Raymond Paul Bergmann, 68

NEW SALEM, Mass. —Raymond "Ray" Bergmann, 68 years old, passed away unexpectedly on June 26, 2021. Raymond was born in New York on Dec. 7, 1952. 

After graduating Christ the King High School in Queens, NY, he attended Hunter College. Raymond went on to work as a route driver for the New York Daily News for over 30 years. In 1988, Raymond and his family moved to Williamstown where they lived for 27 years.

In 2015, Ray and his wife Jasia moved to Maine to retire but came back to live in Massachusetts once their beautiful grandchildren were born.

Raymond was totally devoted to his family. He was truly the rock of his family and could be counted on for help in any and every way. He was an avid and exceptional golfer, and with his love for the game, he brought a beauty and grace to it.

Ray had an inventive and mechanical yet artistic mind, and he loved finding creative solutions for whatever projects he was working on (and there were always many).

He also loved summering at his beloved camp in Maine, aptly named "Happy". There he loved to swim, work on cabin improvements, and find peace by watching the sun on the water or listening to the loons call at night.

Raymond was gentle, loving, humorous and kind. Folks from all walks of life were drawn to his welcoming demeanor and unique outlook on life. With his calm voice, he was always there for advice and stories. Ray was a great listener and was always so thoughtful.

He will be deeply missed by his wife of forty years, Jasia Bergmann, and his children Vanessa and Paul Bergmann. Raymond also leaves his brother George Bergmann, his grandchildren Wyatt and Jamie whom he absolutely adored as well as his niece, nephews, cousins, son in law, and sisters and brothers in law. 

He was predeceased by his mother Marion Bergmann, his sister Marion Bergmann, and his grandmother Margaret Kuveke.

A public memorial service/celebration of life* will be held outside under a tent on Oct. 16, 2021 at 11:00AM at the South Church in Amherst: South Church, 1066 South East Street Amherst, MA 01002
*We ask that you kindly wear a mask/face covering.
