Bernie was a self-driven businessman who worked hard to obtain the reputation as one of the best hardwood floor installers of the North Country, Fabulous Hardwood Floors.

Bernie was clever, creative and an expert craftsman. He enjoyed designing new inventions, his most popular were the Aqua Joust and the Go-Zebo. He was also an avid boater and fisherman.

Bernie had a photographic memory and a great interest in learning little-known historical facts. He could recall song and movie lines easily and loved trivia. He liked attending Irish festivals and enjoyed singing karaoke, country music, cartoon commercials and Irish ballads. Bernie also loved debating on a multitude of topics and was not shy about voicing an opinion on them.

He is survived by the love of his life, Mary Curtis; siblings Kelly (Lukaszewicz) Smith, Timothy Lukaszewicz, Kathleen (Lukaszewicz) Prossick, Michael Lukaszewicz and Bridget (Lukaszewicz) Allister; and several aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.
