It is with profound sadness and broken hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Bernard (Bernie/Bunny) Francis Timmons on July 20, 2022.  Born in New Waterford on August 24, 1945, to Kenny and Celeste (Williams) Timmons. He was a proud husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, brother, and friend. 

Bernie was an extremely kind man with a love for animals, comic books, Spaghetti Westerns, game shows and music. He had a great sense of humor and a love of adventure; he was game for anything.
