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!
