Stephin Wayne Bergeron

Stephin Wayne Bergeron was taken from earth April 13, 2011 by former friends, according to his Mother Christina Sargent Bergeron.

Stephin was walking when the former friends appeared and slayed the twenty year-old. Christina said she thinks the only reason they had was he asked them to stop selling drugs.

“My son did nothing but ask them to not give drugs to people,” said Christina. “[They] murdered my son and the price they pay will never be enough – Not for me.”

Stephin was born October 26, 1990 and weighed one pound ten ounces when he was born. Christina said he was “God’s little miracle.” His passing has been tasking, according to his mother.

“I’m so tired. I cry every day missing every little thing my son did and said… I pray god helps me to forgive them because it eats at my very soul. It breaks me down every day that I don’t get to have him in my life.”

Stephin wanted to do many things, Christina said. He desperately wanted to be a father; already picking out the name Lane Braxton Bergeron had he had a boy. He was in college, attempting to acquire his Instrumentation license, and he was very active, playing multiple sports.

Christina said Stephin was more than her son, calling him her best friend. She said he was “a small fellow with a huge heart,” and admired the way he would do anything for anyone.

Stephin loved riding horses and bulls, going mud riding with his friends, and having big bonfires, his mother said. She called him a Chriistian boy who was saved not once, but twice. He was very close with his little brother and sister and loved taking care of people when they were sick, according to his mother.

“When I got sick with my heart he stayed by my side. He would even sleep in a recliner in my chair at night to make sure I was ok and he’d fix me the best big glass of hot tea every night if I had a migraine,” said Christina.

Stephin wore his heart on his sleeve according to Christina. She said he was always singing:

“When he was about 12 he dedicated a song to me by Lil Bow Wow called “for my momma.” He said one day I’d never have to work again or struggle like I had raising my kids because he would take care of me. He never left even if we were mad or upset with each other without kissing my cheek and saying I love you mom. And most days he’d squeeze me really tight and sing the words loving you because you’re so beautiful to me.”

Christina wrote the following at the end of her note.

“He had goals and a future that were taken away from him. When he was little he would make things on holidays with his Lil brother and sister and we would go to the retirement homes and pass out things to the elderly to let them know that they may not know us from Adam but they were not forgotten on any holiday that their lives meant something. We even dressed up for Halloween one year and went to visit with them and took pictures. Stephin Wayne Bergeron is my son. Stephin Wayne Bergeron is a angel and a hero. I will never let the world forget him or who he was while here on this earth. He is loved and missed by so many and will be forever. A hero taken too soon from this earth by evil cowards. Stephin Wayne Bergeron 10/26/90-04/13/11. Mommy misses you bud more than anything in this world.”

  1. Christina, your Stephin lives in your heart and memories and even horrible people can’t erase who he was. I was pleased to see that he was going to college for instrumentation. My son, Jesse, 22, just finished his degree and started work, is planning a marriage within a year and with God’s grace and blessings, will be able to be the father that Stephin didn’t have a chance to be, due to people who aren’t fit to breathe the same air as others. I am sorry for what happened to Stephin and Lane Braxton would be a beautiful name. I will suggest it to my son, Jesse Miller. We are from Oklahoma originally but Jesse and his sister, moved to Texas with me at a young age. We lived in a rough area in the state, meaning the entire county we were in, and Jesse has often said how glad he was to be away from the drug culture that exists there. Stephin sounds like a true angel and he will be remembered. I will think of him at each of Jesse’s milestones in life. Thank you for sharing Stephin’s memory with us. Tracy

    • Thank you Tracy for those kind words. Stephin was an amazing son. He had never been in trouble with the law or anything other than his speeding tickets for his lead foot lol. Lil guy big truck. He was only 5’3 and 128lbs when he was killed but his heart was the size of Texas. I miss him horribly every second of the day. His sister and I had to watch him get killed and he died in front of me with gunshots to both legs, his right arm, his chest, his head and face. It took him thirty minutes to pass but he was not scared. I find comfort in the fact that he tried to say mom like six or seven times and that he wasn’t shaking. For I know his angels were already with him. I’d be honored if Jessie named his child Lane Braxton. I’m sure Stephin would too. Thank you for thinking of my son. He was a true hero and gave his life by getting drug dealers and murders off the streets. In turn I’m sure he has saved many other lives and those that could have passed don’t even know it. Love Christina Bergeron. He has a in memory page called ” in loving memory of Stephin W. Bergeron”

  5. My prayers go out to you. I thank God, I haven’t lost a child. My nephew was murdered 2 years ago, and I’ve seen the toll it has taken on my sister. I believe there can be no real justice here on earth when someone decides to take a life, a loved one from us. It’s a different kind of grief than a illness or an accident.

    • Yes jennifer it is. Every loss of a child is equally painful but I feel a pain some do not due to the violent way my son was taken in front of me. Doesn’t make my pain any worse just different. My heart aches for everyone who has lost a child no matter how.

    • Hugs and love to you Robin and your Joseph. We live in a sick world and well for one I will be happy when I’m with my maker in a perfect world one day

  7. Oh, Christina, What a tragedy! The very worst thing that can happen to a mother. I have heard that God takes only the best. I am inclined to believe that. How much more perfect could this beloved son have been to you? We know that we all have allotted days to be here on earth. His days were so precious to you by making you happy and being your best friend. You were so blessed. God did not choose to have those horrible monsters shoot him, and Stephin probably took the shots that would have killed multiple others. By doing so, he gave his life for them. God considers him a hero, and he has been given a “crown of life”! I applaud you for your courage and stand in all of this. These guys will spend eternity paying for their crime against Stephin. As Mary, the mother of Jesus was told that a “spear would pierce her own heart”, so has your heart been pierced. (as mine!) You were blessed to have Stephin for 20 yrs (and I had Terri for 17!) We are mothers who have a special tattoo on our hearts with the name of our precious children who were taken before their time. It reads “Love forever and ever, never to be forgotten!” Words cannot describe our love for them and the grief we share at their absence. Christina, you have made your life a memorial to your son, and it encourages us to see how strong you are. Although noone can see the pain and grief you carry inside. But thank God that time marches on, and we will soon reach that bend in the road where we will see our beloved children again, happy and well, never to part again, forever!!! I am looking forward to that day. God bless you and ease your pain. Stephin lives, just beyond the veil, and is waiting to see his beloved mother again! Hugs! ❤

    • Barbara Christian thank you for your kind words. As you know all to well with the loss of Terri and your son the pain can be unbearable. I know my son was a hero and is with God in a very special place. I too believe all the bullets he took saved others. For I know the planner wanted my son dead but the shooter thought my so. Was someone else that had threatened him that day. Not my son. The planner just told him it was my son. I can back this up because we have the proof. It’s sad but all those involved in the things that lead up to my sons murder that night take no responsibility in their part. Wishing every day that they had just left my son alone and not got him involved I. Their drama and they didn’t instigate the situation bc if not for all of their parts in this he would still be here well and alive. The truth will always come out. Yes my son made the choice to try and help. So did I. So does every child in the DARE programs and every law enforcement agent and agency. It doesn’t mean my son deserved to be murdered bc he did as I and asked people to stop giving and doing drugs. He just wanted to help them. They has no remorse for their parts and rolls in my sons death but god sees all and they will answer to him and till then I hope they all are haunted by my sons handsome Lil face every hour of every day. I’ve even had some tell me look life goes on so stop punishing is and making is feel quilty. It’s been a year already for gods sake. I should forgive. Well that’s easy for them to say because they don’t have a life’s sentence of remembering Stephins face blown apart dying in a ditch like I do. They don’t have a life sentence of going to a grave every day just to visit my son or to keep it clean and pretty for him. They just go on like it’s apart of life and I should get over it. The boy the bullets were truly meant for by the shooter has even said to me just last week that I need to check my self into a crazy house bc they are tired of hearing me rant about it and that Stephin should of never got involved. Yet that same boy is the one who came to our home and got my son involved. If they had never came to my house my son would still be here. Others have just failed my son and moved on and hurt his family when my son can see all and well they too will answer to god. I will continue to always fight to keep my sons name on the lips of others for he deserves it and would do the same for me or any other person in this world and did God and Mary about their son Jesus. Mommy misses you Stephin more than the world knows. I will forever love you and never forget you. Never. Love mom
