It is with broken hearts that the family of Kyle Raymond Thomas Bernard announce his passing which occurred on Friday, April 2, 2021. Born in Saint John, NB on November 2, 1989, he was the beloved son of Dwayne and Pam (Burley) Bernard of Kars, NB.
Kyle will be greatly missed and never forgotten by his family and friends. He was known for his beautiful blue eyes, his bear hugs, his contagious laugh and “Mega Watt Ginger Smile” that would light up any room. He was the most compassionate, understanding, strongest, happy giant you could ever meet; but he would also protect the ones he loves without hesitation. He was a kind-hearted man who would give the shirt off his back or the last cent he had in his pocket if you needed it, without expecting anything in return. He loved big family gatherings and parties, also spending time with his closest friends.
Kyle was a great carpenter, but he was the ultimate sports fanatic. He loved playing baseball and darts, he also enjoyed football, rugby, hockey and golf. His favourite teams were the Toronto Blue Jays, Toronto Maple Leafs, and the New York Giants. Locally, he was known from Sussex to Saint John as a great ballplayer, and considered his teammates as family.
In addition to his parents, Kyle is survived by his sister, Brittany; his “special little man” Simon; his grandparents: Tom & Shirley Burley, and Raymond & Sally Bernard; his uncles, Kevin Bernard (Heather) and children Miya & Colton; Gerry Burley (Michelle) and daughter Chantelle; his aunt, Sue Driscoll (Joey) and children MacKenzie & Shea. Kyle is also survived by several aunts, uncles, cousin and other loved family members.
