July 1, 1943 - May 10, 2022

Leaving his family in deep sorrow, Bernard unexpectedly passed away in the early hours of May 10, 2022, at his home in St. Boniface from complications of Diabetes.
Left to cherish his memory are his sisters, Anna Lessard, Irène Arnaud; his brothers, Paul Léger, George Léger; sister-in-law Germaine Léger; and his abiding friend Kathy Veroneau. Also missing him greatly will be numerous nieces and nephews, who regarded Bernard as their favourite uncle due to his undoubtedly self-effacing good humour and caring personality, which endeared him to all who knew him.
Bernard studied barbering at the Molar Barber College and graduated with honours. He worked as a barber for many years.
Bernard was predeceased by his father Adelard (Pete) Léger; mother Beatrice (nee Veroneau); brother-in-law Roland Lessard; sister-in-law Hélène Léger; brother-in-law Gérald Arnaud; sister Cécile L'Arrivée and husband Gabrielle L'Arrivée.

Sleep well dear Bernard
until we are all together again.
