Kevin Robert Bergrud

September 7, 1964 - October 4, 2020

Kevin Robert Bergrud, 56, of Aurora, IL passed away on October 4th, 2020.  Kevin was born on September 7th, 1964 in Chicago, IL, the son of Robert and Mary Bergrud, older brother of Amy Bergrud, and father of Sarah and Hannah Bergrud.

From an early age, Kevin loved to figure out how everything worked.  His parents knew he would be some type of engineer in life.  He attended St. Mary’s Grade School, followed by Fenwick High School (Class of 1982), then DeVry University (1998) for his bachelor’s degree in Electronics Engineering.  After graduating from DeVry, he worked as an Engineer at Tellabs for 22 years, followed by the last 10 years at Zeus Battery Products as Manufacturing Engineer.  Throughout all of his jobs, he went above and beyond and helped out multiple departments.  He was really a jack of all trades, and frankly a master of most.

He was a devoted father of Sarah (age 23) and Hannah (age 19) and made sure all their needs were met ahead of his own.  He was one of the most selfless people you would meet.  He was very involved with the Men’s Small Group through Community Christian Church.  When not working, he would constantly help out his family and friends with computer issues, home projects, or just lending an ear to listen and offer advice.

Kevin will be greatly missed by his family and friends, but his passion for life and helping others will live on.

Services will be held privately.
