Obituary of Heinz G. Bernecker

Heinz Gunther Bernecker, 71, of Delhi, passed away on Saturday, March 9, 2024 at Westchester Medical Center.

Born January 8, 1953 in Landshut, Germany, Heinz was the son of the late Gunther and Theresia (Graf) Bernecker.   

 Heinz was a strong self-made man, he owned and operated Bovina Motor Works, in Bovina NY where he enjoyed repairing vehicles. When he wasn’t in the shop, he was enthusiastic about weightlifting and shared his passion with his niece, nephews, and their friends.  Heinz then operated a landscaping business where he loved to visit with his clients and grew many cherished friendships. 

Heinz is survived by his wife Holly; Holly’s children: Pat Noonan and family and Carlye Deysenroth and family;  Heinz’s children: Angel Morgan and family and Michel Bernecker and family;  his siblings: Christa(Charlie) Schafer, Susie (Russ Rowlands) Pickens, Ralf (Tim Wentworth) Bernecker and Elsa (Ron) Schmitz;  his nephews: John Schafer, Michael Schafer, Brian Schmitz and Mike Ressel; along with his nieces: Nicole Evans, Raisa Johnson and Cassidy Pickens and their families; and Dave VanValkenburg who was like a son to Heinz. 

They say don’t cry for me but remember me with love and smiles as life on earth is never counted by the breaths we take but the love and goodness we share. Heinz is free now, mowing a path in heaven. 

In lieu of flowers we ask you to take a moment to remember what life is all about and share a kind word with one another.
