Charles O'Neil Berget
Charles O'Neil Berget, 81, passed away on December 6, 2018, in Libby, surrounded by his loving family at Cabinet Peaks Medical Center. A Celebration of Life will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, January 5 at Christ Lutheran Church in Libby.

He was born on April 2, 1937, in Turtle Lake, North Dakota, to Ranold and Clarissa Berget.

After serving in the Army National Guard, Charlie married Janice Johnson. They had three children Anthony (Tony), Todd and Tawndi.

The young family came to Libby in 1965. Charlie had many jobs in the timber industry, including working on logging sites, driving logging truck and spending more than 25 years with St. Regis/Champion working in various parts of the mill.

Work was Charlie's hobby. So in his spare time, he enjoyed developing property and became a well driller. He loved all the challenges and problem solving that came with well drilling. He seemed to find a sense of satisfaction in helping people get their well established. This was the career he could never really retire from.

Charlie's family will always cherish his very generous spirit. He was always ready to help someone in need, whether it was by providing work to someone down on his luck, or plowing the neighbors out in winter. He was always willing to help.

But the absolute joy of Charlie's life were his eight grandchildren. He loved to tease them with nicknames and outrageous ideas. His grandchildren also adored their grandfather and have many stories of grandpa's adventures and misadventures.

We will all miss his mischievous sense of humor and unconditional love.

Charlie is survived by his wife, Janice, his children and in laws Tony (Tricia), Todd (Donna) and Tawndi (Zak), DeAnna, grandchildren Trista, Charlie, Kody, Dylan, Annie, Kacie, Halle and Kate, siblings Rueben, Russell, Roselyn, Larry, Corrine, Mary Ann and Ronnie, and many neighbors and friends.

The family asks that this Christmas you provide an act of unexpected kindness for someone in memory of Charlie.

Arrangements are by Schnackenberg Funeral Home in Libby. Online condolences and memories may be shared at www.schnackenbergfh.com.
