Thomas Berny

February 23, 1957 ~ February 26, 2019 (age 62)


Thomas Robert Berny. Tom was born February 23rd, 1957 and passed away peacefully at home in Blackduck, Minnesota on February 26th, 2019 at the age of 62. Tom loved everything about cars, from racing them in his earlier years to restoring and fixing them. He worked for many years as an auto machinist.

An avid outdoorsman, he loved hunting and especially fishing. He took his beloved dogs, Chinook and Pongo for walks in Bemidji state park almost daily. In the cold Northern Minnesota winters he would put out over 60 pounds of corn each day for deer and enjoyed their comings and goings.

Throughout his life, he enjoyed music, especially great rock bands, and faithfully followed all Minnesota sports teams. It’s not likely he missed watching a Twins game in the last decades of his life. He is preceded in death by his parents, Bob and Joyce; and his sister, Tris (Patricia Berny).

He is lovingly remembered by his sister, Mary Plehal;brother-In-Law, Joe; nieces: Katie and Tachney Ruprecht; many friends and relatives.
