The entire Widener Law Community extends heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Gary Dennis Berg, who passed away on July 7, 2011 following a two-year battle with cancer.

A 2004 graduate of Widener Law, Gary joined the Veterans Law Clinic as a staff attorney in early 2008, and he spent the next several years working with veterans who needed legal help with VA claims.

Born in Wilmington, Delaware,  Gary D. Berg graduated from Brandywine High School in 1968. Before attending law school, he worked for many years as a special education teacher in northern Delaware. He is survived by his wife, Maria, as well as two daughters, a son-in-law, two brothers, and two grandchildren.

Contributions in memory of Gary can be sent to the Cancer Treatment Center of America, 1331 E. Wyoming Ave. Philadelphia, PA 19124.
