HOSEY, Bernard

December 12, 1948 – London, Ontario
April 11, 2019 – Calgary, Alberta

Bernard Hosey of Calgary, AB, passed away on April 11, 2019 at the age of 70 years.

Bernard was born in London, Ontario on December 12, 1948; and moved to Calgary, Alberta as a young boy. He spent some time living in the Mirimichi, however he considered Calgary his home.

Bernard had a love for auto wreaking, towing and selling scrap. He found great joy traveling the countryside looking for scrap vehicles.

Bernard had a passion for children, dogs and helping people less fortunate then himself. He lived by the rule “Don’t judge a book by its cover” and was of the belief that everybody had skeletons in their closet.

Bernard’s most memorable vacations were when he spent time in Mexico. He enjoyed his first trip with friends from the Mirimichi in his twenties and again in his sixty’s at Kimberly’s wedding.

Bernard is survived by his brother Gerry; his children Robert (Richelle) and Kimberly; and grandsons, Teo and Booker. Bernie was predeceased by his mother Mary and father Lawrence Hosey; and numerous dear friends.

As per Bernie’s wishes no formal services will be held; instead Bernie requested you spend time doing something you loved in his memory. If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to the The Alex Community Health Centre #101, 2840 2 Ave SE, Calgary AB T2A 7X9, . Condolences may be forwarded through

In living memory of Bernard Hosey, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Eastside, 5388 MEMORIAL DRIVE NE, Calgary, AB, T2A 3V9, Telephone: 403- 248-8585.

  2. Bernie was one of my first friends when I arrived in Calgary. He was always willing to help someone with auto parts…or getting right in there getting his hands greasy to help. If he knew someone who needed a meal…he was always willing to help with that too. Bernie had a big heart and I will never forget him…he will always be in my heart….shine your big flashlight from heaven Bernie when the sky is dark…we will know that it’s you. Condolences to all who had the chance to love him.
