Mike was born May 25, 1955, in Conrad to Marcus Bergman and Audrey (Chase) Bergman. He attended grade school in Sweet Grass and graduated from North Toole County High School in 1973. As a child Mike enjoyed filling the plug-ins with play dough and would put the covers back on.
Mike enlisted in the US Army in 1974, stationed in Germany and honorable discharged in 1976. Mike attended Helena Vo-tech to learn welding. After graduation he went to work for Alme Construction until he started his own company, Bergy’s, LLC, in 2020.
In 1982 he married Debby Bjorklund and divorced in 1989, they had one daughter, Heather Bergman.
He met Karen Seifert in 1997. She had three children, Jason, Jennifer, and Jamie. They married in 2006.
He enjoyed snowmobiling, NASCAR, golf, playing corn hole, gopher hunting with Ben and Chase, and of course he was always busy doing either side projects in his shop or working his day job. Mike played as hard as he worked.
Mike was very independent and stubborn. He would give a stranger the shirt off his back. He believed everyone deserved a chance and would do anything he could to help. He lived his life with integrity and enjoyed helping people.
Mike put his ALL into everything he did and expected the same in return. He was brutally honest no matter what, but you always knew where you stood with him. In school he received awards for zero absences which carried throughout his life. “If you aren’t early, you’re late.” He expected things to be right (his way) and you would know if he didn’t approve.
Mike was loyal and expected the same in return- he had integrity.
