Mr. Sundquist was a wonderful man! He was like a second dad when I was young. Bourne Tigers baseball. Roaming about with he Brian and Bonney On the Hi-liner. He will be missed by so many I am sure. I speak of him to this day when asked of childhood memories. I am saddened to hear of your mom and dad Brian. Mine are no longer here either.
This year has been hard for many. It's up to us to carry the legacy of things learned from the beautiful people that are a part of our life.
Blessings and prayers of comfort
To you all! Brian, Patty, Dickie

I first met Bernie 45 years ago when I worked at C.H. Newton Builders in Falmouth. Our relationship was professional and turned into friendship quickly. It continued for the next several decades. He was a terrifically nice guy full of integrity who always stood behind the work of Falmouth Glass & Mirror. He always expressed sincere interest in me personally and what I was up to at any given time.

I send my deep condolences to his family, especially Brian, who will carry on the great legacy that Bernie created and shared with all who were fortunate to know him. I was one of those people. Thank you, Bernie!

Bernie was such a kind hearted and thoughtful man, with a great sense of humor. He always had a story or two to share with us. He loved his family, but especially his Ginnie, whom he missed dearly. He is a great loss to our neighborhood, and to us. Our deepest sympathy to Brian and his family. Joe and Theresa Sullivan

Dear Brian & members of the Sundquist Family,
Paula and I extend our condolences on the loss of your Father/father in law & Grandfather.
In the short period of time that we were privledged to know him, Bernie was always very cordial, polite and upbeat. He and I often talked about how nice it was to live in a small neighborhood where everyone always spoke and chatted. Bernie was an original, we always discussed the Bruins, Patriots, Red Sox and construction sometimes daily.
He always complimented Paula & I on the great work we had done on our house and having friends next door that he could call.
I was very fortunate to have developed a personal friendship with him because of our careers in building construction. Bernie talked about all his years at PPG and the commercial buildings in Boston. He and I compared our hand drawn drafting projects that showed his expertise in architecture and how we had evolved from a similar era.
I enjoyed his many visits to a new custom built home that I built in North Falmouth over the last 18 months.
He loved to see quality work and the progression of a large home from the start to finish. He knew very well from visit to visit the progress by the names of the subcontractors on their trucks.
Bernie was able to see the interior of the project as it neared completion and I was able to introduce him to my crew on the job. He was very proud of Falmouth Glass his family members and the people who worked for Brian.
We will miss his sense of humor and his regular visits and discussions when I was working on my lawn or around the house.
He always spoke about how lucky he was to have such a great family that loved him and took good care of him. He always mentioned everyone in the family as very special and how blessed and how proud he was to have them as family.
We wish your family peace and please always remember the good Bernie brought to everyone that he met.
He was an "Original".
