BROKEN BOW, Neb. (AP) - A member of the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission has died.

Pat Berggren tells Lexington radio station KRNV (http://bit.ly/1KWPWm6 ) that his father, commission member Lynn Berggren, collapsed Tuesday while hunting with another of his sons, Kevin. Lynn Berggren was pronounced dead at a Lexington hospital. He was 65.

Commission Director Jim Douglas said Wednesday that Lynn Berggren was entering his eighth year on the commission, representing north-central Nebraska. He had also operated a construction company in Broken Bow, Berggren Home Builders

His son, Pat, says his father was passionate about what Nebraska offered in public hunting, fishing and outdoor activity and that “he promoted it, he lived it.”
