Bernard George Jaksha Obituary
Del Rey Oaks – Bernard George Jaksha, 96 years old, went to heaven on October 26, passing away from natural causes. Preceded in death by his wife of 62 years, Sylvia, in 2009, he was the father of three boys: George (Sally), Steve (Andrea) and Tom (Sue).
Our father was one of three sons born to immigrant Yugoslav parents. Bernard lived through the Depression, joined the Army as an enlisted and rose to the rank of major. He was a WWII Normandy armored reconnaissance veteran, always 2-3 miles into German lines relaying information back to the American lines. Retiring after 24 years of military service, he worked at the Naval Postgraduate School for more than 20 years as the supervisor for the Graphics Arts Dept.
Bernard will be greatly missed not only by immediate family, but also eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
At his request, no services will be held. Please visit www.thepaulmortuary.com to sign Bernard's guest book and leave messages for his family.

We know we will see you in our own time, too.
