Bernard Arthur Herringshaw, known affectionately as Bernie to his friends and family, passed away on March 11, 2024, at the age of 84 in Easley, SC. Born on January 26, 1940, in Salisbury, NY, Bernie lived a full life characterized by his loving nature, gentle spirit, and a sense of humor that brought smiles to all who knew him.

Bernie was a devoted husband to his wife, Joann, with whom he shared a beautiful life filled with love and laughter.

Throughout his life, he took pride in his various careers, beginning as a truck driver, then honing his skills as a machinist, and eventually applying his artistic touch to paint and body work. His love for precision and excellence was also evident in the meticulous care he took while riding his zero-turn mower, an activity he greatly enjoyed.

A man of many interests, Bernie's passions included hunting, immersing himself in old movies on TV, and reveling in the melodies of old music. His love for music extended to playing the guitar, a hobby that brought him great joy and provided countless hours of entertainment for his family and friends.

His funny anecdotes and gentle demeanor were hallmarks of his personality, making him a beloved figure in the lives of many. His ability to light up a room with his presence and to offer comfort with a simple smile was a gift to all who had the pleasure of crossing his path.

His influence will be felt for generations to come, as he instilled in his children and grandchildren the values of kindness, humor, and love. Bernie's memory will be cherished and kept alive in the stories told and retold by those who loved him.
