Bert was born in Denver, Colorado. He graduated from St. Joseph's High School in 1957. He joined the U.S. Army in 1962. Bert married Susan on August 4, 1962. He was the owner of a paint contracting business, until he retired in 2000. Upon retirement, he and Susan moved to North Padre Island, where they had the opportunity to enjoy warm weather and resided by the beach, before returning to Denver in 2005.
His passions included traveling, bowling, playing the accordion, sport events (especially his beloved Broncos!), gardening (he had enough tomatoes for the entire neighborhood, and then some!) and spending time with his family and friends.
Bert's energy was incredible! Even after retirement, he was rarely idle, constantly on the move with working on some kind of project. He was a loyal friend, generous, kind, funny, and was always there and available to help someone out. Bert was loved by so many and his presence will be sorely missed.
