Rodney Berg

Apr 10, 2021

Aug. 27, 1940 – Apr. 3, 2021

Rodney Berg, the son of

Thomas and Myrtle

(Brynteson) Berg was born

on August 27, 1940. He

died at the age of 80 years

on Saturday, April 3, 2021

at the Heart of America

Medical Center in Rugby,

North Dakota.

Rodney was raised on

the family farm near

Rolette. He attended

school at Dewey #2 and

after completing his edu-

cation, he went to work

on the farm. Farming be-

came his life, which he

worked hard at and had a

love for the land. On June

6, 1966, he was united in

marriage to Jeanne

Tuchscherer at Little

Flower Catholic Church

in Rugby. The couple

made their home and

started their family on his

family farm near Rolette.

In 1976, the family moved

to the Tuchscherer family

farm in Walsh Township

near Rugby. His hard

work led him to retire at

the age of 60. Rodney and

Jeanne enjoyed traveling

to many places including

Norway, Alaska and Gla-

cier. They also made

numerous trips to watch

their grandchildren in

their sporting events and

were their biggest fans!

Jeanne fought a coura-

geous battle with cancer

and died in 2013. Rodney

was a founding member

of the Rugby Eagle’s,

served on the Cenex

board for 12 years and

volunteered at Medora

and was known as “the

Popcorn Man” at the

Heart of America Medical

Center where he would

hand out popcorn. He en-

joyed ice fishing, driving

around the countryside

and helping Gary Haman

farm and harvest up until

last year. He will be great-

ly missed by his family,

grandchildren, who he

was so proud of, and


Rodney is survived by

his daughter, Christie

Lang of Minot; sons,

Curtis (Traci) of Brush,

Colorado and Joel (Ash-

ley) of Rugby; grandchil-
