Armand W. Bergeron, Jr., 55, of North Dartmouth, MA and formerly of Rochester, MA passed away May 21, 2021, unexpectedly at home. Armand was born in New Bedford and was the beloved son of Armand W. Bergeron of Sarasota, Florida and the late Noella Carol (Branzell) Bergeron. Armand grew up in Fairhaven where he graduated from Fairhaven High school before moving on to receive his master’s degree from the University of Lowell in physical therapy to pursue his passion: working with those with special needs.
Armand was an active member of the East Freetown Congressional Christian Church and a loving father to seven children and granddaughter. He was an old soul and a man of many talents with an endless sense of generosity. Those who knew him best, knew him as “Dreambird”. Armand will always be remembered for his love of cooking, feeding anyone and everyone who set foot in his house. In his spare time, Armand enjoyed the outdoors. His passions included everything from tending to his bees, raising various birds, and always helping coach his boys in every sport. Armand had an affinity for the oldies and other classic rock music, but without question, Elvis was his favorite. Above all, we will never forget the love he had for all his children, of whom he was beyond proud.
Armand is survived by his brothers, Troy Bergeron of North Dartmouth and Keith Bergeron of New Bedford; former spouse, Kathy (Menard) Bergeron of Rochester; sons, Benjamin, Brendon, Haydon, Nolan of Rochester, Adler of New Bedford, daughters Cindy and Eloise of North Dartmouth; and granddaughter, Charlie as well as many nieces and nephews.
