Bernie was born January 6, 1927 in Calgary Alberta to Edouard and Anne Marie Rostaing. Bernie grew up in the Kelsey area and did many things in his life.

Bernie met and married Doris in 1974. They settled on their farm and lived there until Doris passed away in 2017. Bernie then moved into Rosealta Lodge. He loved it there, where he resided until his passing on November 29th.

Left to cherish his memory are Doris' children Linda (Arnold) Johnson of Ohaton, Brian Johnson of Calgary, Wayne Johnson of Whitecourt, and Nancy Beasley of Camrose; and his siblings Marie Gallant of Camrose, Edward (Patsy) Rostaing of Bawlf, and Henriette (Harold) Hauser of Camrose.


Bernie was predeceased by his wife Doris;  parents Edouard and Anne Marie; and sister Terry Gervais.
