Bernard V. Coyle, Sr.

(Nov 18, 1928 to Oct 4, 2009)

Reds knew that mountains are not moved by words, but work, tireless and exacting work. In as much, he was fully dedicated to every job he set his mind to. Before moving to Florida, he worked for many years for PSE&G. He switched careers and became dispatcher for the Beverly Police Department. It would not be long till his dedication had been noticed and he was dispatching for the whole county. As a parent he rarely missed any of his kids games, and was often there to serve as coach or umpire. This may have given him the patience that he’d need when he later became a Juvenile Officer in Beverly. Always proud of his service to the US Air Force, it was very rare to see him without his Air Force ballcap. rnAlways light on his feet, with the ability to glide across a dance floor, it was only fitting that his first date with a young woman named Joan was at a roller skating rink. It wouldn’t be long until they were married and blessed by their children: Kathleen Mehrer (David), Bernard Jr., Dennis, Sr. and Mark (Karen), and their grandchildren: Kimberlee, Matthew, Veda, Kimberly, Dennis, Jr. and Stanley as well as their 3 great-grandchildren. He is the brother of Bernice, Elaine, Harriett, Harry and the late William, Joseph and James.rnCome celebrate 80 great years Saturday 11:30 AM at a graveside service at St. Peter’s Cemetery, Riverside. In lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made to Samaritan Hospice 5 Eves Dr., Marlton, NJ 08053rn

One thought on “Bernard V. Coyle, Sr.

  1. Timothy Horne

    Deepest sympathies from the Horne family to Mrs. Coyle and family. Mr. Coyle was a wonderful person who always had a smile on his face, and was always there to lend a helping hand. Whether you were his child or not, he always made the children around him feel special. There are a lot of wonderful memories that I have growing up in Beverly and being with the Coyle family. Whether playing baseball or basketball, going down the shore, Florida, swimming, or over your house, there were always kindness and love included. On behalf of my family, I would like to say our thoughts and prayers are with you. May God bless you always. Love, Tim, Kelley & Patrice Horne, and the rest of the Horne boys.
