BRYAN CHRISTOPHER BERZINS July 19, 1969 – May 13, 2023

Bryan Christopher Berzins, son of George and Joyce Berzins of White Rock passed away unexpectedly from cardiovascular disease on May 13, 2023 at his home in Albuquerque. He was 53, and his untimely passing was a shock, even though he had faced a few health issues in recent years.

Bryan was born July 19, 1969, grew up in White Rock amidst a loving family, attended Pinon Elementary School and graduated from Los Alamos High School. He attended NMSU in Las Cruces for 1 year then transferred to UNM in Albuquerque. After graduating from UNM, he worked briefly in retail and the local newspaper before building his career at two of the local TV stations where his eventual, behind-the-scenes title was Technical Director.

He frequently visited White Rock for a few days to be with his family. He especially enjoyed those visits when his sister and her family were visiting as well.

Bryan was a friendly and gentle person, though somewhat reserved. He enjoyed travel and seeing new places, especially if the trip was with his family. His favorites included summertime in Michigan with cousins, the Big Island of Hawaii, Disney World, and a trip to Europe where he was fascinated by the old castles and the different architecture. Everywhere he was eager to sample local cuisines. From his younger years he had wonderful memories of the family’s one year in New Zealand. He also liked to read and cherished all his books. He was fond of animals and treasured the two rescue cats in his home.

He will be greatly missed by his family and his close friends. He is survived by his parents in White Rock, by his sister Laura Drury and her husband Bradlie (Littleton, Colorado) and three nephews Jacob, Eli, and Tyler Drury, by uncles and aunts Walt & Ilze Berzins (Riga, Latvia), John & Harriett Berzins (West Columbia, South Carolina), Bob Winkler (Mt. Clemens, Michigan), Art & Eleanor Korroch (East Lansing, Michigan), Dottie Berzins (Lansing, Michigan), and by several cousins and friends, including very special friends in Albuquerque, Ken and Patricia Brown and their children Libby and William to whom Bryan was godfather.
