Remembering the life of Randall Carl Bernardy.
Randy Bernardy passed away April 30th, 2016 at his home in Nevis, MN with his wife Margo and his brother- and sister-in-law at his side.
Born August 27th, 1953, he was the fourth of fi ve children. After graduating from Fargo North High in 1971, he volunteered for the Army. He trained at Fort Leonard Wood in Missouri and served at Cambrai Fritsch Kaserne in Germany. With a degree from North Dakota State School of Science in Wahpeton, he began working at Steiger Tractor Company as a CNC Machinist in 1976. He continued his working career skillfully manufacturing tractor parts for the company which became Case IH and then Case New Holland. He retired November 2015 after working loyally for the tractor manufacturing company for more than 30 years.
Randy was dedicated to family life. He married Margo Hilber on October 1st, 1982 at Church of the Nativity. Together they raised and nurtured three children: Melissa, Jenny and Jared. Throughout his life with his warmth and charisma, he spent time telling stories and playing cards with his family and friends; and with his generosity, talent with woodworking, and wide array of tools, he contributed to many home improvement projects.
In addition to his love of family, he also loved the lakes in Minnesota. Boating, fi shing, four-wheeling, snowmobiling, grilling, gathering around the campfi re and listening to the loons on the lake gave him great contentment and joy. From childhood to retirement, his truly treasured time was spent with family at the lake.
