CLAYTON, NY — Arthur (Gib) Bernard, 76, formerly of Webb Street in Clayton, died May 27 at Summit Village in Watertown, where he resided for over two years.
Born Oct. 11, 1942, in Watertown, the son of Gibson and Rosemary
Doyle Bernard, he graduated from Indian River High School and from Potsdam
College in 1965 with a teaching degree.
He retired from Averill Park School District in Rensselaer County. For a short time, he taught 9th grade History at Watertown High School.
Even though Gib has no family, he has many friends that were like family to him.
Everybody was drawn to Gib by his good nature, and endearing personality. People felt comfortable just being around him. Being very social, he acquired many friends.
Gib loved the St. Lawrence River, the Brooklyn Dodgers Baseball team, and he loved being a beer connoisseur.
His friends (relatives) will have a private memorial gathering on the St. Lawrence
River which he loved so much.
Arrangements are with the T.R. Jetty Funeral Home in Clayton.
