Predeceased by his wife of 47 years Lorraine (Dafoe) Custis. Bernie was fortunate to have a wonderful companion, Doreen Douglas, who will miss him dearly.

As a testament to Bernie’s character, he had many families adopt him and for so many, he is a much loved uncle who will be sadly missed.

Bernie was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on September 23, 1929. His athletic prowess shone at an early age and he lettered in baseball, football, basketball and track and field while attending High School. Bernie earned an athletic scholarship to Syracuse University where he starred in football as an African-American quarterback, which was unheard of at that time.

Bernie’s exposure to overt racism occurred when he attended a training camp after being drafted by the Cleveland Browns and was told that the NFL was not ready for a “coloured” quarterback. Bernie was given an opportunity to play for the Hamilton Tiger Cats in 1951 where he became the first African-American quarterback in North America. He was able to demonstrate his skills as quarterback and running back and he was instrumental in winning the Grey Cup in 1953.
