During World War II Bernard served in the army from 1942 to 1946. After the war Bernard returned to Saskatoon, SK to continue his education at the University of Saskatchewan. In 1951 Bernard married the love of his life Gwen Hogan and they began their life together in Alberta, eventually settling in Calgary.

He was a kind, loving and generous husband, father, grandfather and friend. He was blessed with good health and loved being surrounded by his family and friends. He and Gwen travelled the world together but his favourite place of all was the peacefulness of his ranch. He also enjoyed spending winters playing golf at his home in Scottsdale, AZ.
