HEBNER, Bernard Gerald
Bernard Hebner of Huntsville, passed away peacefully at Granite Ridge, Gravenhurst on Friday May 7th, in his 83rd year. Bernie is survived by his children, Kelly, Donal and Lisa, 5 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren. Survived by siblings Marjorie Blackburn, Laura Wilson, Anita (Earl) Bryant, Gregory (Sylvia) Hebner, Nancy (Richard) Schroder and Rudy Hebner. Predeceased by his siblings Pat (Earl) Gray, Carole Troughton and Barbara Hammond.
Bernie was a fiercely independent person who was happiest in the bush. He enjoyed the simple things in life, such as coffee and a good breakfast of bacon and eggs. He was so dedicated to those simple things, that he orchestrated “the great escape” also known as “a jail break”, with i.v. pole in tow, to get to Timmies, while waiting in hospital for a quadruple bypass. But on a serious note, he was extremely funny and witty, generous, a lifelong blood donor, has won an award for bravery. (The one time he received official recognition for coming to the aid of others.., of which there are numerous occasions).
He will be especially missed by Kelly (Rob), Lisa (Mike), Robert and Andrew (Cara).
In keeping with Bernard's wishes, cremation will take place. As an expression of sympathy memorial donations can be made to the Huntsville Hospital Foundation.
