Bert was born in Fenwood, Saskatchewan. In his early years, Bert loved playing the guitar and accordion and was in a group that played on the radio. He worked at different jobs but then discovered the insurance business, and for 40 years he was an insurance broker, for which he won many awards.
Bert had a unique personality that drew many people to him. In his later years he moved to the Parksville/Nanaimo area. Bert and Sharon loved to travel and went to many places which gave them many happy memories. Bert also enjoyed working in the garden and at Christmas he lit up his home with lots of lights and decorations.
There will be a tea in Bert’s honour on Saturday, January 10th between 1-4 pm at 6241 Farber Way (Crest 2) near Pleasant Valley School.
