He leaves a son, Fred Jonas, and his wife, Geri and his sons Brandon and Michael Jonas; two daughters, Eileen, wife of Steve Schongold of Sharon and her daughter Alyse, wife of Robert Morgenstern and Vivian, wife of Elliot Honig and her sons Joshua Honig and Avrom Honig and his wife, Leah. He was predeceased by his sister, Florence Lowe.

He was an Army veteran of 4 years serving in World War II. Following his army service he completed courses at Worcester Polytechnic Institute and became a structural draftsman for Riley Stoker for 43 years until his retirement. Following his retirement he became a Pinkerton guard at the Worcester Art Museum.

He was one of the early founding members of Yeshiva Achei Timimim.

I truly enjoyed my breakfast conversations with Bernie when he came down for breakfast at Eisenberg. He loved his wife and kids so much, and was so proud of his wife's book and website.
It was so much fun to watch him take pictures of the snow piled up at Eisenberg during this past winter's snowstorms. He had to get the perfect angle on his new iPad to show how big the icicles were. When he was in a play that they put on over the Holidays, he had it filmed on the same iPad, so we could all watch it the next day. I will always remember Bernie, a kind hearted thoughtful man.
