I have wonderful and pleasant memories of Vic. Always so kind
with happy thoughts to share. Fred enjoyed time and conversations
with him; they seemed to have a lot to talk about.
You will be missed Vic, but your memory and the happy times
will "linger on"
Rest in Peace. It is our loss but Heaven's gain.

Love and Prayers,
Your Friend, Terry

Dear Rita and family, due to the situation with the virus we thought it best not to attend Vic's viewing but we do want to send our love and deepest sympathy to you and your family.

Your friends from the English Accents Club.

My thoughts & prayers are with all of Mr. Berberich’s family. I’m thankful for the friendship my family had with the Berberich family when I was growing up. Michele & I were friends & all of her siblings were friends with my siblings. We all went to church & school together. I’ll always remember my dad & Mr. Berberich joking with each other whenever they were together. He always called my dad Mr. 5 + 1 instead of Mr. Syx. LOL They are both such good men! Holding you all in my heart as you say your “goodbye for now”.

Mrs Berberich and all the family and friends
I remember your dad most for his infectious smile. He always seemed like a quite man who only spoke when something important or humorous needed to be conveyed.
I’m sure there are pics of both Vic and Rita at events with my mom and dad (Velma and Pat) at either MHC or the K of C in my parents photo albums.
I am so sorry for your loss!! May God and all the Knights who have passed before him (including my dad) welcome Victor home. May they play endless rounds of golf and enjoy the laughter in heaven that they once shared on earth.

Prayers to family and friends of Victor Berberich. He and my father Robert were friends in their teenage years. Story I've been told that Victor was responsible for introducing my mother Jane and father to each other. Hence I am here today. God bless.
