Janine and husband Brent, with their children Alyssa, Brandon, Leah and Logan. Brothers Jerry, Donnie and Jeff. Sisters Sissy, Sharon and Sheila.
Bernie was a devoted son, brother, husband, father and friend. He was a provider of support in all life lessons, most of all faith…As a young man, he enjoyed all the perks of a large family of 11. He learned quickly about the ethics of hard work, from his family’s tobacco farm. He loved playing baseball and driving cars, with many aspirations of the Big Leagues. But, soon fell in love with his wife of 61 years, Donna Marie. With four children, he had a lot of life adventures and lessons to share. Out of high school, he devoted his life to family, hard-work and faith. He coached his sons in baseball at St. Mary's in Riverdale, MD. He worked 47 years in sales and management with various bread and cake companies throughout the Eastern Shore Region, as well as 10 years in news distribution with The Daily Times. He truly was the Rock when it came to family, being "Superman" came naturally. He was the "Bread Man", mechanic, electrician, carpenter, gardener and coach but most of all, fulfilled Christ’s commission. His service to his faith included food distribution to the poor through Catholic Little Sisters, Baptist First Baptist, Pentecostal Delmarva Evangelistic and other faith-based groups. He was an avid tithe giver and supporter to the Missions in Haiti. He contributed to local businesses through his knowledge and assisted with gifts of time and financial aid to those in need...
