William Henry Bergeron Sr., 57, of Kingston NH, passed away on September 23rd with his loving daughter Quincey by his side after a valiant battle with diabetes. He was born on March 18th, 1964 to Paul and Juanita Bergeron in Bourne Massachusetts as one of 9 children and was predeceased by his parents, brother Paul and sister Patricia Green.
Bill was a man of pride who was always willing to lend a helping hand in any way he could. He took great care of his yard, where the grass could always be seen perfectly trimmed without a leaf to be found. He spent hours enjoying his “oasis”— listening to the waterfall from nearby Sheldon Pond and watching his rescue dogs play in the backyard. He would even take his parrot, who was older than him, to an outside cage on sunny days.
He attended Triton Regional High School where he played football and met lifelong friends John Barrett and Ken Parks. They spent many fun years afterwards living on Salibury Beach, creating reputations as constant beachgoers and living through experiences that his children and friend’s children would love listening to later on. He spent decades of summers in the sun with those same friends.
More than anything, Bill loved his family and home. He raised his three children — Quincey Elizabeth Bergeron, William H. Bergeron Jr. and Courtney Mclellan — in Kingston, NH, where he worked selling cars with the Leavitt family and his late friend Eddie Farrell, whom he developed strong bonds with over his many years in the business. His love for football from his teenage years landed him into a new passion of coaching for his son and nephews.
He enjoyed Sunday dinners, watching football, reminiscing about “The Kon Tiki Days “ and cherished any time he got to spend with family and friends.
Bill was known to make everyone around him laugh, no matter their age, and was a figure who people could look up to for both his fun attitude and wise advice. His captivating personality made him a friend to many. Bill will always be remembered for a quick wit and sense of humor, for his smile that lit up a room, and for the eternal joy he has always brought to his family and friends. He always ended phone calls with “I Love You Buddy.”
Bill left behind the mother of his children Renee Bergeron, his three loving children Quincey Elizabeth Bergeron, William Henry Bergeron Jr. and Courtney Mclellan. He also leaves behind his grandchildren Stella, Chloe, Riley, Julian, Merida and Meadow.
Bill also leaves behind his siblings Priscilla, Diane, Becky, Richard, Ralph and Danny along with many nieces and nephews who he deeply loved.
