Maurice Armand Bergeron, 85 (he was born on Christmas Day, 1934!), passed away on Jan. 12, 2020, after a brief stay at the Coos County Nursing Home in Berlin, N.H.
Mourning and missing him is his wife and soulmate of nearly 50 years, Lucille (Valliere) Bergeron, also residing at the Coos County Nursing Home; his daughters Daniele Bergeron and her husband Doug Murphy of San Diego, Calif., Michele Milosh and her husband Gary Milosh, and Maurice’s beloved grand-dog, Blu, of Hudson, N.H.
Also mourning his loss are his brother-in-law and sister, Raymond and Lorraine Sevigny of Manchester, N.H; his brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Donald and Louise Mercier of Berlin, N.H; his sister-in-law and brother-in-law Kathleen Valliere and the late Robert “Zip” Valliere of Berlin; and many wonderful nieces and nephews.
Maurice served our country in the Air Force. He served our God as a Roman Catholic priest. And he served our New Hampshire community as a vocational rehabilitation counselor and as director of social services for Androscoggin Valley Hospital.
He enjoyed fishing and reading and he marveled at the beauty of “God’s Country” up here in Northern New Hampshire.
He taught that “Love is the gift of self for the greater good of the beloved.” Keeping that in mind, in lieu of flowers, please give something of yourself to someone in need.
His family would like to thank everyone who was so comforting and helpful during their journey — family, neighbors and the staff at Androscoggin Valley Home Care, Adult Protective Services, Androscoggin Valley Hospital and Coos County Nursing Home.
