Bernie leaves to cherish his memory his wife Ceil; daughters, Jill and Nancy; son Todd and his wife Kelly; grandchildren, Kierstyn, Brian and Brennan; sister Judy Bobb; his good buddy Randy Moyer, along with countless other friends.  He joins his son Brian, who preceded him in death.  Born in Detroit to Bennie and Helen Cheladyn, Bernie served four years in the US Air Force.  During this time, he met his wife of 57 years while stationed in Germany.  He was a selfless man who lived for his family.  Bernie would tell you that the best years of his life were spent caring for his grandchildren who he loved dearly.  Bernie created many traditions for his family, his favorite being the annual fishing trips to Canada with his son, grandsons and friends.  He loved to go to Drummond Island with Randy and the guys.  They had countless “good times.” He will be missed and forever loved for his sense of humor, kind heart and giving nature.
