Mr. Berland was a member of Christ Lutheran Church in Preston and held various offices. He was a member of the Preston American Legion and VFW, serving as a past commander and member of the rifle squad.

Survivors include his wife; a daughter, Fran (Marco) Scibora of St. Paul; a son, Larry (Vicki) of Decorah, Iowa; four grandchildren; two great-grandsons; and a sister, Marie (Henry) Holman of rural Lanesboro. Four brothers and a sister preceded him in death. The funeral was held June 6 at Christ Lutheran Church in Preston, with the Revs. Jennifer Graf and James Rushton officiating.
