Darrell Edward Berg, age 73 of Austin, Minnesota, passed away peacefully Friday morning, February 16, 2018, surrounded by his loving family at Mayo Clinic Health System in Austin. On September 24, 1944, Darrell was born to Philip and Gladys (Brechtel) Berg in Austin. Darrell was a lifelong Austin resident. He grew up in Austin and graduated from Austin High School in 1962. On July 17, 1964, he was united in marriage to Rose Frasher at the Conservative Congregational Church in Hollandale, Minnesota. To this union, four children were born. Darrell was employed by Westman Silo in Hayward, Golden Dairy, Marigold Dairy, Ankeny’s in Austin, and then for over thirty years with Sampson Dairy Foods in Albert Lea.  After his retirement, Darrell worked as a delivery driver for HyVee in Austin.  He was a member of St. Olaf Lutheran Church.  He enjoyed hunting and fishing, taking care of his yard, was a master griller, and enjoyed family gatherings.

His warmth, generosity, and smile will forever live on in our hearts.
