William Bergstrom Notice
Bergstrom, William Stanley "Bill" Bill Bergstrom died unexpectedly on March 28, at the age of 64. He was born February 3, 1952. Bill is survived by his wife Kathleen, children Sam and Sarah, and brothers Thomas, Robin, and Jeffrey. He received a Master's degree in creative writing from UW-Milwaukee. Bill worked for the Parking and Transit Department at UW-Milwaukee for 33 years. Though retired, he continued to regard his colleagues fondly. Bill was a devoted husband and father. He was also a poet and novelist. This talent with words did not stop him delighting in terrible puns. He also told bad jokes and steadfastly refused to sing on key. For these and so many other reasons, he will be deeply missed. A Memorial Service will be held on Wednesday, April 6 at Gesu Church, 1145 W Wisconsin Ave, Milwaukee. Visitation will begin at 9:00 AM , with Mass celebrated at 11:00 AM. In lieu of flowers, memorials in Bill's name to Gesu Church would be greatly appreciated.
