United States Air Force Veteran Bernard “Bernie” White passed away May 16, 2021. It has been said that he had experienced complications after his Moderna vaccine and did not recover.
Bernie’s daughter Elizabeth White organized a gofundme fundraiser and states:
“For those of you who don’t know, my dad has been hospitalized since 3/2/2021. He has been diagnosed with bilateral pneumonia, acute kidney failure, bloods clots in his legs and arms, and a brain bleed. All of this was a sudden onset when he received the moderna vaccine on 2/24/2021. He is now at Riverside. Today 3/25/2021 they opened up his skull to do a craniotomy to relieve pressure and swelling on his brain.”
On May 19, 2021 the fundraiser page was updated with the announcing of his death.
“May 16, 2021 dad passed with his loved ones by his side. If you would like to donate towards funeral costs, the extensive medical bills we are left with, etc. thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”
Bernie’s obituary says that “Bernie is survived by his wife, Cuba (Williamson) White; daughter Elizabeth (Brayton Ross) of Coshocton; son Jarrod (Kristin) Williams of Clarksville, TN; step-sons Ron (Lori) Williamson and Jamie (Sarah) Williamson; grandchildren Braylee and Embrlynn Ross, Joseph and Jackson Williams, Veronica (Chaz) Pittman, Emily, Danielle, Mikayla, Nick, Maggie, and Nolan Williamson; siblings Becky (Bob) Robins, Joseph (Pearlie) Burr, Linda White, and Helen White; step brother Jerry White; and several nieces and nephews.”
The gofundme fundraiser has generated $3555.00 of the $5000.00 goal thus far. One of his co-workers, Terry McGuire donated and wrote:
“Bernie was a wonderful man, a great co-worker, and a friend. Prayers are with you and you family.“
Bernie appears to have been very loved, and will be deeply missed.
