Louisville, CO

Dr. Roy V. Bergman, VMD, passed away on June 29, 2024, after a brief illness, surrounded by his three children. Though he spent much of his life in Cochranville Pennsylvania, in 2019 Roy moved to Louisville Colorado where he was enjoying retirement, and being closer to his growing family.

Roy was born on May 23, 1943, to parents Lucille (Fisher) and Roy F. Bergman of Derry, Pennsylvania.  After overcoming polio at the age of six, he became an Eagle Scout and graduated from Derry Area High School. Roy went on to attend Penn State University and was a graduate of the class of 1965.  Afterward, at the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine, Roy found a passion for large animal and equine medicine, and was also lucky enough to meet and eventually married his late wife, Dr. Marcia Bergman, VMD, in 1971.

Roy began his veterinary career at New Bolton Center of Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, before starting his own practice, Broodmare Associates, specializing in equine reproduction. Broodmare Associates served the equine community of Chester County for over 40 years, primarily breeding, treating, and birthing Thoroughbred horses.

Roy was an avid road biker, animal lover, and a voracious reader.

He is survived by his three children, Connor Bergman, Lauren (Chris) Burkart, and Patrick (Lindsay) Bergman, along with his two grandchildren, Arthur and Zoe Bergman, all of whom reside in Colorado.  He is also survived by his sister, Mona Lou McConnaghey, of Falmouth, MA, her husband, two children, and four grandchildren.

A private ceremony will be held for close friends and family at Faggs Manor Cemetery in Cochranville, PA.
