Celebration of Life - Bernardo Perez

Bernardo Benny Perez passed away May 9, 2019

He had been very ill lately and a heart attack finally took him. Bernardo Perez was a great dancer and active in country and West Coast Swing events. He enjoyed two special events. The Sweetheart Jamboree where he would be first in line to get a good table for the Saturday night dinner show. He also enjoyed the Seattle Easter Swing. He loved watching the pros and volunteering in the grand ballroom. Bernardo is survived by 6 children, 23 grandchildren, and 4 great grandchildren. He loved them all.

Dave Serfling: I remember every dance event I went to there was Bernardo’s smiling face. “Hey Vato” he would say to me and share that laugh of his. He was a great guy. I even saw him at restaurants with his family a number of times The Old Spaghetti Factory, Huckleberry Square etc.. We ran into each other many times.

Bernardo is definitely missed by a huge number of people: Lenda, his family, his friends and the whole dance community!

Dave Serfling’s Dance Cruise 2010

Passed away April 3, 2019

Myrtle Joyce Pentheny was born February 16, 1931 at the age of 88.

Myrt was a very special person and at times a second mom for me. She was in my Line Dance classes for 25+ years in Kirkland, Bellevue and at the Rockin’ Horse Dance Barn.

She loved to dance and cruise. When it was too difficult to drive her daughter Debbie would bring her and they both line danced for a while.
