  3. So so sorry for your loss, Aunt Louise and everyone else. He was a no nonsense guy. You always knew where you stood with Bernie. He had a good heart, was smart and liked to be right. Now he and my Dad (Bill Proulx) can argue in heaven together and when they do, I’m sure we will be having one hellva storm down here!

  4. I am so sorry to hear of Bernie’s passing. He was a neighbour at one time, friend and colleague/mentor on sour gas and oil drilling. I admired his knowledge and ability to express himself at the negotiating table. He will be sadly missed!

    Clint and Anne Schwalbe
