      PRESTON — Henry H. Bernhardt, 70, well-known lifelong resident of Preston, died suddenly at his home, 305 Hamilton St., Preston, early Friday morning. Mr. Bernhardt had been ailing for a year and seriously ill for a week. A moulder by occupation he was employed with Clare Bros., in that capacity for some 40 years and for a short time with Shantz Foundry. He retired from moulding in 1948. An active member of St. Peter's Lutheran Church, Mr. Bernhardt was a member of the church board and secretary-treasurer of the Sunday school. He was financial secretary of the Preston Independent Order of Foresters. A member of the Moulder's Union, he was secretary-treasurer of that organization until a short time after his retirement in 1948. As a hobby he was a member of the Preston crokinole club. He was married in Preston in 1908. His wife, the former Rose Marie Wehrle, survives with four daughters, Mrs. H. (Edna) Braun of Preston, Mrs. C. (Ruth) Dale of Galt, Mrs. S. (Isobel) Debrusk of Preston, Mrs. N. (Rose) Wood of Galt; three sons, Harold, Irvin and Lewis of Preston; two brothers, George of Galt and Jake of Toronto and a sister, Mrs. H. Davis of Madison, N.J. Twelve grandchildren and an aunt, Mrs. George Haller of Preston, also survive.
