It is an unfortunate situation. He was a great man and will truly me missed by all that knew him. RIP.
This is so surreal...not right. You are missed so much...now you know just how much my sister did love you as well as realize how important you were to so many. We've just lost another good soul way too young. Fly high homie, i bet the view is breathtaking. Much love...
Out of respect for his friends and family, I'll zip it.
Rest In Peace...we will always be family and know you are missed and loved so much...wherever you're at I know in my heart its got to be better than here on this hell. much love forever...see you on the other side.
We went over the bridge as the search crews were looking for him. I would say best judgement was not used, the lake level is real low and it's a far drop. Don't have any idea why you would want to pull a stunt like this with those water conditions from that height.
rider...smart idea! o-no-bigguy...we as his family dont even know what he was thinking let alone anyone else. he was a paramedic, he wasn't an idiot, he wasn't mentally unstable...we dont know why its out of character for him. so he wasn't "pulling no stunt" and he won't be pulling any ever again now so anyone with a desire to add their two cents when now the only thing that matters is his family that is still living can get through this as quickly as possible so it doesnt wreck us again. understand? i hope so...i do thank you though because your comments couldve been WAY more harmful and hurtful. Bernie was someone you would've wanted as your friend, he loved HUGE!
So sorry to hear that.My prayers are with you in this awful time
hpybys9, you're right, no one knows what happened. By the way, comments from strangers are not important. I hope you come to peace with this.
I certainly hope they are able to recover this man so his family and friends can gain some closure. RIP.
I will forever miss you old friend. We had a lot of good times together and I will never forget any of them. You have taught me so many things, but the most important thing you taught me was to treat everyone around you with respect. This one lesson I took from our friendship, which has spanned 30 years, made me the person I am today. Thank you and rest in piece buddy.
Jennui - They recovered his body yesterday.
Ryder - comments from strangers may not be important as you say, but they still affect his family and friends. There is no reason to be rude, hurtful or disrespectful to anyone at a time like this. Bernie was an amazing individual who was loved and respected by everyone he crossed paths with. It is an unfortunate situation will always be a mystery.
thank you, rider...that shows greatly your character. i appreciate it! my sister is who i cant wait to see smile again first...R.I.P.
I knew Bernie through my son at his work in Antioch and know Bernie LOVED the water, fishing and his boats! I for one will miss Bernie very much! He was such a great person to be around and my son's best friend! I just can't believe this happened. Bernie I for one will miss you very much, I know your in heaven know watching over us. God bless you Brother! I will keep you and your family in my prayers.
My guess is he was the kind of man who loved life and a little adventure. I'm sure he had no idea that this would be the outcome. Try to appreciate the fact that he enjoyed his life & lived it to the fullest. Sounds like the kind of guy I would like to have known. Time does heal. Hope your time of sorrow & mourning is as short as possible.
