Gregory Michael Bergeron, 27, passed away unexpectedly on April 12, 2012.

Greg was born in Stevens Point on Oct. 30, 1984. He grew up into a handsome young man who was able to put a smile on the face of anyone he met. Greg was full of laughter, love and adventure. He cherished his friends and his family. Greg was a guy larger than life. Wherever he went and whatever he did his presence was known.

Greg resided in Prescott, Ariz., where he fought a hard battle to overcome his addictions, embraced the program of recovery and succeeded with 18 months of sobriety when he passed away. He was looked up to in Arizona’s Recovery Community where he was employed by New Freedom House and Clean Adventures. Greg made it his purpose to help others achieve recovery and was a mentor, friend and hero to many.
