Gale Richard Taverna

October 7, 1936 — July 3, 2019

Gale Richard Taverna, 82, surrounded by his loving family, went to be with the Lord on July 3, 2019.

Gale was born to Hans Taverna and Laura (Wren) Taverna on Oct 7, 1936, in New Rockford, ND.

The family moved to Fargo, when Gale was seven. Gale graduated from Central High School. He married Beverly Klier and they were blessed with two daughters. Gale served in the military and was stationed in Germany.

He loved the companionship of his wife, together they enjoyed fishing, tennis, biking, long walks, dining out, and gardening.

He was a devoted NDSU Bison and Minnesota Twins fan. His greatest passion was Jazz music and playing his drums. He relished tapping out a beat, be it his drums, the car dashboard, kitchen table, or his knees!

Gale is survived by his wife, Beverly; daughter, Tamara (Scott) Klein, Bismarck; daughter, Jami (Keith) Clouse, Dallas; grandchildren, Alexandra (Chris) Norheim, Nicholas Parks, Jesse, Jack, and Jed Clouse.

Gale was preceded in death by his parents; his brothers, Dean and Don; and sister-in-law, Pat.

The family would like to thank all extended family and friends for their loving support.
