It’s with a heavy heart I write that my beloved dad has passed away at 8.14pm on Thursday 23rd May in Ward 1 of Berwick Infirmary with myself, mum and Marion by his side. 

Dad was such a strong character right to the end and was still able to try and smile or laugh at a joke despite having a very difficult Passing.

Dad was quite a unique character and he loved telling his stories to anyone who was listening, and I know anyone who knew him would have a fair few to tell us about him too . 

Dad will be sorely missed by many people  but no one more so than mum, the fur babies and I.

There¬†will always be a hole in our lives now until we are reunited but will take comfort in knowing that he’s with our beloved Pabi and Harvey.

We also want to thank everyone for all your prayers for dad.


Bernard’s funeral will be at Houndwood Crematorium at 1.30 pm on 10th June and a small purvey will be held at the Castle Hotel following the service.

All welcome.

The funeral service will be live streamed and it will remain available for 28 days, please let Mhairi know if you would like the link sent to you.

Family flowers only please. Retiring collection in aid of B.A.R.K and the Swan and wildlife centre.
