Bernard L. June, Jr. – 3/30/2022

April 2nd, 2022

Bernard ( Bernie) L June, Jr.

Bernie was born on May 17 1955 in Chester, PA at Sacred Heart Hospital.  Bernie was the first-born son and the third child of seven, born to Bernard L June, Sr and Alma J. June (nee Grogan).  Bernie lived the early part of his life in Twin Oaks (Upper Chichester) PA and loved fishing.  His favorite Uncle was Uncle Bill, who was his fishing buddy and took him many times.

Bernie went to Holy Savior School for early education and then transferred to Chichester Schools.  After school, Bernie was in the Army for a short time.  He struck out on his own, in terms of working, starting first at our family hoagie shop.  Bernie was always a go-getter no matter what else he was doing, he loved working. He spent time in construction and finally spent most of his career as a professional painter.

Bernie has two sons, Jesse and Joe June.  They were his whole world.  He is survived by both his sons, Jesse and Joe as well as his grandchildren, Lexie and Kayleigh Gallagher and Jurnie and Jolie June; step-daughter, Jaime Williams; sisters Kathleen McInerney, (John), Susan Wanner, (Gary), Terry Scattolini (Mike); brothers, David June, Rich June (Deb), and Frank June (Leslie) as well as many nieces and nephews.

Bernie was also a long-time member in recovery, and spent many years in the State of Delaware groups.  He helped many people to recover and was an example of perseverance in recovery.  He passed at a time when he was a happy and sober person.  We will all miss him immensely.  In lieu of flowers, please donate to the American Heart Association or a recovery program of your choosing.

His funeral service will be held on Wednesday, April 6th at 8pm at the Joseph A. Ward Funeral Home 1459 Market St. Linwood, PA.  Friends and family are invited to his viewing on Wednesday from 6-8pm.  Interment will be on Friday, April 8th at 11am at Lawn Croft Cemetery.

  1. Bernie was memorable to me mostly, one of many cousins from our childhood. A vivacious person and fun to be with. His mom made gnocchis at Christmas and we were invited, my 4 sisters and I and parents. Because I moved out West I didn’t hardly see Bernie as an adult. God Bless Bernie’ family, I’m sure he’s in a beautiful place.

  2. First cousin on mother’s side-so many on both sides of our giant extended family. Saw a lot of Bernie and his siblings, as well as some 20+ other firsts. Bernie stood out for me because he had the most infectious, time stopping smile I’d ever experienced. And even though we’d parted contact as we “matured”, whenever I saw him the smile remained as powerful as ever. I’ve heard he shared this with all he knew. Bless his heart ♥️

  3. Bernie was a high school friend . We kept in touch thru FaceBook My only regret is that cup of coffee we kept saying we were going to get, and sadly never did.
    Rest easy my forever friend.

  4. What a sad loss in this world. Bernie used to love when I played harmonica in a band with his brother Frank, his Bless you for helping others in recovery like myself. Rest in Peace

  5. God bless you Bernie. You helped me in recovery with your fruits and vegetables stories. I still think of them today. God bless
