John G. Berglund took his final breath Sunday afternoon with his family at his bedside. He was 60. A life-long resident of Kansas City, Missouri, John was a graduate of North Kansas City High School. Over the years John was employed by a variety of local businesses including Mr. Steak Restaurant, RL Polk, and Food for Less Grocery Store. John was something of an expert in local trivia and nostalgia, often able to recall many obscure and interesting facts relative to local personalities, locales, and events. While he tended to be more of a Kansas City A's fan and enjoyed old Municipal Stadium he also enjoyed All-Star wrestling and politics. One of his favorite activities was to listen to the radio, being particularly fond of Mike Murphy and Walt Bodine. John also very much enjoyed having a soda and commiserating with the locals at his two favorite haunts, Dirk's and Arthur's in the Northland, where he was known as "Bubba" .
He is survived by his brothers Mark C. Berglund and Joseph L. Berglund, sisters-in-law Merlie and Allison, nieces Laura, Kendra and Emma and nephews Kenneth, Joseph and Cole. If you are so inclined please consider a memorial on behalf of John to either Kansas City Hospice, NKC Hospital, Truman Medical Center or Garden Valley Manor.
Funeral services will be 11:00am Wednesday, March 21, 2012 at St. Gabriel Catholic Church with a visitation from 10-11AM. Burial will be in Mount Olivet Cemetery.
