He attended Ernest Manning High School in Calgary, where he met many lifelong friends. Football always played a big part of his high school years, and his love of football continued for his entire life.
Bernie worked in the insurance industry and the oil industry throughout his career. Many memorable years were spent living in Brooks. Bernie was actively involved in his children’s lives, and he especially enjoyed coaching Ryan’s hockey. Bernie and his family returned to Calgary in 1988, where they lived in Okotoks. Bernie resumed his career in the insurance industry at the Alberta Motor Association (AMA). He retired in 2011, and then was able to enjoy his annual trips to Maui, where he often shared time with his friends, and his family.
