I have known Bernie since 1986 when he and I were in a field of five candidates for the Planning Board. The voters split their votes, and I eked through. Bernie immediately offered me whatever assistance which he could provide. Thus started our long association.

In 1989 Bernie started his service on the Planning Board, service which continued until 2014 when he decided not to seek reelection. During his 25 years on the Board he served the Town admirably. He understood the Town. He seemed to know almost all the residents and ensured that their interests were never overlooked.

He was engaging and friendly. He was collegial with his colleagues on the Board. He would exchange views and ideas with the other members and effectively advocate for what he considered was best for the Town. His colleagues respected his judgment and knowledge. During his years on the Board, the Board's decisions were thoughtful and sound. These were good years for the Board, and Bernie deserves much of the credit.

Although most of my interactions with Bernie occurred through our work on the Planning Board, besides being a colleague Bernie and his wonderful wife Marion were friends. They were a great team with many admirers.

During his long life Bernie had numerous positive accomplishments. He will be remembered with appreciation and fondness. It was my privilege to know him. The Town is in his debt.

My condolences to his family.

To the best brother and brother-in-law.... You will be missed. Now You are a peace. Your life has been a true testimony to the art of providing for others. Your dedication to your family and the Town of Milton was unparalleled. It was a priviledge to have loved and known you. Say hi to all of our loved ones in Heaven. It is comforting to know that when we close our eyes you will be there to welcome us home
