Harley Berge

harley berge

Harley Berge was born to Jeffrey Berge and Lori Bennett Peasley on February 14, 1980 in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota. He attended school in Detroit Lakes and Pelican Rapids, graduating from Detroit Lakes High School in 1998.  While Harley held a variety of jobs during and after high school, his happiest positions included driving semis. He was employed as a truck driver by Farner-Bocken since 2011 until he retired in April, 2013 due to health concerns.

Harley had a deep faith in his religion and an unshakeable love for his wife and two sons. When not working, he enjoyed playing with the boys and teaching them how to fish and work on vehicles. He was an avid motorcyclist and took great pride in his Harley Davidson bike.  Everyone who met Harley walked away with a new friend; he was a beautiful person with an even more wonderful soul. He was taken from those who loved him far too soon, but as long as they remember him and try to live the life he exemplified, he will not be forgotten.

Harley is survived by his wife, Vanessa, at home; his 2 sons,  Brandon Berge and Jeremey  Henderson; his father, Jeff Berge (Michelle) Minot, ND and his mother, Lori Peasley Bennett , Moorhead, MN; his brother, Aaron Berge, Moorhead; and grandparents, Bob and Joyce Bennett, Wendell, MN. Harley is also survived by his best friend of 25+ years, Corey Wasfaret.
