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.
