Obituary

Bernie Hallock


Bernie (Bernard) Earl Hallock of Rocky Mountain House, Alberta came to the end of his trail surrounded by his family and friends on February 28, 2020 at the age of 71.
Bernie was born in Rocky Mountain House October 22, 1948 to Vergil and Donna Hallock. He lived in the Caroline/Rocky area his whole life.
Bernie began his career as a big game guide at 14 years of age, working for Dewey Browning. Bernie was a Class "A" guide and had the privilege of helping hunters bring down several record sized Bighorn Rams and Elk. He was a pioneer in the outfitting industry in west central Alberta. Many current outfitters, guides and hunters benefitted from his knowledge and advice. Bernie loved to make people smile, he was known for his quick wit and endless humour as well as the exciting adventures in the mountains.
He was good with his hands, and it seemed there was nothing he couldn't do; from carpentry, to plumbing, welding and wagon building. He was an accomplished horseman and teamster. He also had a lengthy career on oil and gas rigs all over Western Canada. In his later years Bernie took great pleasure in operating and managing campgrounds in the West Country. During retirement he enjoyed leatherworking, carving antlers into lash-hooks and buckles, raising horses and watching the wildlife from his front porch. He was especially proud of his herd of wild whitetail deer that would follow him around like pets. Bernie was always quick to help anyone, from friends and family to strangers.

Bernie is predeceased by his parents, his sister Verna and brother Wayne.
He leaves behind his beloved wife of 32 years Jolene, children: Brian, Michael, Keri, Terra, Ricki and Mark, his brothers: Bruce, Roland and Alan as well as 11 grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews. Bernie will be greatly missed.

A Celebration of Bernie’s life will be held at a later date.
