He will be dearly missed by those that love him. Bernie’s family is eternally grateful to the Unity ED staff, Unity’s staff on 3300 and 4400 and the Hildebrandt Hospice Care staff for their compassionate, kind and loving care of him during a most difficult time.
No prior calling. A private mass will be held for Bernie.
