George Berglund was born on April 27, 1929 in Chicago, Illinois, son of Oscar and Magda (Soderstrom) Berglund.

On September 20, 1952 he was united in marriage to his loving wife Betty Jane Rads at Pilgrim Church in Chicago and they were blessed with 65 years together. He was a loving father and grandfather who lived his life in pursuit of his familys happiness and success.

After graduating from Lane Technical High School, George served his country in the United States Army Signal Corps and was a member of the Masons, and active as a Boy Scout Leader. He worked for Illinois Bell Telephone for 42 years and was an active member of his community in Chicago, and later in Plainfield, Illinois, as well. He and Betty then moved to Iowa to be nearer to family when health reasons for both prevented them from continuing to live on their own.

Left to cherish his memory are his two children Kenneth (Christine) Berglund of Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, and Cindy (Bob) Sarver of Leland, Iowa. George is also survived by his four grandchildren Matthew (Becky) Berglund of Albany, Oregon, Amanda Berglund of Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, Jessica (Kent) Poulsen of Aurora, Illinois, and Bobby (Robyn) Sarver, of Dubuque, Iowa and one great-granddaughter Sabina Berglund, also of Albany, Oregon.

He was preceded in death by his parents and his sister Ruth Durr.
