BERGMAN FUNERAL 

   Dan Demeo  writes: "On Monday, Oct. 23, I attended the 
   service for John Bergman, who passed away last week at 
   age 56.  The service and interment were at Forest Lawn, 
   Cypress, CA, a few miles east of John's home in Lakewood. 
   In attendance were his parents, wife, son and daughter, and 
   grandson.  A number of John's former co-workers also 
   attended, as well as numerous friends and neighbors. 

   The foyer of the church had several displays of Bergman family 
   photos, spanning over 50 years, from photos of young John, to 
   recent photos with his grandson, Brett.  Dr. Paul Estebo of 
   New Hope Community Church in Santa Ana, CA officiated. 

   As a bibliophile and coin collector, I recognized a few faces, 
   but fewer names.  George Kolbe and I saw each other and 
   talked awhile, and reminisced with John's dad about the 
   drawings of past numismatic personalities he had done a few 
   years ago.  From my collecting of ancient coins,  I recognized 
   Dr. Paul Rynearson, a local dealer and author, and his wife, 
   and Catharine Lorber, author and respected researcher.  A 
   reception at the family home followed, but I did not attend." 

   [Editor's note:  The editor of our print journal, The Asylum has 
   received over 20 tributes to John, to be published in our 2000 
   No. 4 issue.  He writes: "The quality of the man is measured 
   by how people miss him."  Tom is still accepting material - he 
   can be reached at etfort@aol.com.]
