Bernard C Berns 2018

Bernard C. “Chuck” Berns died at home Wednesday, March 28, 2018. He was 89 years old. He was born in San Diego California in 1928 to Barney and Ann Berns (Riestenberg). A lifelong pilot, with over 100,00 hours of flight time, Chuck began his aviation career at the age of 15 with the purchase of his first airplane. He was fortunate to own and fly many different planes throughout his life, including a B-26, a Staggerwing Beech and a P51-D.
Chuck proudly served in… the US Army Infantry during the Korean War and was honorably discharged with the rank of Sgt. Afterwards he returned home to Buena Park, California and married his sweetheart, Shirley. They would’ve celebrated their 65th anniversary in May.
Chuck owned and operated Aircraft Associates Flying Service in Long Beach, California until being hired by the FAA in 1966 as an accident investigator. In 1971 he and his family transferred to Alaska, where they lived in Anchorage. As he continued his career with the FAA, Chuck and Shirley lived in San Jose, California, Fairbanks, Alaska and again San Jose where he retired in 1995 after 29 years of service.
They returned to Anchorage to be near their children and grandchildren. Chuck was a member of the CAP and worked with the cadets training in search and rescue and held the rank of Colonel. He was also a member of The Quiet Birdmen.
Chuck is survived by his beloved wife Shirley; his four children, Kathy, Steve, Chandelle & Barbara and their spouses; 11 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church on Wednesday April 4, 2018 at 10:30 am. Pallbearers will be his son Steve and grandsons Michael, Nathan, Joel, Ian and Graem.
Burial will be at Fort Richardson National Cemetery with full military honors.
The family would like to thank TLC, Tracy and especially Timothy, for the help, support and friendship you gave to our mom & dad.
