Bernard J. Berube Sr., 73, of Plainville passed away surrounded by his loving family on January 2, 2022 at Hartford Hospital. He was the loving husband to Linda B. (Ouellette) Berube for 51 years.
Bernard was born in St. John, Maine on May 10, 1948 son to the late Elise Berube. Growing up he made many lasting memories alongside his uncle, Joseph Albert Berube, who was more like a brother to him. Following high school graduation, Bernard enlisted in the United States Marine Corp and was honorably discharged having served during Vietnam. A Purple Heart recipient, Bernard was proud of his service to our country and humbly represented his American pride with his fellow Marines. He retired as a Postal Supervisor from the USPS and continued to work his fun job as a limo driver for Premier, where he found much enjoyment in driving. In his spare time, he collected items and began a hobby of selling these treasures on eBay. He liked to watch professional wrestling and cherished the photograph he had with a professional well-known wrestler, Robert Gibson, who was also a friend to Bernard. Bernard was a friend to many and those who knew him couldn’t help but love him. He was a selfless, dedicated husband, father, and grandfather and will be missed sorely.
In addition to the love of his life and soulmate, Linda, Bernard is survived by his son, Bernard J. Berube Jr. and his wife, Maria, his daughter, Lisa Alicea and her husband, Daniel Sr., his grandchildren, Nathan Berube, Isabelle Berube, and Daniel Alicea Jr., and his siblings, Donna, Dwayne, Doreen, Darlene, Deborah, Dale, and Dana. He was predeceased by his sister, Deanna.
