On June 16, 1967, Warren married Jeanne Schull in LaBolt, SD.  Warren was deployed to Vietnam later that same month.  He returned home in 1968 where he raised cattle near LaBolt and later made their home in Strandburg, SD. 

Warren's journey was marked by valor and compassion. As an Army veteran, he served his country with honor, embodying the spirit of duty and sacrifice. His commitment to service extended beyond his military years, as he continued to serve his community and loved ones.  He would help organize the 591st Engineering Company reunions which always brought him joy to be with his other “brothers”. 

Warren's love for family was evident as a devoted husband, standing by his wife through thick and thin, especially after she endured a stroke, demonstrating patience, tenderness, and resilience in caretaking. As a father and grandfather, Warren's presence was full of warmth and laughter, his sense of humor creating countless cherished memories. 

Beyond his roles within the family, Warren was known for his competitive/fun loving spirit. A passionate softball player, he brought enthusiasm and camaraderie to the field, leaving a lasting impression on teammates and opponents alike. His quick wit and playful humor made him a cherished friend and companion, always ready with a joke or a kind word to brighten someone's day. 

Warren's love for the simple pleasures of life was evident to all who knew him. He never missed a chance to have coffee with his buddies, fostering connections and building bonds that lasted a lifetime. Warren Berg leaves behind a legacy of love, laughter, and compassion that will continue to inspire and uplift us for generations to come. May his memory be a blessing to us all.
