With Clare by his side and a strong sense of faith, they raised 9 children. Many happy and fond memories were held around special gatherings as family was the most important thing in Bert's life. He had a love and appreciation of horses, goats and all nature. He enjoyed carpentry and built his own house and barns. he marvelled at the many types of wood there were. He had a good sense of humour and enjoyed teasing his children and grandchildren. Throughout his life, his brightest moments were when the wee ones would come to visit - his eyes would light up. Bert had a love of learning which he passed on to all of those around him. Bert has resided at the Bonnechere Manor for the past two and a half years. Many, many thanks to the staff of HM2N and HM2S and Dr DiPaolo for their dedication and attention to Bert. An extra special thank you to Tanya who helped the family tremendously in Bert's last days.
