After attaining his B.S. (Biology/

Mr. Bergmann was a proud and
dedicated Educator devoted to
bettering education and “making
a difference in people’s lives”

coached Pop Warner football,
Little League baseball and girl’s

as coaching high school football,
tennis and swimming teams.
He always said that his greatest
achievement, and the one
closest to his heart, was his
family. He was always so proud
of his children, grand children
and great grand children. Mr.
Bergmann is survived by Bonnie,
his loving wife of 55 years,

Our Father will remain in our
hearts forever. He taught us the
value of pride, honesty, integrity,
determination and hard work,
mental and moral strength as well
as dedication to family. We will
miss his wonderful wit and sense
of humor (“Dad’isms) and his
council. He has greatly enriched
the lives of his family, students,
and all who had the pleasure to
know him.
A private service was held on
2-3-2010 at the Sacramento Valley
