We also played a lot of walleyball at the Waterford Hotel together My daughter Michelle also played in volleyball leagues with Bernard. Bernard actually helped me to move a slate pool table into my basement. Bernard’s smile and humor was infectious. We will all miss him. May God Bless you and your family.

    It was always a pleasure being around Bernard whether at work for Fleming, at the Waterford Athletic Club playing Walleyball or various other places playing with or against him at volleyball. He always had a big smile and a positive attitude, but was also a tough competitor. His light will be missed and I pray for comfort and peace for you all. God bless you.

I love you Pam and know that Bernard will always be watching over you.
