Bernard Keefer aka "Bernie" born February 28, 1931 went to be with the lord and his son Warren on December 18th at his vacation home in Santa Barbara. Bernie left behind his wife Norma, sons Brad (Kim) and Guy, daughter Roxanne (Gary), grandchildren Colene, Ryan, Neil, Garnet, Kendall, Dillon, Tara, Sean, Makaela, Madison, Shaena, Jacob and 1 great grandson, Josiah; not to mention many others who knew and loved him. Bernie, a loving husband and father was married to his wife Norma for 58 years. Bernie and Norma met in Hawaii while he was proudly serving in the US Navy and haven't been apart since; which is a huge inspiration to us all. The family moved to Santa Barbara in 1970 from Pasadena, CA and owned and operated HOME Furnace and Plumbing Companies. Bernie and Norma spent the last 8 years enjoying life in Las Vegas, NV. Bernie was a member of the 613 Elks Lodge in Santa Barbara and was an avid golfer and hot rod enthusiast. Bernie was also known as the" handsomest man in the NAVY" as he would brag to all of his grandchildren. Bernie lived life to the fullest and loved to travel and see the world. Bernie, you will be greatly missed. Services will be held at Calvary Chapel Santa Barbara on Friday December 30, 2011 at 2:00 pm. Any donations can be made to Calvary Chapel Santa Barbara or Hospice and Visiting Nurse Association of Santa Barbara.
