Obituaries from the Past Three Days

Conklin, Bernard P.  
Bernard (Bernie) P. Conklin, "Big Bern," aka "The Gentle Giant" passed away on June 15, 2016 at Sacred Heart Riverbend in Springfield, Oregon of Metastatic Melanoma. He was 64 years young. Bernie was born in Portland, Oregon to Agnes and Jack Conklin on October 19, 1951. He lived in Portland until the age of 8, diligently attending St. Anthony's Parish in Tigard with his five younger siblings. Bernie and his family picked up and moved for his father's last job as a traveling salesman, which relocated the family to Eugene, Oregon. He would live in Eugene and take the lead as head of the 9 wily Conklin brood until the time of his death. While living in Eugene Bernie attended St.Mary's Catholic Church every Sunday as a family. He went to St.Francis Catholic High School and was in the first graduating class of Marist High School in the spring of 1969. St.Francis/Marist academics are where he obtained the wide breadth of knowledge he became known for. His high school athletics are where his childhood and familial competitive spirit could be put to good use. He excelled in football and basketball and worked on condensing football to become his only contact sport. When he left for college he was the oldest of nine beautiful siblings who would all follow his path and graduate from Marist. He chose to spend his first two years at Lane Community College where he dominated on defense as a member of the basketball team. He then transferred to the University of Oregon where he earned his Bachelor's in Education and fulfilled his dream of putting on the pads for the Duck football team. He played his heart out for two years and his passion for attending and watching Oregon Ducks athletics were something that would stay with him the rest of his life. Throughout his high school and college years Bernie worked several jobs to help support the cost of raising his siblings and pay his way through college. His family was second only to that for his love of Christ and he would not have had it any other way. Just out of college he began molding the minds of our youth as a teacher at Moffit Elementary which is where he met his match. Sandy McEldowney did not measure up by stature but could keep Bernie on his toes and most importantly, hang with the rest of the 8 Conklin siblings and Agnes Conklin. On August 25, 1977 Bernie and Sandy were married. Despite his hope to produce a football team, God blessed the couple with his "bevy of beauties"; four daughters and eventually two grand-daughters. He was always actively involved in coaching and/or attending their sporting events. He would often step up and coach for teams in the community that simply needed a leadership as he was on the board of Kidsports. He had a deep-set need to help others unconditionally as modeled to him by his mother, Agnes. He was heavily involved with all things regarding Marist, he had two daughters graduate his alma mater and currently has his granddaughter attending the school. He was the auction chair one year, faithfully did the "chain gang" during football games and never missed an opportunity to support the school. He loved the Eugene Catholic community at large and was working at the same campus church he attended while at the Univeristy of Oregon, the St.Thomas More Newman. He served as the Development Director up until the time of his death. He had a long lasting effect both students and permanent members alike. Bernie's Irish heritage was a vital part of his being. He was never happier than when taking ownership of his ancestry leading back to Ireland, razzing around with his cherished siblings, or grabbing a drink with his plethora of friends he considered like family. He was also a Knight with the Knight of Columbus and started the chapter at the Newman Center. He was proud to be a founding member of "barsity boys," originally a group of high school friends (which has now expanded) who meet once a week to talk sports, family, life, and have a drink, or two. He is preceded in life by his mother, Agnes and Father, Jack in which he was the main caregiver with their end of life care, respectively. He is survived by his devoted wife of nearly 40 years, Sandy Conklin. He is also survived by his four loving daughters and son-in-law; Theresa, Katie Will (Tim), Stephanie, Colleen and three adoring grandchildren Ryan, Bri and McKenzie. Also surviving are his eight beloved siblings John (Veronika), Mike (Leone), Theresa Barto, Bill (Karlin), Paul (Debbie), Eileen Harris(Will), Joe, Mary Klenke (Andy). Bernie was the godfather to several nieces, nephews and close family friends. Left behind nearly fifty nieces and nephews, numerous cousins, aunts, uncles and countless dear friends. Bernie has been described as "larger than life" and it wasn't just for his oversized stature. His genuine interest and investment in people is something that was understood from one interaction with him. He will be remembered for his hugs, big hands, big smile and even bigger heart. His faith guided him through life and now has guided him home. He will be greatly missed. A Rosary for Bernie will be held Sunday June 26th, 2016 at 6:00pm at The St.Thomas More Newman Center, 1850 Emerald St. Eugene, OR 97401. Following the Rosary will be an Irish wake at the Knights of Columbus Hall; additional parking is available down the street at St.Mary's Catholic Church after 6:30pm. Monday June 27th, 2016 at 12:00pm a Funeral Mass will be held at St.Paul Catholic Church, 1201 Satre St. Eugene, OR 97401. A reception following the funeral will be at Marist High School (Activity Center) at 2:00pm, Kingsley Rd., Eugene, OR 97401. All are welcomed, just as Bernie would have wanted it.
