Obituary, Middleburg (VA) Eccentric of 22 Jan-26 Feb 2015.
Middleburg has lost another of its World War II veterans with the passing of Andrew (Andy) Bergner, age 88. An active participant in Town events, Bergner served as President of the Middleburg Lions Club; treasurer of The Pink Box Visitor's Center; and on the Board of the Seven Loaves Food Bank. For many years he could be seen on the steps of Windsor House as Town Crier announcing the arrival of the hounds during Christmas in Middleburg. A Philadelphia, Pa. native, Bergner served in General Patton's Third Army in Germany during World War II. His war experiences are documented in a book titled, "Just Call Me Soldier Boy." For his service in Europe he earned a Bronce Star but in the haste to return GIs the civilian life, Bergner somehow wasn't notified of the honor. His children discovered it while researching the book, and realizing the mistake, the Army presented the Bronze Star to Private First Class Bergner, Retired, in a military ceremony at the Middleburg VFW Hall on Veterans Day 2013. Bergner attended Villanova University on the GI bill earning a BA in Mechanical Engineering and later a Masters Degree in Engineering Management from Hofstra University. He married his beloved wife Audrey in 1951 and was soon hired by the General Electric Company, Aerospace Division. [Portion omitted] His marriage to Audrey resulted in five living children: Douglas (Diana) and Kevin Scott (Mary Lou) both of Scottsdale, Az.; Pamela (Brant) Candelore of Rancho Bernardo, Ca.; Kenneth (Arlene) of Unison, Va.; and Laurie Anne Maggiano of Middleburg. Mr. Bergner also leaves twelve grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. A Celebration of Life will be held at Emmanuel Episcopal Church on E. Washington Street, Middleburg on Saturday, february 14, 2015 at 2 o'clock.
Children: Douglas Andrew (1952), Laurie Anne (1954), Kevin Scott (1956), Pamela Amelia (1958), Kenneth Windsor (1960).
