Bernie was a proud Navy Veteran, serving both in World War II & the Korean Conflict. He saw the world through his occupation as a film developer with Eastman Kodak. He enjoyed a fulfilling 40-year retirement. His family was his central passion and he loved spending time with them. Bernie was quick-witted, generous and fun to be with. He was a good man, husband and father. In his later years he enjoyed antiquing, going out to eat, sitting on the porch, eating ice cream and playing with his friend "Peanuts" the dog. His family would like to extend a special thank you to Pat Frearson for all her support and love.
