"Mr Northbrook" Ron Bernardi Officiating Intimate Home Funeral Services
Posted on Monday, April 19, 2021

April 19, 2021 - Ron Bernardi, Northbrook's man about town and AmpliVox's friend has dedicated his life to giving back to the community.

Proud Rotarian for over 40+ years, Ron has been on the board of:

  • Northbrook Historical Society
  • Chamber Board
  • Civic Foundation
  • North Suburban YMCA

Ron radiates geniality, kindness and enthusiasm, all of which make him an excellent community liaison for the family-owned, community-centric company Sunset Foods.

When he’s not representing Sunset in the community, you can find him raising tens of thousands of dollars for local organizations as an auctioneer—a job he fell into and loves.

Everyone in Northbrook, IL knows and loves Ron Bernardi and wants Ron Bernardi at their event.

His love for God and his devotion to personal Bible study is where he gets his faith and strength, defining the man for who he truly is.

"Basically, I don’t say no. I feel that if God gives you a gift and you don’t use it, it is a sin" says Ron. "That is what we were designed for.

We are all wired differently and have different gifts and when we use them it is very fulfilling. It brings me happiness."

Due to the recent events of the Coronavirus pandemic, at home funerals have gained popularity. Caring for a loved one in the privacy of familiar surroundings, home funerals restore the intimacy of traditional grieving rituals.

A home funeral can create a special space around the deceased, where people can gather and spiritual practices can take place for everyone to engage in creative and meaningful ways.

Beloved friend to many, Brother Bernardi has been asked by the deceased's family to be the funeral celebrant and has officiated several home funerals as of late, leading their service, religious prayers and scripture readings.

AmpliVox Sound Systems has contributed by donating their new Capri Lectern to assist Ron with officiating a funeral, creating an atmosphere and a service that fits properly with the family of the deceased.
