William “Bill” Gerard Tessier, age 54, died on Tuesday, Dec 26, 2017 at PeaceHealth St. Joseph Medical Center in Bellingham. Bill learned carpentry at an early age, and was always good with his hands and creative with fixing things. Bill lived a troubled life, and was estranged from his family for most of it, but will be remembered as a kind and loving person who didn't always find the right direction in life. He leaves behind his two sisters and brother, Theresa Bernhardsen, Susan Tessier, and Tom Tessier, as well as his niece and nephew, Amy Dick and Kyle Bernhardsen. We were not always able to help him, but we always loved him. May he rest in peace.
