Bernhardt Fredrick 'Bernie' Zerfas, died Wednesday, June 9, 2010, just short of his 94th birthday.
Born in 1916, in a house built by his Austrian immigrant grandparents in Ellis. He grew up milking cows in the morning before walking miles to a one-room school house. Bernie remembered well the Great Depression when times were so hard, his parents home burned down, and his father fell ill, and Bernie worked for neighbors cleaning barns and hauling manure for less than a dollar a day -- which he gave to his parents. Married his first and only steady girlfriend, MARTHA MEISNER. She died in 1984. In 1987, Bernie married IRENE KELLER. Irene survives him as does his sister, Irene Mounkes of Tecumseh, Kansas.
