"We  were very sorry to hear the news of Bernie’s passing  away.
We met Bernie about 13 years ago, whilst on holidays in Spain, with his lovely wife Carol.  We virtually spent the whole tour together, very pleasant company.
Later on, we had the opportunity to visit Portland, on the occasion of the birth of our grandson. Bernie was an excellent example of American hospitality. We spent quite a lot of  time with Bernie and Carol. An experience we will always cherish. Unfortunately Bernie never made it to Australia so we could reciprocate.
Bernie was a gentleman and fun to be with. Bernie Rest In Peace as you deserve it."

"I am so sorry to just receive this news of the passing of Bernie Kronberger. He was a long time friend more than in business. Bernie reached out to me when Juanita passed away and we had the opportunity to have a fellowship lunch not too far from my Portland home. One of the few times that we did not have to talk business. I told him that I was proud of his retirement. I promised him that I would be retiring myself sometime soon. Well soon, came December 15 and I was planning to have another lunch with my friend when I came back to Portland from holiday vacation. I was shocked to receive this news.I was glad to surprise him a earlier when he and his wife sat at my court side seats at the Blazer game while I was out of the country. I will miss my friend.  Roy@RoyJay.Com"

"I first met Bernie as sophomores in South Eugene HS's band playing in the trombone section. I found him to be very personable & outgoing.  We got along very we'll having similar interests and became friends from then on. We both attended the University of Oregon where we had different majors but we manage to take few classes together. We played a lot of tennis in high school & college. We attended many sporting events together at the UO. After college we went in different ways but got back together in Portland/Beaverton area. Recently we went to the Davis Cup tennis match between the US and Croatia. I always admired his initial contact with people. Very friendly & concerned about how things were going in your life. Bernie  was a great guy and will be missed. Carol, you had a wonderful man for a husband!"

"Bernie was the kindest, most considerate partner I've ever had in my position which I've held for 22 years.  He had an infectious smile and truly cared about people.  His passing is Oregon's greatest loss of 2016.
God Bless Him."

"Bernie made such a difference in our company and our community, he will never be forgotten.  I will not forget his help and friendship when we moved to Portland and I know he is looking down and making sure we keep our commitments to this community.
Miss you Bernie"

"To my big, beautiful, proud Austrian Prince. Thank you for choosing me. Life with you was never dull. You burned your candle at both ends and always gave your best.  You could call anyone by their first name and make people smile within a few minutes of meeting them. Thank you for loving and accepting my children & grandchildren as your own & for sharing your extraordinary life with me. Thank you for making me proud to be your wife, I will love & miss you forever."
