Judy and Carey, we are so sorry to hear of Bert's passing. A customer came by the station today and told David. Bert was a great person and always fun to be around.

My first memories of Bert were as a friendly, helpful neighbor. He made
Regina and I feel very welcomed when we moved to the neighborhood. Bert was always willing to share his expertise, his tools, and his time for friendly conversation. I'll miss you, Bert. May God bless and prosper your family.

Cary, Timothy and Mom B.
I am so sorry for the loss of your Dad Cary. I am sorry I never got to meet him, but I saw just how much he was thought of and loved on Saturday by his family friends, and Firefighter family. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and T. and your Mom and i am always here for the 3 of you no matter what you need. You are a special part of our family. I was so glad to be able to be with you this weekend and loved meeting your mom. I wish I could have met your Dad. With all our love and prayers,
Penny, Chris, CJ and Jacob

Bert always had a smile on his face and he was the type of person you could depend on when you needed help. I will miss him on future Navy League trips. George Feitig (Richmond,Va.)

This man held an authoritative place in my life during the years I dated his daughter. My fondest memories of Bert revolve around his enjoyment of licorice jelly beans and a penchant for Armor-Alling every exposed surface of his vehicles to the point that riding in the back seat of his car made you respect how a fried egg feels in a Teflon pan. And he was always ready with a joke. RIP, Bert, and thanks for the memories. And I'll have her home by 11.

Bert and I worked together at Station #11. He was always carrying a smile and a helping hand.

Judy, I don't think we ever met, but Bert and I grew up together at St. John's. Our families were friends and we had some great times in youth fellowship. I think I last saw Bert at the 143rd anniversary of St. John's, but he may have been at Daddy's funeral in 2001. I just wanted to extend my sympathy to you and your family. Bert was a great guy.

Bert and I go back many years, we worked together in the same company. In my service with the Henrico Fire Dept. I can truely say Bert was above the top of the list as a friend , and as a Firefighter. He always excelled in respect for his fellow Firefighters and anyone he came in contact with.I know Bert was thinking of his other brothers that were having a hard time, just now.It shows the unselfishness in his manner and the respect he had for everyone. Bert will always remain in my thoughts. Please except my deepest condolance, to his family and friends.
