The foundation mourns the loss of the former chairman of its board of directors, Harley Bergmeyer. Harley was kind-hearted, caring, committed and a consummate gentleman. He cherished his years of volunteer service with the foundation. As evidence of this, at events where the foundation staff was asked to stand, Harley would stand. The foundation awarded its top volunteer service award to Harley in 2012.
Harley died Sept 26, 2015 of cancer. The foundation mourns his loss, and extends its condolences to Harley’s wife, Marcia, and the entire Bergmeyer family.
The family has requested memorials in lieu of flowers to Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church in Clatonia, Nebraska; Wilber Nebraska Fire and Rescue; or the University of Nebraska Foundation. When giving online, please make sure to select “Memorial gift” on the donation form.
