bergin jimTIETON - Jim Bergin, born March 29, 1941, in Hermiston, Oregon, to Viola (Hogue) and Leland Bergin, died January 3, 2007 at Tieton, Washington.

He was a man of many interests and ideas, with not enough money or time to do all he dreamed of. He said he had lived a great life, had love and respect from family and friends, had done so much and traveled just enough to appreciate our country.

Jim was in the roofing industry all his life, but he should have been a carpenter. He loved to build things. Married 45 years to his wife Bette, he probably had a remodeling project for all but four or five of those years.
