before midnight, I was through drinking and have been sober ever since. By the grace of God.
I have been a DJ and sportscaster and a PA announcer at NCU doing volleyball and both ladies' and men's basketball.
I worked through the years at the following. (Hold on, have to remember): KNND, KUGN, KORE, KATR, KBDF, Magic 94, New Country 93
Yeah, what a great stable business. Ha ha it's really not. People move a lot in that crazy bizz...
GLAD EVERY ONE IS WELL
(Yeah, from a guy who wasn't all that out-going and then ???? BINGO from sportscaster to DJ--who would have thunk it????
