John Graham Bernard, loving father and pizza man extraordinaire, born June 30, 1959 in Stirling, Scotland died August 27, 2019 at the Dorothy Ley Hospice, Toronto surrounded by the love of his family.
Devoted father of Heather and Matthew Bernard, husband of Diana Bernard (nee Rasetta), loving son of the late Andrew and Grace Bernard (nee Freeman) and brother of Hilary Lauzon (George). Uncle and great uncle to many grieving nieces and nephews. John will also be missed by Bandit and has gone to join Macho, another of his steadfast companions.
John will be remembered for his wonderful smile and sense of humor, his generosity, outgoing personality, his strength in the face of challenges and his determination to live independently as long as possible. He will also be remembered as owner and greeter at Milano’s Pizza, Etobicoke, home of the “best, best, best” pizza as John would tell everyone he met. A great big thank you to everyone at the Dorothy Ley Hospice and to all the wonderful people who helped John over the years
We love you Big One John and know you loved us too.
