1943 – 2020
N. Grosvenordale – Raymond O. Bergeron, 77, of Reardon Rd., died Monday afternoon April 13, 2020 at Westview Healthcare. He was the loving husband of the late Jill N. (Brownlie) Bergeron. Born in Webster, MA, he was the son of Lucienne B. (Lamoureux) Bergeron of N. Grosvenordale and the late Ovide T. Bergeron.
Mr. Bergeron worked for many years for the State of Connecticut Department of Transportation in the maintenance department.
Ray was a member of Sons of the American Legion Post 67 in N. Grosvenordale and a lifetime member of both the Thompson Little League and the former Knights of Columbus Council 2087 in N. Grosvenordale. Ray enjoyed collecting sports memorabilia and was an avid New England sports fan.
Ray was a wonderful man who dedicated his life to being a thoughtful, loving, and supportive father and son. He was known as Dad, DOM, Pepere, Pop-Pop, Helmut, Uncle Reema and The Trickster throughout his life and brought much laughter and joy to his family and friends.
Westview Healthcare staff called him a ray of sunshine and that he would look up to heaven and say, “I’m coming Jill; I will see you soon.” Let us all take comfort in knowing that he is now with the Lord celebrating with his wife, Jill and his father, Ovide.
Raymond is survived by his mother, Lucienne Bergeron; his children, Kevin Bergeron and his wife Pamela of N. Grosvenordale and Rebecca Bergeron of Spring, TX; a brother, Leonard Bergeron and his wife Cindy of Tarrifville; and his grandchildren, Jeremy, Maxwell, Jill, Nicole, Lauren, and Anthony.
