My thoughts and prayers are with Renee, Spencer and all of the Bergeron family during this difficult time. I am grateful for the countless contributions and many fond memories Tommy provided over the course of his 47 years with us. He was a model of loyalty and always approached everyone and everything with a positive outlook. I am saddened by his passing but know where he has gone. The thought of he and Sandra together again is reminder of his heavenly reward for a life well lived. God bless!

I am so sad to hear of Tommy’s passing. We kept in touch after our Del Papa days. He came to my first classroom in Jasper at Christmas and played Santa for my 4th graders! He will be missed.

I’m just reading of the passing Tommy and wish to express my condolences to each of his family. We grew up in a close knit community, most of us attending Fletcher Elementary, David Crockett Jr High, and then on to Beaumont High School, with a few going to South Park High. Over the years we moved on in life with Marriages, Families, & Jobs. Tommy had a love for Everyone and kept the Avenue E Kids tied together through Facebook. He was a happy cheerful friend who shared his live of his church, St. Anthony Basilica, by pictures he often posted. Loving his dear wife, Sandra, was the joy of his life. Her death jarred Tommy deeply. Now, We have each lost a life long good friend.. until we meet again, Tommy, “may the songs of Angels welcome you and guide you….Home.” And, by the grace of God may they welcome us also.

Nina and Mike Olson

Our thoughts and prayers are with all the Bergeron family! I’m sure it was a happy day in heaven being reunited with his bride!

Enjoyed Tommy’s company and friendship during the David Crockett Jr High Monthly Luncheons, especially at Floyd’s Seafood. I felt really close to Tommy when I lost my wife in Dec 2017 and he lost his love of his life suddenly the next week. The past luncheon we asked Paul about Tommy; and sadly received the news later that week that Tommy left thiis earthly place to be in his new Heavenly home to be with his wife Sandra Kay.. Tommy we will miss you but we know you will be in a better place. God Bless and Sympathies to the family.
