I got to know Bernie when I worked for a foodservice company selling the bar food products. I know Bernie sometimes bought things he could have done without but he did so to give me an order. Always had my back in that regard. I'm glad he invited me to participate in the golf outing which I enjoyed even buying all the golf outing steaks from me one year. The picture of Bernie in the obituary says it all. My condolences to Chris, Remo, Robin and Dominic. We've lost one of the good ones.

To my best freind from Canevin High School , John Carroll University and US Trucklines, I know you are truly in a better place and looking down on your family and friends from heaven. I have too many great memories of you to try to express. Sufficient to say, you were always there for me when I was in need of support or just a strong freind to confide in.
Peace be with you Bern. I'm missing you so much
You' old old freind Rob Wojtczak.
