He was his own person, owned his quirks, loved hard and lived big. He loved surprises, big squeezes and terrible jokes. The smirks were frequent and smart ass remarks typically followed…when he wasn’t at a family event you could feel a hole. Our hearts break that this hole will last forever. We all will hold the memories of your big grin and your big heart forever and always.
Survived by his parents, Tony and Staci (Proehl) Bergemann of Lake Crystal, MN siblings Evan and Ellie Bergemann of Lake Crystal, MN. Girlfriend Annalise and her son Brantley of Waseca, MN. Grandmother Ronnie Bergemann of Lake Crystal, MN. Aunts; Heidi (Charlie) McCone, Megan (Mark) Lange, Kari (T.J.) Smith and Amy (Carl) Peterson. Many cousins.
He is preceded in death by his grandparents; Henry & Deanna Proehl and Erich Bergemann. Aunt Tara Fredericksen and uncle Peter Proehl.
