Bernhard (Bernie), 82, entered every room with a kind word and mischievous twinkle in his eye.
Known for his giving spirit, quick wit, good conversation, proud German roots, love of European soccer and Bayern Munich, Formula One racing, Excel Spreadsheets and above-all else family.
The loss of this incredible man is felt most deeply by his wife Janet of 54 years, his children Douglas (Leanne), Sue-Ann (Steve), Nicole (Rob), Jay (Sandy) and Joy.
Always ready to get on the floor and play, or tell a great story, this Opa was adored by his grandchildren Chera (Noel), Trevor, Ethan, Ava, ^Reid^, Quinn and Cole.
True friend, brother and uncle to many, and a man who highly valued loyalty, fairness, peace and selflessness.
