Bernard was known to all as a loving, kind, and funny person who was always there for those who needed him. He loved his family and friends immensely, there was nothing he wouldn’t do for them. He found joy in planning and attending local punk shows, going for long drives, working, wearing crazy socks, playing pranks on his family, and above all, fixing and modifying his car with his friend Dave.
Bernard is loved by many and will be truly missed. Due to COVID-19, private services will be held on Tuesday, September 22 at 5 pm. All are welcomed to join through a private live video link found on https://www.reardonfh.com/obituary/Bernard-MakuaoleIII.
