Bernerd (Boone) V. Ackerson of Wonewoc, Wisconsin, at the age of 74 years 3 months 21 days and after a long battle with cancer is at peace on Sunday, March 30 2014, with family by his side. He was born in Blackhawk County, Iowa, on December 9, 1939, to Bernerd C. and Florence E. (Gulick) Ackerson. He moved to the Hillsboro, Wisconsin area when he was 18. He farmed most of his life, worked and retired after 17 years at Brunner Mfg. He married Janet M. Helgerson on April 14, 1979.

Bernerd is survived by,
…his wife Janet;
……Robert (Nora) Murry,
……David (Joanne) Murry, and
……LaVonne (Travis) Henze;
…Six Grandchildren;
…Five Great Grandchildren;
……Judith McFerran of Illinois;
……Herman Ackerson of California;
…Two Aunts of Iowa;
…Two Half-Brothers of Iowa;
…And many cousins, nieces, and nephews.

His enjoyment was working outside, landscaping and gardening, country music dancing, auctions, yard sales, antiques, classic cars, family pets, and hosting cookouts for family and friends. Until his illness, he always had a "zip in his step and a smile on his face." He could keep up with all the grandchildren in the yard, and loved every minute of it. He will be greatly missed by family and friends.

A private family service will be at a later date, per his wishes.
