Anyone who knew Bernard was sure to hear about his devotion to the Washington Redskins. He was a true FAN! He also enjoyed watching wrestling.
Bernard enjoyed cooking for his family. He loved being in the kitchen but was equally content outside hosting a bar-b-que. His family was important to him and he enjoyed the times when everyone would come together.
Bernard was very proud of his landscaping but not more than graduating and getting his Associates Degree in Business Administration. Bernard was loving, caring, helpful and courageous. He was always willing to help others and maintained a happy disposition for which he will always be remembered.
