WYNDER, Bernard Crawford

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.

Funeral Services will be held at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (14540 Parkland Blvd. S.E.) on Friday, February 20, 2015 at 11:30 a.m. A viewing will be held prior from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

In living memory of Bernie Wynder, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Fish Creek, 14441 BANNISTER ROAD S.E. Telephone: 403-256-9575.

    Dear Sharon and family,
    Our sincere sympathy is extended to you at this time. What a blessing to have a knowledge of the gospel in our lives. We remember Bernie with appreciation for his cheerful smile and his love of life. I’m so glad you directed me to where he was working in the temple that day we were there for our granddaughter’s sealing. Bernie recognized me and a smile lit up his face. Thank you for that memory. It has been a privilege to know him ever since his days in Rosemary. May the peace of the gospel sustain you all. Roselynn and Bill Easter

    Dear Sharon & Family:
    Both Ken and I would like to express our most sincere and heartfelt sympathy on the loss of your dear husband, best friend, soul mate, Dad and Grandpa. I feel most fortunate in having crossed paths with Bernie many years ago through our working together at TransAlta. Bernie was a very quiet, sincere person, a perfect gentleman and very humble about his accomplishments. Please take comfort Sharon in knowing you are surrounded with a loving family and friends, and Bernie’s place in heaven is assured.

    Dear Sharon and family

    We were saddened to hear of Bernie’s passing. We always enjoyed our visits whenever our paths crossed. He was a good influence on those whose lives he touched. When I spoke to our granddaughter Ava Salt she told me that she still remembers the Primary lesson on being a peacemaker that Brother Wynder taught them.
    Sincere condolences,
    Sheila and Curtis
