Jon Martin Bergstrom, 71, avid van Gogh historian, died Monday of cancer at his home in Tehachapi California.

Born in Casper, Wyoming, to Einar and Hettie Bergstrom, he attended University of Wyoming, worked at Shell / Aera for 35 years, and after retirement, was an independent management consultant.

He is survived by his wife of 48 years, Diane, two children, Nicole and Kristofer, and two granddaughters Cordelia and Hazel Noel.

A celebration of his life will be held Saturday, October 24 at 2pm at Oak Tree Country Club, 29500 North Lower Valley Road, Tehachapi CA 93561.  In lieu of flowers, donations on behalf of Jon Bergstrom are welcome to the following organizations.
