Bernie, as a long term State Government Nominee in the Mansfield Shire Water Industry, played a very important role in my appointment and ongoing engagement as GM of Mansfield District Water Board and former local water authorities. A very fine friend and respected industry colleague. RIP Bernie.March 4, 2022

Adrian Cummins talked me into helping him cart hay for his father in 1971 at Merton at the then very attractive rate of 5 cents per bale. We used Bernie’s old Ford V8 truck with no pick up loader or elevator. The going rate for working with Titch Crocker and Joe Hutchinson was 2 cents a bale with a 1951 Austin truck, pick up loader and elevator.March 17, 2022
