Thursday, December 5, 2019Our family, The Preziosi’s, have known the Bergeron family since 1965 when we moved to Central Islip. Our parents were the best of friends . Besides our parents all 6 children of the Bergeron family and the 7 Preziosi children have kept a solid and loving connection since 1965. How ironic that I met the love of my life, Louis Bergeron and got to share the same last name as Gerry and Susan. My husband and I felt so special at their wedding many years ago and never forgot at the time we were the only Bergeron’s at their wedding, even though technically not related (as Doreen and Debbie had different last names at that time). I lost my husband Louis Bergeron to cancer last July and my heart breaks especially for Susan knowing what she is going through and how long it takes just be able get out of bed in the morning and forget that her life time partner , lover and friend SHE chose is no longer there. I wish I could help with the pain and take it away from her. I am positive Louie, both my parents and Gerry’s parents were all there welcoming him into the gates of Heaven. What a reunion that must have been and I look forward to seeing Gerard once again. May God bless Susan, Her children, Debbie, Denise, Doreen, Dorathea and Donna and help them accept Gods’s plan and get them thru ones of the most difficult days on 12/06/19 knowing Gerard/Gerry will always be with them and loved them so much. I love you guys with all my heart. To Gerry , till we meet again.

Monday, December 2, 2019So sad to hear about the passing of Gerry Bergeron. We had so many great times in grammar school (St John of God Central Islip LI) and HS St. john the Baptist (West Islip LI) Gerry was always a great person with that big smile and big heart. Many memories playing hockey as kids. Rest in Peace Gerry. My thoughts and prayers are with you and family Gregg Reutter

Thursday, November 21, 2019I can't say enough about the impact and significance that Uncle Gerry had in my life. He was more than an Uncle, he was someone that I looked up to and admired. He opened my eyes to so many things and gave me so much to strive for. His love for family and life made him such a fierce presence in all of our lives, one that will never be replaced. I will hold on to the many memories of Family Christmas, Fire island, intense Kan Jam competitions, his perfect margaritas and also hosting my 13th birthday sleepover for me and my friends at his house. He was my "cool" uncle and I will miss him so very much. I am so grateful that I was able to have him in my life for as long as I did and even more grateful that he brought Aunt Susan, Carter and Evan into our lives. His presence will be felt forever in my heart and I will love him for all of eternity. Until we meet again Uncle Ger.

Thursday, November 21, 2019Gerry and I went way back. When I do the math, I think it’s been 33+ years. Initially I knew him as a work colleague but we soon became fast friends and fortunately that friendship never lapsed, even despite me leaving the trading business several years ago. Gerry was such an easy going guy with a ready smile, but he was sneaky competitive when it came to sports. Much to my frustration at the time, I remember him beating me repeatedly in squash and tennis no matter how well I was playing (whatever happened to customer squash?). And we had some great Connecticut bike rides together over the years. He was also clearly devoted to his family as others have pointed out. Seldom would a conversation go by where he didn’t mention how proud he was of Carter and Evan (this despite Evan evidently becoming a Bruins fan). And he always would refer to Susan as “his rock”. I’m thankful for all the time we had together. I’m sure going to miss him. My best goes out to his family.

Thursday, November 21, 2019Uncle Gerry meant a lot to me. I have so many amazing memories with him growing up. Spending easters in Connecticut and more importantly our annual family Christmas. He hosted for years and as I looked through pictures of christmases in the past I was reminded of how much he loved us all. Hosting 30 plus big personalities is no easy gig. Every year as a child I looked forward to this day. As I grew older it was still a very important day to me. Especially the first year I brought my husband, Derek ( college boyfriend at the time ). It went pretty smoothly, of course I was a little nervous for him to play football with every man in my family. Ok... nervous is an understatement. As I watched him through out the day I noticed Uncle Gerry making sure Derek was included in everything. He took it upon himself to make sure Derek felt apart of the family and for that I will always be grateful. As years went by Derek gravitated towards him. We are now married with 2 children. Uncle Gerry made sure he was at Derek’s bachelor party. Derek still has the shirt he bought him in Cape Cod. It breaks my heart that my kids won’t get to know him like I did but he taught me the importance of family. I will hold him in my heart forever.

Thursday, November 21, 2019Dear Susan and family, My heart was so sad when I heard the news of Gerry's passing. Such a warm, entertaining, caring person who had such love for his family. Every time he spoke about Carter, Evan or Susan you could see the radiant love he had for them shine thru. He will be greatly missed by all. Sending my love and strength to his whole family during this very sad time. Love always Eileen

Thursday, November 21, 2019Bergeron's, I have never met any of you but had the pleasure of knowing Gerry since 1996. I first met Gerry in Florida as we were entertaining a client in South Beach. I have worked at Baird in Milwaukee since 1993 and was happy when Gerry eventually came to work for us. He had a wonderful heart and really cared about people. He always put his clients ahead of his interests. Gerry became more than a co-worker. He was a friend who was very loyal and caring. I am glad I had the pleasure of knowing him. God Bless You All.

Thursday, November 21, 2019I was so blessed to have shared every moment of life good and bad with Gerard. He was more than my brother. He was my protector, my cheerleader, my voice of reason, and my friend. Gerard made me laugh even when I wanted to punch him. Life will certainly never be the same without him. Love him- no numbers big enough. XOXO
