In loving memory of Bernard Vannoy, Sr., aged 85, who peacefully passed away at Chester County Hospital on Thursday, September 28, 2023. He was the devoted husband of the late Dorothy M. Vannoy, sharing 51 beautiful years of marriage together.
Bernard started his journey in West Virginia, where he attended school before embracing a fulfilling career in maintenance for Lewis and DiBartolomeo, a prominent mushroom growing and distribution company.
One of Bernard’s greatest joys in life was spending quality time with his beloved family, especially his cherished grandchildren. He found solace in the simple pleasure of sitting outside, surrounded by nature’s beauty, while passionately cheering on the Philadelphia Phillies, his favorite baseball team.
Left to honor his memory are his four children: Bernard Vannoy Jr. of Nottingham, William Vannoy of Ft Myers, Florida, Park Vannoy of West Chester, and Diane Vannoy of Nottingham. Additionally, he leaves behind eight grandchildren, four great-grandchildren, and two siblings, Harry Vannoy and Bertha Roberts, both residing in Cleveland, Ohio. Bernard was preceded in death by his eleven siblings.
