Seth R. "Bob" Bernard

24 octobre 193117 septembre 2021

Seth R. “Bob” Bernard went to meet his Lord and Savior September 17, 2021. He passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family, and will reunite in heaven with his wife of 39 years, Adeline L. Bernard; mother, Rosemary “Sis” Bernard; father, Theron L. “Goodbuddy” Bernard; and all his other family. We are sure gumbo is being served.

Bob served in the Air Force, retired from the Town of Cary, and spent many of his golden years trading antiques and dancing at every opportunity. He was truly one of a kind and will be remembered far and wide for his humor, fun-loving spirit, kind heart, and wild antics.

Bob is survived by his daughter, Ladonna B. Greene (Charles); sons, Kellum B. Bernard (Nina), Timothy L. Bernard (Suzie Griffith); grandchildren, Chad R. Greene (Michelle), Megan L. Bernard (Glenn Bristol), Tyler H. Bernard (Steve Ford), Caitlyn L. Greene; and 4 great-grandchildren, Riker K. Bernard-Bristol, James W. Greene, Iris J. Greene, and Clementine D. Bernard-Bristol, who were the light of his life.

A private family graveside service will be held Wednesday, September 22, 2021 at Hillcrest Cemetery, arranged by Brown-Wynne Funeral Home in Cary. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Bob’s name to The Alzheimer’s Association.

Uncle Bob Elegy (Part 2)

He use to say: “I hope I never have as much money as Rockefeller, I wouldn’t be able to sleep at night.” I use to think he would worry about loosing that much money, but later, I realized he was worrying about who he would help with that money.

I will always remember sitting around our dining room table for an hour after all the food had be complimented and eaten just listening to Bob tell his stories. Those memories will always bring warmth to my heart. There are moments in our lives that we wish would never end and Bob provided more of those than most could ever hope for.

I would like to leave y’all with this, Bob always loved to have fun, even if he wasn’t t around. So he would leave the best greetings on his answering machine. I have to confess, I used to call when I knew he wasn’t home just to hear his latest bit of humor.

My favorite was: “Thanks for calling 755-1044. When I die, I hope to go peaceful in my sleep like my dad did, not screaming like everyone else in the car. Leave a message.”

Bob loved to make people laugh, and by doing so, he made the world a better place. Now, it’s up top all of us that are standing here today to bring more laughter into the world in order to carry on Bob’s legacy.

Uncle Bob Elegy (Part 1)
I’ve been fortunate to be uncle rich. If you count great uncles, I have had 13 uncles, but Uncle Bob was my favorite. And, that saying a lot when you're competing with Uncle Dale and Uncle Joel!

Bob always had fun telling folks, “The older I get, the more I use to.” That was one of his best jokes, because the more people thought about it, the more they realized how true it was, and the more they realized how true it was, the more they laughed and the more they laughed the more Bob laughed, and the more everyone laughed, the better the world became.

Well, in the end, he got pretty old, he would have been 90 next month, we should all hope to do as well. So he use to a lot.

He use to be a lot of things: a devoted son, loyal brother, caring husband, wise father, fun uncle, and, a loving grandfather, great-grandfather, and Parian. Bob was a friend to all. And he did his best to excel at each of these roles in his life.

He use to do a lot of things too:
Bob and Adeline use to host our family at Christmas and together we made joyous memories that will always be a part of my best childhood memories.
He use to go to yard sales and flea markets, He use to travel all over the southeast for a yard sale or flea market. Year after the year he went to the world longest yard sale. He’d buy stuff on Saturday and put it in his van, only to stop at a crossroad on Sunday to resell it. He was a good businessman, but always honest, he would only mark up his “tings 10%” which was his way of saying he asked 10-times what he paid for it. Now that’s strong Cajun math that I’m pretty sure he learned from Uncle Joel.
He use to hunt, but he only hunted with people he loved like Uncle Dale and Charles
He use to dance a lot, but it was all of us that needed a dance card to keep his hens straight.
He did a lot for his kids, and his grand kids and his great-grand kids, and the kids that called him Parian. And each and everyone of them loved him in return.

Ladonna and family, we are saddened to learn of Bob's death. We have many fond memories of Bernard, Adeline and family over many years. From the dance club we enjoyed for many years to the days of the Jaycees Womanless Weddings. If you were having a bad day and needed an uplifting moment just find Bob and the laughter would begin. Our prayers will be with you in the days ahead.

I miss you Bob! I felt like you were my brother. I have fond memories of playing with you in your Dad’s school in Evangeline, LA. You often pretended to be the principal! I remember the vacation trips with you and your parents — Momou and Carita also joined us. We would stay usually at some friend’s house along the way. When we stopped for gas — you and I would check out the store shelves seeing what we could “borrow”. I remember staying with you and Adeline in Lake Charles while my first house on Common Street was being remodeled and I think I forgot to pay you the rent I owed for my 2 month stay. You lived next door to a hamburger drive-in and I always thought about buying it. I also recall our time together at Northwestern In Natchitoches, LA. You had a friend named James Jean (nickname ‘The Chicken Queen’ because he raised chickens for the college.). James would “borrow” a chicken and pass it to you so that Nelly could fry up a chicken dinner for all of us. You also introduced me to Red Pool, your close friend, and Red and I still visit today. You and I remained close through out the years even though our families were far apart — distance was really never an issue as we spoke regularly every Sunday after the program 60 minutes to discuss things. I treasured those phone calls so much. Love, Dale

DEAR ALL,
IT SADDENS ME TO HEAR THAT ROBLEY HAS PASSED AWAY.

THE WORLD WILL CONTINUE TO TURN WITH OUR MEMORIES---
BUT WITHOUT HIS HAPPY SMILE TO GREET US.

TO MEET HIM AND TALK TO HIM WAS ALWAYS UNFORGETABLE AND ONE YOU THOUGHT OVER AFTER.

PLEASE KNOW THAT YOU ARE NOT ALONE IN YOUR GRIEF AND FOND REMEMBRANCES.

LOVE TO ALL,
THE ROY AND MILLIE LAPOINT FAMILY
