Obituary

Michael Bermes passed away peacefully on March 19, 2021 at the age of 71.

Beloved husband to Linda C. Bermes (née Wojciak) for 35 years, he was the loving father to Kelly Ann Waldron (James Koch), Eric Bermes (Patty), Pamela Hueber (Daniel), Jill DiSanto, and Jennifer DiSanto; grandfather to Audrey, Amber, Alec, Daniel, Gabby, Ryan, Michael, Jamie, and Kimber; great-grandfather to Riley, Raelynn, and Roman. Also left to cherish Michael's memory are his siblings Olga Gadomski, Peter Bermes, and Mary Glunt.

He was born in Varel, Germany to Jan Bermes and Zina Pintozzi (nee Trifan.) He was preceded in death by his parents, his brother Victor Bermes, and his stepfather, Andrew Pintozzi, Jr.

A highly respected truck driver and a retired member of the Teamsters Local 470 in Philadelphia, he was a car enthusiast with a passion for negotiating. He loved traveling with his family and taking long drives--whether to Vineland for ice cream or to Atlantic City for a good steak at Gordon Ramsay. Michael was an exceptional conversationalist who always enjoyed meeting new people and sharing his words of wisdom. The originator of random acts of kindness, he had a genuine appreciation for seeing someone smile.

A decorated wartime veteran, Michael served in the United States Army's 18th Military Police Brigade, Vietnam. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Michael's name to a veterans charity of your choice.

Relatives and friends are invited to remember his legacy on Thursday, March 25. Visitation is from 10:30 AM-12:30 PM at the Swartz-Givnish Life Celebration Home, 323 E. Washington Ave., Newtown, PA 18940. Interment to follow at Washington Crossing National Cemetery in Newtown, PA at 2:00 PM.
