Dennis George Bernard of Edgartown died on April 24. He was 64.

Dennis was a very kind person who loved life. He was a simple man who found joy in going for walks around town, visiting Daybreak Clubhouse in Vineyard Haven, and spending time with close friends and his beloved mother, Louise M. Bernard, who died last April. He always had a smile on his face and was a joy to be around. He will be missed greatly by everyone who knew him.

He is survived by his nephew, Alex Bernard, and niece, Ellen Blodgett.

A graveside service will be held on Saturday, May 5 at 2 p.m. at New Westside Cemetery, Robinson Road in Edgartown, officiated by Rev. Michael Nagle.

Donations in his memory can be made to Hope Hospice, P.O. Box 4188, Vineyard Haven, MA 02568.

Arrangements are under the care of the Chapman, Cole and Gleason Funeral Home,
