Memories Timeline


  1. I am saddened to learn about Bernie’s passing. I had the pleasure of getting to know Bernie and Audrey in my office. Bernie was one of the sweetest, kind and thoughtful people around. He was devoted to Audrey and she to him. We were honored to know Bernie and our thoughts and prayers to Audrey and family-
    Roxanne lowenguth and all your friends at Roc Perio (especially Matt)

  2. I am profoundly saddened to learn of Bernie’s passing. We worked at Kodak in bldg.23, and bowled together at Terrace Garden Lanes. Spending time with Bernie was always a delight. He was a character, and I say that not in a negative way, but an admiring way. My wife, Jo Ann and I want to express our condolences to Audrey, and Bernie Jr. He Will be missed by all who knew him.

  3. Bernie what can I say man you’ve been a solid rock to our family from the beginning. when you came into our lives it was like having another brother a big brother you’ve always been and always will be a major inspiration to us all. we can’t thank you enough for taking great care of our sister. and for showing her lots of love as well as all the rest of us. you have been a big part of my life from the beginning all the way up until your new beginning. when I heard what had happened I was floored. it was not supposed to be like this you never deserved any of the things you went through. I know I will be a different person from this day on and that’s because of you. I will always be grateful to you. Love more. Talk more. And care more. I will share all the memories you helped create. And above all. I will always. Love you. Like a brother. God. Bless you. Say hi to Eddie for us all. And give him a big hug for me. I will miss you so much. Love Don

  4. My deepest sympathy to you Audrey, Bernie Jr. and family. I’ll always remember our bowling family!

  5. Bernie and Audrey have been our friends for almost 40 years. I am flooded with memories of escapades I won’t mention, Knighthawks trips and just great times together. No one could ask for a better friend. He will be dearly missed by my myself and my sons, but I know he was happy to be greeted by Eddie, Carl and others that have gone too soon. Thank you for the memories for myself and my kids. All our love to Audrey, Bernie Jr, Heather, Nate and Maya.

  6. Truly sorry to hear of Bernie’s passing. I worked with Bernie and Audrey at Genesee Hospital and was a grade school classmate of Bernie Jr .
    My condolences and prayers to all who loved him. He was always fun to be around and one of the hardest working men I was ever around.
    Rest in peace, friend.
