Bernard “Bernie” Duaine Eas­ton, 80, of Wal­dorf, MD, died peace­fully on Wed­nes­day, De­cem­ber 7, 2016.

Bernie was born in Wil­ton, North Dakota, on March 27, 1936. He en­listed in the U.S. Navy in 1954 and was hon­or­ably dis­charged in 1958. While in the Navy, he served on two de­stroyer class ships (Border­lon and Ir win) and was dis­charged from the Ex­plo­sive Ord­nance Dis­posal School in In­dian Head, MD. He worked in the ad­min­is­tra­tive of­fices at those ac­tiv­i­ties. With the G.I. ben­e­fits and part-time work, Bernie grad­u­ated from Bis­marck Ju­nior Col­lege in 1960 and went on to Minot State Col­lege earn­ing a de­gree in busi­ness ad­min­is­tra­tion in 1963.

Bernie was a mem­ber of the Amer­i­can Le­gion and Wal­dorf Lions Club. He was a mem­ber of the Lions Club for over 20 years where he was Lion Rookie of the Year, Lion of the Year, and a Melvin Jones Fel­low­ship Award re­cip­i­ent. His ma­jor fo­cus with the Lions Club was col­lect­ing used eye­glasses from the com­mu­nity for re­cy­cling and use by those in need. With great com­mu­nity sup­port, thou­sands of eye­glasses were col­lected for the project.

Bernie worked for the U.S. Gen­eral Ac­count­ing Of­fice, Wash­ing­ton, DC, from 1963 un­til his re­tire­ment as an As­sis­tant Di­rec­tor in 1993. He per­formed au­dits on De­part- ment of De­fense pro­grams — nu­clear de­fense and ma­jor weapon sys­tem ac­qui­si­tions. He re­ceived many awards, in­clud­ing the agency Mer­i­to­ri­ous Ser­vice Award.

Bernie met his fu­ture wife in the sum­mer of 1963 when she was home from col­lege in Ar­ling­ton, Vir­ginia. In June 1966, he mar­ried Jane Dougherty in Ar­ling­ton. In 1969, they moved into their new home in Wal­dorf, MD, where he lived with Jane un­til pass­ing.

He en­joyed spend­ing time with his beloved wife Jane, their Scot­tish Ter­rier dogs, and friends and fam­ily. Spend­ing time at the Ocean City condo was al­ways a spe­cial event along with be­ing a die-hard Wash­ing­ton Red­skins foot­ball and Mary­land Ter­rapin bas­ket­ball fan. He had sea­son tick­ets to Terps bas­ket­ball for 40 some years. Go­ing out to the lo­cal crab houses for steamed crabs and a bev­er­age was al­ways a fa­vorite pas­time. His Scot­tish ter­rier, Dakota, was his con­stant side-kick and com­pan­ion dur­ing re­tire­ment years.
