It is with deep sadness that we learned of the passing of UA Local 682 Member Bernie Marsh.
Bernard 'Bernie' Charles Marsh

Bernard Charles Marsh, 44, passed on Tuesday, Sept. 30, 2014 at his home in Regina, Sask. Born May 15, 1970 in New Waterford, Bernie was the son of Dorothy ‘Dot' MacKinnon and the late Bernie Marsh.
