May 14, 1941 – Calgary, AB
February 15, 2015 – Okotoks, AB
Our Dad, Bernard “Bernie” Crawford McNally Wynder, of Calgary born May 14th, 1941 entered his rest into the arms of our Savior on Sunday, February 15, 2015.
Dad came into this world with almost nothing, but we witnessed how he left this life the richest man on the earth because of the impact and deep relationships he fostered. Dad was a best friend, hero and lovingly referred to as “Coach” by many. Dad loved sports, in fact excelled at them and won many championships as both player and coach. Dad also loved golf and was proficient at the game; he taught many to love golf and had great joy in sharing his gift. Our Dad was known everywhere he went, he made a lasting impression on others, and you couldn’t help but know and love Bernie. Dad was exceedingly proud of his children; he never missed the chance to tell each of us how much he loved us. He was our greatest champion, and always in our corner. His greatest treasure was his deep rooted faith and membership in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Dad served in both the Cardston Alberta Temple, and the Calgary Alberta Temple, this is where he would shine. He loved his Heavenly Father, he was proud to tell you that the Savior was his best and most trusted friend. Thank you Dad for your generosity, service, love and friendship, you’ve won the big game.
Dad is survived by our mother Sharon (nee Stephenson) Wynder, his sweetheart, companion and wife of 43 years, and truly his everything. He leaves the lasting gifts of his love, laughter, friendship, testimony and spirit with his children and grandchildren, Daria (Nathan) Muirhead (Dylan, Joshua, Brigs, Noah and Lola), Courtnee (Mike) Lund (Justin, Andrew), Brett (Andrea) Wynder (Jayelle), and Cory Cole. Dad is also lovingly survived by his many siblings from the Wynder and McNally families.
