Bernard ZINCK

Zinck; Bernard, Garfield. Bernard was born in Port Alberni, BC, March 14th, 1930. He passed away suddenly June 28th, 2014. He was married to his best friend Janet Zink for 62 years. Bernard will be dearly missed by his wife and two daughters, Geraldine Britton (Lindsay) and Elaine Smart (Jim); four grandchildren, Melanie Litster (Doug), Cory Britton (Shalayah), Mike Smart and Jessica Kiesz (Michael); seven great grandchildren, Gavin and Lucas Litster, Seth Smart, Braxton Britton, Ella, Gabriel and Isaiah Kiesz. He was predeceased by his parents Doras and Garfield Zinck, sister Lois; survived by his sisters Aldine and Marie and brother Lawrence, brothers-in-law Lyle Johnson and sister-in-law Pauline Burke. Bernard was owner/operator of Bernie’s Repair since 1972 and was still going strong. His greatest joys in life were being with his family. He loved the weekly bike rides through Rosedale with his wife and playing his guitar and piano. Bernard loved animals and if you so desire please make a donation to the local SPCA, that would be appreciated. As requested, there will be no service. A small family gathering will be determined at a later day. Thank you for all your well wishes.
