LA FARGE, WI - William Lawrence Bergeron, 56, of La Farge, WI, died Friday, September 23, 2016 at Gundersen Lutheran Hospital in La Crosse, WI after a brief, but hard fought battle with Acute Myeloid Leukemia.
Bill was born August 12, 1960 on Cape Cod, MA to Roland and Ellenore (Crean) Bergeron.

Although their love for the ocean was great, he and his longtime partner, Beverly moved to Wisconsin where he rediscovered his passion for hunting, fishing, and the outdoors.

Bill enjoyed traveling, music, sports especially his beloved Boston Red Sox. He was a compassionate and caring man.
Bill was an avid listener, conversationalist, always ready to help anyone at any time expecting nothing in return.
