Obituary: Martin Berger

A devoted North Carolina sports fan, he ran Fasher Painting and Decorating for 40 years.

Martin Allen Berger, 83, of Atlanta passed Thursday, Aug. 31, 2017.

He was born May 15, 1934, in New York to Louis and Rose Berger, of blessed memory.

Marty was married to Robyn Facher Berger, of blessed memory, for 50 years. He was also predeceased by his in-laws, Bernard and Helene Facher.

Marty is survived by his daughters, Lisa Boardman and Lori Bryan, and his son, Eric. He was a supportive father-in-law to Chip Boardman, David Bryan and Melissa Lerman, and a loving and proud “Papa” to Ross and Allison Boardman and Benjamin and Ella Berger.

He is also survived by his brothers, Herb Berger and Larry (Lila) Berger. Marty was known for his tremendous loyalty to his friends, family and, of course, beloved North Carolina. He loved to laugh and could charm a room with his great sense of humor, large stature, and equally large, gentle and loving smile.

Marty took over and ran Fasher Painting and Decorating for 40 years, through which he supported his family in all educational pursuits and many extracurricular activities. He was a devoted North Carolina sports fan and lover of old movies, music and travel.

His generosity with gifts was matched only by the enthusiasm with which he loved to share his interests. He will be greatly missed by his close-knit family and friends, including Megan Edwards and Kim Boxley, his devoted and loving caregivers.
