Bernie trucked a lot of cattle for Jay Repard over the years. Great guy! Great trucker! Sorry to hear of his passing. Rode with him several times to pick up or drop off cattle! Always enjoyed the trip!
I added a photo of Bernie's truck backed up to Jay's barn!

I always enjoyed visiting my neighbor Bernie. We had fun talks and I miss him. One day as I was mowing my lawn, a small part broke of the back of my mower while hauling a roller. Bernie was watching across the street while sitting on his front porch. He jumped off his chair, went into his garage, and quickly came over with a perfect part replacement, free of charge...and I still use it today! Thanks again, Bernie.
