Leo P. Bergeron, age 80, of Gardner MA born November 2, 1943 in Leominster, MA, sadly passed away on Wednesday November 22, 2023 with his wife Barbara (Cefalo) Bergeron and his loving family by his side.
He was a loving husband to his wife Barbara and children; William Bergeron, Paul Bergeron, Leo LeBlanc, Tommy Shook, Tammy Romano, and Tracy Bergeron, several grandchildren and great grandchildren. He is survived by his siblings; Robert Bergeron, Gerry Bergeron, James Bergeron, Marie Matthews, Rita Wornham, Nancy Wessells, Annette Bergeron, and Carol Leger as well as several special nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by his parents, Wilfred Sr. and Fernande (Tourigny) Bergeron, his brothers, Wilfred Jr .and Anthony Bergeron.
He retired from PJ Keatings, Lunenburg MA as a mechanic/welder. He served many years in Law Enforcement and was a proud member of the Fraternal Organization of the Masons. He took his role as a Master Mason and Shriner seriously, dedicating countless hours to these organizations. His commitment to service was also reflected in his time as a police officer and Blue Knight serving with both dedication and integrity.
Leo was an avid cardplayer and loved to fish. And oh, with treats in his pockets, how he loved his horses and dogs. His face would light up with joy driving the tractor or content just sitting on the porch directing the projects.
He also had a knack for storytelling that could turn even a trip to the grocery store into an epic adventure. His tales of his law enforcement days were always a hit at family gatherings. He enjoyed taking “old scraps” that he saved from generations to create new memorable gifts to pass along to future generations. Nothing brought Leo more joy than his beloved family.
