DAVID RUSSELL "POPPY" BERNARD, 80, PAINTSVILLE, KY (FORMERLY OF RUSSELL COUNTY)

 
David Russell “Poppy” Bernard, 80, of Paintsville, KY (formerly of Russell County), passed away on Monday, June 13, 2022 at Appalachian Regional Hospital of Paintsville. He was born on October 11, 1941 in Russell Springs, the son of the late Jesse and Crella Jane Wilson Bernard.  
 
David was an electrician for most of his working career. From 1981-1986 he served as Russell County Jailer. He and his family lived in Indiana for many years, where he was a volunteer firefighter. No matter where he lived, his heart was always in Russell County. David was the problem solver of the family; he was a “jack-of-all-trades” and could figure out how to do anything he put his mind to. In his younger years, he could’ve been a YouTube sensation. He was always involved in Little League when his kids played and enjoyed watching his grandchildren and great-grandchildren in their sporting activities. David loved watching Fox News. He has a great love of fishing, especially blue gill. Dale Hollow was his home away from home anytime he could go and when he had nothing to do, he would love to mow grass on his riding mower. David never met a stranger and loved to “pick” at people; his family might say if he wasn’t picking at you, he wasn’t happy.
 
Along with his parents, David was preceded in death by one son, Jesse Leslie Bernard; 5 brothers: Robert Bernard, Joseph Bernard, Jim Bernard, Charlie Bernard and Leonard Bernard; 4 sisters: Juanita Wells, Myrtie Edmonds, Henrietta Wright and Lela Jett; and a son-in-law, Phillip Blankenship.

His wife of over 64 years: Martha Ann Bernard
3 sons: Paul David Bernard (Sandra) of Mascoutah, Illinois, Michael Lewis Bernard (Theda) of Crestview, Florida and Jeffrey Lynn Bernard of Jamestown, KY
