ALLAN R. BERGER, SR. PORT O' CONNOR - Allan R. Berger, 91, of Port O'Connor, passed away on September 2, 2019. He was born on February 4, 1928 in Mission Valley, Texas to the late Fred William and Helena Rose Reuter Berger. Allan was a long-time resident of Port O'Connor and member of St. Joseph Catholic Church in POC. He was co-owner of the Port O'Connor Food Store from 1950 until 1982 - a life pursuit that left an indelible mark on his family and his community. He was also a founding member of POC Chamber of Commerce. From 1973 to 2000, he served on the Board of the Calhoun County Rural Water Supply District that brought water utilities to Port O'Connor. He also served as Director of the Victoria Electric Coop from 1982 until his retirement in 2012. On days off, it was time to fish. Fishing holes and techniques were passed on to sons and grandkids, but PaPa seemed always to have the best luck! Upon retirement, a cabin on the old home place and cattle ranching also provided enjoyment. Upon moving to Victoria, he became a member of Holy Family Catholic Church. He is survived by his wife, Dolores Seifert Berger; sons, Allan Berger, Jr. (Brigid) of Port O'Connor, Ron Berger (Catalina) of Richmond, David Berger (Stacy) of Burnet, Doug Berger (Brenda) of Port O'Connor, and James Berger (Lisa) of Tulsa; brothers, William Berger (Ruby Nell) of Gonzales and Fred Berger (Marie) of Mission Valley; sister, Marjorie Tater of Victoria; brothers-in-law, Ralph Lau (Lillian) and Chester Lyssy; sisters-in-law, Lillian Berger and JoAnn Lau; grandchildren, Natalie David (Richie), Brad Berger (Amanda), Nicole Berger Freeland, Tyson Berger (Lindsey), Ashley Berger, Brianne Harryman (Casey), Erin Munoz (Brooks), Kelsey Berger, Jarrod Berger, Brandon Berger, Lauren Berger, and Cameron Berger; great-grandchildren, Zane Berger, Asher David, Leslie Hall, Logan David, Ian Berger, Trevor Berger, Harper Harryman, Mason Berger, Lucinda Berger, Kinlee Munoz, Ryker Harryman, and Sawyer Munoz.
