Matthews, North Carolina - Bernard L. Wall (Bernie) – 88 of Matthews, NC, formerly of Northfield, NJ, passed away on Monday, August 23. He enlisted in the Air Force at 17-years old and served in the Korean Conflict and then became an Air Traffic Controller. He was a graduate of Stockton State College, NJ. He raised his family in Northfield, NJ and retired in Matthews, NC to be near his daughter and her family.
Bernie loved his family, his daily Starbucks coffee and being outside, especially if he could be near the ocean, fishing, swimming, working in his garden or feeding the birds in his yard. He fostered this love for the outdoors in both his children who carry on his legacy of growing gardens and appreciating nature. He was generous and quick with a smile for friends and strangers alike and had a wry sense of humor even in his final days.
He is survived by the love of his life, Mary Wall and their two children and four grandchildren. Son Tom Wall and his wife Mary and their three children Olia, Davis and Eva of Wellesley Hills, Mass. and daughter Kally Kowalski and her husband Jimmy and their daughter, Nastia of Matthews, NC.
Service will be private, and contributions may be made to Rotary of Matthews, NC or Brace Family YMCA of Charlotte NC.

My thoughts and prayers are with Mary and her family at this sad time. Bernie was my neighbor when we worked for the FAA in Atlantic City and a good friend. I will miss him.

As a colleague and a friend Bernie showed much patience and a great sense of humor. I enjoyed our talks and his way with students. His wife Mary, who was a great asset to ACCC while she worked there, is a special woman. My condolences to you and your family.

I was sorry to learn of Bernie's death. I have nice memories of him bringing Mary her morning coffee when she and I were volunteers together at the cash register at Matthews Help Center. Mary, I miss our chances to have lunch together and send my deepest sympathy to you and all your family.
