Bert is survived by his wife of sixty-five years, Annette; son, Brian Resnik; daughter, Eve Resnik Beutler; and grandchildren, Dahvia, Kiptyn, and Bryce.
He was known as "Grandpa" and "Great Grandpa" to fourteen other close family members and brought kindness, joy, and humor wherever he went. His memory will always be treasured in the hearts of those who knew him.
