Bernard (Bernie) J. Nealon passed away peacefully with his loving wife Barbara by his side on May 14, 2019 after a long and courageous battle with Alzheimer’s Disease.

Bernie was born in Lowell MA to Leo and Hazel Nealon and grew up on the family farm in Dracut, MA. He was married to his beloved wife, Barbara (Boumila), for 54 years. Together they raised two sons while committed to their individual professions, enjoying their lives as a small family of four.

In 1962, Bernie graduated from Dracut High School, Dracut, MA. In 1964 Bernie began building their home in Dracut, MA which he and his wife Barbara would spend together for the next 35 years. In 1990 Bernie built their second home on Lake Wicwas in Meredith, NH, where they spent 21 years vacationing and entertaining family and friends enjoying all the seasons the Lakes Region has to offer.

Bernie was an active member in Carpenters Local Union #49 in Lowell MA for 25 Years. During this time, he also started a business raising Pheasants on family property in Dracut, MA. Doing business as B & B Pheasantry Game Bird Ranch, Bernie became a reliable resource for Boston restaurants and hotels to elegantly serve pheasants to their customers.

After 10 years working with Raytheon Company in Facilities Management, Bernie changed careers and became a Certified Nursing Assistant. For seven year he shared time employed with private clients, as well as supporting several Nursing Homes in the greater Meredith area.

Bernie was a member of the Meredith Rotary, as well as a volunteer at Lakes Region General Hospital and the Meals on Wheels Program in Meredith, NH. Over the years Bernie took great pleasure in riding his Harley Davidson Motorcycle especially during Motorcycle Week, Treasure Hunting in NH and ME beaches with his metal detector, and at home strumming his Banjo.

Thinking of you both often,
