Steve Berger's life was tragically cut short on Sunday, October 1, as a result of being shot at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival in Las Vegas. Steve was at the festival celebrating his 44th birthday with friends, including fellow advisor Josh Decker.
Steve joined EFS Advisors in 2007 and would have celebrated his 10 year anniversary with us in December. He was brought to the EFS family by his long-time friend, Josh Decker, and the two worked together to help build each other's practices.
Steve was passionate about his work as a Financial Advisor, and was beloved by his clients. He cared so much for others and was always willing to take time to listen to clients, friends, and co-workers to offer a helping hand.
Steve has built a very successful practice and has been recognized for the past five consecutive years as a Five Star Wealth Manager by Mpls-St. Paul Magazine & Twin Cities Business. He not only did a great job in taking care of his clients and their portfolios, but added tremendous value to our firm by always contributing ideas and sharing his knowledge at company meetings.
Steve was able to touch thousands of lives, enhancing the ability of his clients to retire earlier and/or in a better financial position. There are no words to express how much we have appreciated the opportunity to work with him, and how much he will be missed.
Steve was also a loving and devoted father, survived by his three children, Hannah, age 15, Harrison, age 12, and Harlow, age 9, along with his parents Dick and Mary Berger, and sister, Christine.
EFS has created a memorial fund for Steve's family. Donations can be made to the "Steve Berger Memorial Fund" and can be sent to the corporate office:EFS Advisors
A fund has also been set up at YouCaring and you can donate by going to YouCaring — Steve Berger
