Bernie departed this world on March 6, 2014 from cardiac and pulmonary arrest. He suffered several years from congestive heart failure. He is survived by his sweetheart Marcella, his ex-wife Gloria and his four children Ava, Bernie, William and Christian. He is also survived by 10 grandchildren and his brother George W. Archuleta.
It is difficult to put into words the depth of our loss of Bernie. He had many friends and loved ones who cared deeply about him. His personality was lighthearted and full of humor and smiles. He didn't let things get him down and he always looked to God for solutions and peace in his life. He was a good listener and resisted the urge to judge others. His heart was about love and forgiveness and he passed these traits to his children. He had the ability to make friends easily, was comfortable talking to strangers and making them laugh. He loved his children and grandchildren immensely as well as his extended family and friends at the senior center.
