Bernie was a delightful man. He attended Mass twice each weekend. At his age he continued to work harder than I ever have. He had a wonderful sense of humor and was always delightful to visit with. I will miss him very much and offered a Mass for him here in Rome while I was on sabbatical. I’m sad that I could not be there for his funeral. He was certainly a man of deep faith that he proudly shared with his children. It was always so obvious that he loved his family dearly.
Pax,
Father Dave

I hope you all know that your Dad was a very positive person in my life! Not sure if you guys remember this but your Dad had taken Steven, Manda and myself to dinner at Joe Tess one night. I think Steven was around 4 or 5 and Manda still a toddler. Because of his age your Dad told Steven to chew slowly and make sure no bones! Sure enough you could see Steven couldn’t breathe and your Dad jumped up and started patting him on the back and he was able to breathe. Ok maybe not patting but your Dad knew exactly what to do. Without him my little brother may not be here today! Love that man always and forever! 💕

I had known Bernie for many years. I don't even remember the first time we met, making and educated guess would be 1990 ( 20 years). He trucked many a load of material for my inventory.

He was one of the nicest, hardworking men that I have ever known. Always had good advice if you asked.

He will be greatly missed.

I first met Bernie a number of years ago when he was going to Ca. and back. Later on in his rock hauling days he had a shop in Springfield where he parked his truck. From time to time he would stop for cold one he always had a story to tell. It was usually to make a log story short story. His stops didn't happen during lent cause he always gave up beer for lent. R.I.P. Bernie you will be missed. Bob and Sophie Davey
