Bernard’s passion was cars. His car was always shined, never any dirt or dust on his car. He also loved playing cards, dancing, traveling and dressing to the nine. Everything must match from head to toe. He enjoyed living life to the fullest.

Bernard retired from Kennedy Airport after many years as a Skycap and baggage handler.

He leaves to cherish his memory wife Fannie, one son Bernard (Edwina) and one daughter Cheryl. One brother, Donald Martin of Victoria Virginia; One sister, Jane Ghee of Farmville, Virginia.
