Bernard Bornstein

Devoted son of the late Isadore and the late Dora Bornstein; cherished brother of the late Shirley Sussman and the late Harry, late Marvin, and late Jerry Bornstein. Bernard was there unconditionally, and was the rock for all who knew and loved him so dearly. Widely respected and admired by all who worked with and for him in the construction industry, self-made with more than 5 decades in business, his buildings will remain standing for years to come as a testament to his skill as a general contractor.
