ROBERT (BOB) BERNARD 1950 - 2018 After a long and courageous fight with cancer God opened His arms and took Bob home to rest. Our hearts and our love will be with Bob all the days of our lives. Left to mourn are his wife Sharon, daughter Kristi, son David, stepson Jeff, sister Mary Lou (Rob), brothers Brian (Hennie) and Gary (Mona), three grandsons Levi, Cayden and Connor, three granddaughters Tyla, Mia and Norah, Willow his puppy, and many cherished family members and friends. Bob was a one-in-a-million, a man of faith, caring, emotion, love and respect for all. Born on August 22 in Weyburn, Saskatchewan, Bob lived in Moose Jaw, Regina, Saskatoon and Edmonton before settling down in Winnipeg. He loved snowmobiling with his family, going to the cabin and loving the sound of waves rushing the shoreline. He loved thunderstorms, fishing, golfing and travelling to the sunny vacation spots. At the age of 15 he started with Westfair Foods/Superstore working up to his retirement. He took pride in his store and demonstrated unwavering work ethic and endless pride in his accomplishments and staff. He had a heart full of love for his family. Bob had a fabulous imagination and enjoyed pranks and silliness. Truly a man one had to love. Bob...Our love for you is never-ending! Rest in peace our beloved!

  • Mr. Bernard was a huge supporter in my college years. When guys had their own working roles and women had theirs. He helped me fight the union and allowed me the opportunity to become one of the first male cashiers in Canada. I’ve told his story for over 30 years. A a great man. - Posted by: Dean (Former employee ) on: Mar 16, 2018

  • Hi. I play the piano and organ at John XXIII Church. When I was asked to play on Thursday for a funeral I was surprised and shocked that it was for Bob. I am so sorry. I remember your family back to when Mark and Kristi were in the same Nursery School. They played at each other’s house a lot. I would bump into Bob at Superstore before he retired. I’m so sorry for your loss. - Posted by: Donna Vendramelli (Friend) on: Mar 13, 2018
