As a child I spent time riding bikes and playing football in the same neighborhood as the Witsbergers. I can recall many occasions of sitting on their front porch or playing in their backyard and Bernie would come out to talk with us kids or even fill in as quarterback for our football teams! Those were good days and I miss the dearly. May God continue to love and protect Karen, Karl, all the of the family, friends and acquaintances who mourn the passing of this fine man.

Karl, we are so sorry for the loss of your father. I was blessed to have had some comments with him in facebook. His comments were always so kind.

Bernie was a quiet man but was a caring man with a big heart. When my dog passed away he sent me a letter about mans best friend..."the dog". To think he had thought about me being sad really touched my heart

We had such a great neighborhood, and Bernie and Shirley were parents to a lot of crazy kids they didn't have on their own. The Witsbergers helped everyone who needed help. Karen and Karl, I am so sorry for your loss. Your mom and dad were special to all us kids. Love and prayers.
