June 6, 1961 - August 22, 2020
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Bernard on August 22, 2020, at the of age 59 of a massive heart attack. Many thanks to the swift-acting firefighters and paramedics. Special thanks to the dedicated ER Team at Joseph Brant Hospital for their valiant efforts and recognition to all of those working tirelessly on the Frontline. Beloved spouse of Diane (Mills), and loving father of Simon (18 yrs), Joseph (14 yrs), and Phoebe (12 yrs). He will be dearly missed by his brother Mike (Sharon); all his nieces, nephews, cousins, friends, neighbours and co-workers from Burlington, Thunder Bay, Toronto and surrounding area. Bernard is predeceased by his parents, Mary and Frank Brown, his daughter Jessica, his twin Fred (Linda), brothers Ted (Trixie), Jim (Adrienne) and his sister Mary Frances (Rauli deceased). He will be dearly missed by Diane’s family, who are now a strong support for her and the kids. We can find comfort in the fact that fun-loving Bernard is also surrounded in heaven by those who love him. A devoted father and dedicated Superintendent, Bernard was always available to get the job done right. Working so close to home -- literally outside the door -- allowed him to be there to get the kids off to school and even meet their bus when they were little. He was kind to all who met him, and had a quick wit and dry sense of humour. He was a hard worker, and valued resource of Hamilton’s Live Well Property Management. Cremation has taken place. There will be no service due to COVID-19 restrictions. A Celebration of Life will be held on June 6, 2021 --- what would have been his 60th Birthday.
