After high school graduation, he worked at Civilian Conservation Corp (CCC) Camp in Cresco until he was drafted into the United States Army serving in the South Pacific during WWII. Following an honorable discharge, Bert returned to Iowa and worked for Waterloo Valve Spring (Waterloo Industries). On May 7, 1949, he married Fay Morehouse in Waterloo. Together, they owned and operated Bert and Fay’s Jet Tavern until retiring in 1997. Bert enjoyed yardwork, gardening and garage sales. He traveled with his family through much of North America from Canada to Mexico. Bert really loved his Chicago Cubs and celebrated their World Series Win in 2016.
