Obituary for William Bergen Nelson

Builder, sailor, motorcycle rider, artist, inventor, friend, father, and husband. On April 24, 2016 we said goodbye to a free spirit, grounded only by the love of his family, friends, his loving wife, Judith, and his faithful pug, Tucker.
Bergen was a fifth generation builder and left his mark throughout California. First in Southern California where he left as Vice President of Broadmoor Homes to travel to Northern California where he fell in love with its beauty and where he could pursue his sailing passion. Setting up his office in Sonoma he designed and built projects throughout Sonoma, Napa, and Marin counties.
We are saddened by his loss, but find peace in knowing he died as he lived his life – on his own terms.
At his request no memorial will be held.
Donations in his memory may be made to U.C Davis Companion Animal CARE Fund or Northbay Hospice, Fairfield, CA 94534.
