Bernie was born on December 27, 1934 to Theodore and Annie (nee Koberinski) Koski at Sinnett, SK. He was the 5th of 10 children and grew up on a farm near Sinnett. He attended Manresa and Loyola Schools. Bernie married Maureen Dewan on October 13, 1962 at Spiritwood, SK. Bernie wore many hats throughout his life. When he met Maureen, he was a grain buyer in Spiritwood. After leaving that job, he repaired elevators for Searle Grain. Bernie and Maureen then moved to LeRoy where he worked as a carpenter's helper for Ben Bonney. Eventually he started working for Prairie Rose Custom Feeds as a mill operator. He was a loyal and dedicated employee for over 35 years. Never one to sit around, Bernie took a job at the local transition site in Watson. He called this job “My very important job!” Bernie just loved people. Before he passed away, he told his grandson, “Life is like a big joke. If you can't joke and laugh, then what's it all for?”
