Bernie worked in my section in EPA and he was always willing to share his knowledge, experiences, and expertise to assist his fellow co-workers in their work assignments too. He had a great smile, sense of humor, friendly demeanor and he was indeed a treasure to work with. He will be sorely missed. May the peace of God comfort his family and to rejoice in knowing that Bernie now resides with our Heavenly Father.
