Dale E. "Bernie" Bernard, age 77, passed away February 1, 2017.

He was the beloved husband of the late Velencia Bernard; loving father of Helena Kirschner, David (Myrna "Stace") Haddad, and Dale "Mok" (Shannon) E. Bernard Jr.; devoted grandfather of David (Vanessa) Haddad Jr., Michelle (Rich) Stephens, Lana (Pat) Harrison, Matthew (Lauren) Kirschner, Cara (Miguel) Sanchez-Estrada, Brandon Bernard, Joshua Bernard, Neil Bernard, William Bernard, Abigail Bernard, Eva Bernard, Amie (Chris) Flather, Shellie Tomlin, Rhonda Fournier, Jeremy (Krista) Fournier, and the late Renae Fournier; proud great-grandfather of 16; great-great grandfather of 2; dear son of the late Delia Bernard; and brother of Jack (Betty) Bernard and the late Delores Jean Bernard.

Bernie loved his sports. He especially enjoyed bowling and watching baseball. He also enjoyed the outdoors and hunting. People who knew him will miss his witty sense of humor. Bernie was a great friend to all, but his loss will be felt most by his loving family. He was their "Rock", a true family man. He was always there for them and exerted a calming influence over them.
