In Memory of Robert Bernier

Robert P. Bernier
November 13, 1943 to February 16, 1997

Millinocket, Maine

    Robert P. Bernier died unexpectantly February 16, 1997 as the result of a snowmobile accident near Baxter State Park. Bob was a strong supporter of the snowmobiling program in the Katahdin Region and displayed that support through his position as a Millinocket Town Councilor.

    Bob was an avid snowmobiler, often enjoying the wintery outdoors on his snowmobile with his two sons, Mike and Adam. Bob would often stop on the trail to speak to people and always had a friendly smile as he spoke to them about the area. He was proud of Millinocket and proud of what the area had to offer. It was not unusual to find Bob in the most remote areas around Mt. Katahdin on his snowmobile, exploring the undisturbed snow not yet traveled by fellow snowmobile enthusiasts.

     Bob was born in Millinocket, Maine on November 13, 1943, the son of Rene and Lucille Bernier. He was a graduate of Stearns High School, Class of 1964 and was employed at Great Northern Paper Company as a maintenance planner. He was past president of the Carpenters and Jointers Union Local No 658; was a member of B.P.O.E. No. 1521 of Millinocket; and a member of the Millinocket Town Council for the past 12 years. He served as a coordinator for the Elks and Cub Scout Packs No. 66 for many years. Surviving are his mother of Millinocket; his wife Margot Bernier of Millinocket; two sons, Adam of Boston, Massachusetts and Michael of Millinocket; five brothers, Rene, Carlton, Roxie, and Richard, all of Millinocket, and Rodney of Medway; three sisters Sheila Duplisea and Brenda McLain of Millinocket and Sandra Bernier of Old Orchard; and many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins.
