A long time employee of Battery Supply, Bernie spent his days travelling from shop to shop to see his customers, many whom he considered good friends.  You could often find him early in the day at any of the local coffee shops, chatting with friends. He had a passion for baseball. Playing, coaching, and being a fan. That passion has been passed down to his kids, and grandkids.  Bernie was a member of Aylmer Baptist Church, serving on various committees over the years, being an usher and always being in the back and jingling his change. Bernie loved to travel, all over Canada and the United States usually to visit his grandchildren and family. A celebration of life will be held at a later date. Interment, Aylmer Cemetery.
