Bert at Wildbill's passed away....

I pray that Bert's soul will rest in peace in God's Kingdom of Heaven. I also pray that the grieving of Bert's family and friends will be short and replaced by fond memories of Bert.

it's rolling around the bend"

 

Memory's from Wild Bills go back 20 years and Burt was a part of virtually all of them.  Too many great memory's to remember but blessed and grateful to able to  call Bert a friend.  My thoughts and prayers go out to Burt's family especially Burt's Mom who came up to Wild Bills regularly to hang out at the store.   Thank you Bert for your great hart and all your help.

Have to find the photo of the 2 of us at York about 15 or years ago. I gave him, his brother Marty and Vic a case of Yuengling beer in their van to take back to Michigan as that was not available up there.

Ted,

That began a tradition.  Most vehicles returning from York now carry Yuengling back to the Great Lake State.  We often have some Yuengs at our D3R gatherings.  So many memories come to mind when thinking about Bert, Elmer and Wild Bill's Trains.  Bert was often at the center of everything we were doing in O Gauge Trains.  I'm definitely missing my friend.

Charlie,

When I heard the news about Bert, my 1st phone call was to Richard Maddox who always visited Wild Bill's when he had to get away from Lionel for an hour or so. He always enjoyed going to Wild Bill's, seeing Elmer, Bert and the gang there. He was saddened when he heard the news. 

I am going to miss my Michigan buddy as well.

Yuengling is now available in the indianapolis, Indiana area and Columbus, Ohio area so no need to go all the way to Pennsylvania now for a few cases. Yuengling is available in most of the eastern states and some midwestern states these days:
