Bernard George ‘Bernie’    Lush

Passed on: November 7th, 2017

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and great friend, Bernard George ‘Bernie’ Lush, after a brief and courageous battle with cancer on Tuesday, November 7, 2017. Born in Sydney on February 14, 1947, he was the son of the late John and Sarah (King) Lush.
Bernie was employed as a mechanic at Seaboard Tire where he worked until his illness. He was also a volunteer fire fighter with the Port Hawkesbury Fire Department. He loved to spend his summers camping in Lake Ainslie, where he made life-long friends and enjoyed campfires over a few Olands. He touched a lot of hearts with his humor, quick wit and sarcastic remarks. He will be greatly missed by those who were fortunate to have known him.
He is survived by his loving wife of 48 years, Gloria Snow; sons, Bernie (Jennifer), Port Hawkesbury, Vance (Pavlina), Langley, BC, and daughter, Cindy (Cary), Inverness; grandchildren, Andrew, Nicholas, Tristan, Maegan, Rebecca and Sophia; brother, Jack (Joan); sisters, Cecilia Oliver, Mary Breen, Delores Penny, Pauline (Bud) Somers, Theresa Farrell, all of Sydney and Margie Bethune, Toronto; sister-in-law, Elsie Lush; mother-in-law, Mary Snow; brother-in-law Kansas (Judy) Snow, and numerous nieces and nephews.
Bernie was predeceased by his brother, Percy, and sisters, Geraldine Stanwick and Katherine Bartlett.
Visitation will be held Friday, November 10 from 3-6 p.m. in the Dennis Haverstock Funeral Home, 724 Granville St., Port Hawkesbury. There will be no funeral service.
Donations in Bernie’s memory may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society or Strait Richmond Palliative Care.
