On September 6th, our husband, father, brother, uncle, grandfather, and great grandfather Bernie, passed over from this world to the next part of his journey. The last few years of his life here on earth were a struggle and we celebrate his release while feeling deeply the loss of his presence.
Bernie’s life was filled with family. Bernie and the love of his life, Fay, were married for 57 years. In that time they created a clan that included 3 daughters and a son, 12 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren. They were closely connected to an extended family that often included friends who became family. Bernie loved gatherings of the clan, Fay’s cooking, card games, dogs, horses, fishing, and enjoyed a very successful career as a heavy equipment operator.
Bernie will be remembered as a generous, dedicated, stubborn, loving, mischievous man with a warm smile and a big heart.
His family would like to thank the wonderful staff at Cairnsmore for their loving care of Bernie in the last months of his life. No services are planned at this time, but a celebration of his life will take place at a later date. Online condolences can be posted at www.hwwallacecbc.com
