He was born May 31, 1955, in Enid, Oklahoma, to Robert L. and Etta Mae Bergman. His parents moved to Boulder when he was eight years old, then later moved to Glenwood Springs.

He moved to Kansas City in 1978, received his associate’s degree in marketing and management from Johnson County Community College. He graduated with honors from Webster University in 1999 with a bachelor’s degree in business administration with an emphasis in computer applications.

His two daughters were the lights of his life.

At the time of his death, he was working for Citicard as a customer service representative.

He married Elizabeth Bergman in 1994, and they enjoyed traveling across the United States, Mexico and Canada, and recently went on several cruises.
