Gary Oscar Bergstrom, age 76, of Temple passed away Sunday, January 16, 2022, at Baylor Scott & White Hospital from complications due to COVID-19. Gary was born September 4, 1945, in St. Cloud, Minnesota, to Oscar and Lorraine Bergstrom. He married his best friend Gayle Fuchs on September 9, 1967. He was a very proud father and grandfather. He moved to Texas in 1979 with Skyline Homes. He worked in the Manufactured Home Industry for 31 years, working as a Sales Rep and then a Sales Manager for both Fleetwood Homes and Clayton Homes. He won several awards from both companies for his leadership abilities. His hobby and passion was carpentry building, designing and remodeling. His design ideas went into many of the homes built by Clayton Homes. Gary had an amazing sense of humor and an easy smile. His caring loving personality won him many friends. He loved his family and always put them first.
