Not sure what to say?

Bert was at Andrew High School a lot the past few years. He always wore a tie, which most teachers haven't done in years. He didn't have to work, he came there because he loved his profession, and he loved kids. He always visited our Special Education department and mingled with the kids. Thru that, I got to meet him and spend some lunch times with him. To me, he was simply one of the nicest, most caring person I have ever met. My world has been a better place for knowing him!

I cannot begin to express how profoundly saddened we are by the passing on of cousin Bert. No doubt he was very special to us and will always treasure the time we spent with him fondly. We will especially remember his generous spirit and love of his immediate family. Bert was so proud of his family. His love of the St. Louis Cardinals and Teaching Profession was right up there. As being a CUB fan guess who won in our discussions. When we came to visit a "Cardinal Only Parking" sign...

Mr. Bertinetti was a great motivator. He was my PE teacher. The talks he gave to us 46 years ago still motivate me today.
Many of the things he said to us to motivate us, I found myself using with my own children. He was a very good person. God bless him. -Brad Roselle, Il

It was my family's privilege to know you and we are eternally grateful to you for inviting Wesley and Kara to share their God-given musical talents with your wonderful congregation. We will miss you dearly.

I enjoyed working with Bert at Stagg High School while serving as assistant principal and principal. His high degree of professionalism set the standard for all staff to follow. I know that he will surely be missed by his family and students and staff. Farewell Bert.....

"Bert" was a mainstay at Andrew High School for the past several years. His passion, concern and dedication were unmatched. His daily energy for all people, both kids and adults was unparalleled. He motivated all of us in this profession to model his positive example on a daily basis. Condolences to his family whom he spoke about with glowing pride admiration every day. God bless you all and deepest THANKS Bert for your contributions to education and the Andrew HS community! A true...

You were a great teacher, a great coach, a great man. I am very fortunate to have been instructed by you when I attended Canterbury Jr. High in the late 1960's. Thank you for your motivation, your enthusiam, your attitude. My prayers go to coach's family.

Bert was a teacher's teacher. He was a role model not just for his students but for all the teachers who knew him as well. He made us all better. If there is one quality that set him apart from all other teachers, I would say that that quality was 'excitement.' Everything good in the world of education excited him because of the promise it held for those involved. His touch brought people to life. I am thankful to have known him. Farewell, Bert

I will always remember our conversations about my childhood hometown, Bellflower. He used to refer to me as the Bellflower kid as we passed each other in the hall at Stagg.
