I reconnected with Bert on Facebook & we played Bejeweled Blitz together. Occasionally, we'd chat online. Bert was an intelligent, thoughtful & kind man. It was gratifying to see all the wonderful comments from his former students. Many pointed out Bert's patience & guidance - even saying the Bert was the reason they became teachers!

What a legacy! Bert posted many pictures of his beloved granddaughter, Elsa. He truly loved his family & friends. The world lost a good man. We'll miss you, Bert.

I remember Bert as a gentle spirit, truly nice guy.  Not suprised he built a loving family.

Bert was always a kind, modest, unassuming person, and from what I knew of him in high school, I am not surprised by the legacy he left in the lives of his students, his church, and his family.. One incident has always remained in my memory. The restaurant hangout in Plymouth Park Shopping Center, Chubby's, I think it was, had large floor to ceiling glass panels, and it was sometimes difficult to determine where the actual door opening was. One winter night, Bert, wearing a heavy coat, walked right through one of the glass panels, completely shattering it, and was uninjured as I recall. Bert was embarrassed, but still maintained that calm demeanor. I still chuckle about it today. As a grandfather, I am especially praying for that little granddaughter whom I know must have loved Bert so much.

Bert was a great example of how to act and how to treat others. I have fond memories of a gentle giant.  What a great man he became. May The Lord give his family the peace that passes all understanding.   Thanks for being my friend.            Ed Kinkeade

Bert was one of the first persons that I remember meeting at IHS.  He was a really nice guy particularly to someone who had just entered the public school arena and was still trying to find his way in the sometimes over whelming world of a giant IHS.  Rest in peace my friend.
