Bernie was my first manager when I joined IBM as a Customer Engineer in Pittsburgh in 1961. He was one of the very best that I ever had throughout my 25 year career. He cared about us, both as employees and as persons.

I started out at IBM as a dispatcher and Bernie was the first manager that I had the pleasure of dispatching for. I remember him as being a kind and considerate man. I really enjoyed working with him.

My deepest sympathy to this family.

I remember Bernie as a great Lions member. He was always very supportive of Lions projects. He was a positive, thoughtful person and he was truly a shining example of a perfect gentleman. He will certainly be missed but never forgotten!

I will also think of Bernie as "Lion Bernie." He was a great Lion and I worked with him collecting glasses from our Sun City West community. Lion Bernie wrote the newsletter, hosted the Lion Christmas party at his retirement community, helped with the "Food baskets" at the holidays and many other Lion activities. He will be missed. We have lost a great man and I know that he is now in a better place with his loved ones.

Being away from Phoenix the past 16 years, I missed out on so many family gatherings. Some of my favorite memories are from holidays spent as a kid at Aunt Irene & Uncle Bernie's home in Sun City West. They both always made us feel welcome and special. Uncle Bernie is the kind of man I want my son to be. He will be missed and always loved.

I will always remember this amazing man and the times we shared together. Uncle Bernie was a shining example of what a gentleman should be. He taught us all about kindness and respect and the value of family. He will always be in my heart.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the family during this time. I will miss seeing him, when we return to Arizona in the fall. He was a very special man and a good friend of my parents when we first met him in 1981.
