Bob Berner

Robert "Bob" Berner
August 28, 1934 to March 16, 2014
Robert Fred Berner (Bob), 79, passed away Sunday, March 16, 2014, in Arlington.

Memorial service: 2 p.m. Saturday at St. Peter and St. Paul Anglican Church, 3900 Morris Lane, Arlington, 76016, the Rev. Tom Hightower officiating. Inturnment of ashes in memorial garden. Reception: in parish hall following the service.

Bob was born August 28, 1934 in Chicago to Edward and Helen Berner. He lived in the Chicago area until 1976 when he was transferred to Arlington by Motorola with his wife Diane and their 4 children.

He was employed at Motorola and General Dynamics in Fort Worth. After his retirement he worked as an usher for the Texas Rangers Baseball Club and as a ticket taker for the Fort Worth Stock Show. He particularly enjoyed working at the Stock Show and interacting with the public.

Bob loved family gatherings, music, Texas Rangers Baseball, camping with his RV clubs, and his church activities. He served as a member of the vestry and youth director at St. Albanís Episcopal Church in Arlington. Recently he was coordinator of the Arlington Life Shelter ministry at St Peter and St Paul Anglican Church in Arlington.

In November 2009 he was diagnosed with Leukemia. He bravely battled the disease with exemplary determination, faith and courage. All who knew him were inspired by his example.

He was preceded in death by his parents and one grandchild, Jordon Lee Dillon.

Survivors: Wife Diane; daughters Michele Southwood, Rebecca Stocking; sons Paul Dillon, Stephen Dillon; sister Carol Vessels; son and daughter Mark Mueller, Deborah Tingen; 4 grandchildren Ashley Rinberger, Stephanie Stocking, Kristina Huff, and Jimmy Huff; one great-grandson, Jonah Robert Rinberger; Several nieces, nephews, and many friends and extended family members.

He will be greatly missed by all of us.

In Lieu of flowers a donation may be made to the Leukemia/Lymphoma Society of North Texas, or to the Arlington Life Shelter

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Thank you for the beautiful memorial to Bob on this forum, and for your kind thoughts and emails and cards. Bob loved all of the Boomer rallies, especially sitting around the campfire at night trading stories. He had truly missed going to the rallies, and we had made a New Year's resolution that this year we were going to make it to one somehow, some way, even if we had to stay in a hotel. Over the last 13 years so many of you have become like family to us, and no matter how long it had been since we had last seen you, once we hooked up with you again, we just started back right where we left off - that's true friendship. I have so many memories and photos of my sweet Bob at the Boomer rallies smiling and having a great time, and I will always treasure those. I miss him terribly, and there is a big hole in my heart now, but nothing can take those memories from me. I love you, dear friends, and you just might see me at one of the rallies this year! Love and blessings, Diane.
