Anthony J. Bernier

Anthony “Tony” J. Bernier, 89, died peacefully in his sleep on the morning of April 4, 2020. A

lifelong samaritan, he gave his all to fulfill the wishes of those around him. His dedication to his

hometown of Brunswick, Maine resonates through his philanthropic endeavors through his

memberships in the local Elks Lodge, Santa Fund, and his devotion to civic service by

volunteering every election cycle. After serving his country in the United States Marine Corps

during the Korean War, he returned home to the town he loved to settle down with his wife, now

re-united, Muriel for whom he devotedly married for 60 years. Upon his relocation to Havelock,

North Carolina, he continued his community service through his faithful volunteerism whether

through Annunciation Catholic Church, The Knights of Columbus, the Havelock City Police

Department, or through any other community outreach he could find, he was an exemplar of

commitment; one that could not be wavered. His legacy will be remember by his survived

family: daughter and son-in-law Mary Bernier Glynn and Richard Glynn, and grandchildren

Patrick Glynn, Rebecca Glynn, Carrie Bernier and Joseph Bernier, as well as his sister Connie

two great-grandchildren, and several nieces and nephews. He has been preceded in death by his

seven of his brothers, two of his sisters, and his son John Bernier. On April 20, 2020, Tony

would have celebrated his 90th birthday surrounded by his loving family, both related and

communal. In lieu of said celebration, his family asks of those who loved him to do as he would

have wanted and support their communities in any feasible manner. The family also asks for

Tony to be remembered as he was: a man of devotion, conviction, and unrelenting love for those

around him. Services to be scheduled at a time TBD.
