Bernard J. Mandl, 78, died August 14, 2020 quietly in his sleep. He was with his wife Judy of 60 years, and two sons, at home in his beloved Mark Twain Forest. He is survived by his loving wife, four children, five grandchildren, and one great grandchild. He was known sweetly as “Papa.”

Bernie was born into the large family of Richard and Fern Mandl. Together they had 9 children and lived in a large home in Kansas City, Mo where many family memories were made among uncles, cousins, and aunts during the holiday seasons. Three of Bernie’s siblings are still alive: Lou, Mary, and Barbara. They hold the earliest of stories in this family home.

It has often been said that Bernie was liked by every person he met. He carried the soul of his early Catholic roots and together he and his wife were members of Queen of all Saints Catholic Church in Springfield, Mo where Bernie sang in the choir with a baritone voice.

Bernie could build nearly anything he set his mind on and in his lifetime built two homes. This talent set an example of dedication, perseverance and focus that along with hard work, bears fruitful in the end. He gave so much love and as a result, took much with him. We are deeply grieved in this announcement and honored to have had him for our father and earliest model. We are immensely grateful for our mother’s choice.

We would like to invite anyone who would like to attend the service in honor of our father and husband Friday, August 21, 2020 to Herman H. Lohmeyer Funeral Home, 500 E. Walnut St. Springfield, MO at 5-7 PM for visitation.

Saturday, August 22, 2020 services at 11:00 AM Queen of All Saints Catholic Church, in Springfield, MO. We will hold his last Mass, then drive to Resurrection Cemetery for his burial and blessing.

Come Holy Ghost, fill the hearts of Thy faithful and kindle in them fire of Thy love.
Send forth Thy spirit, and they shall be created.

And Thou shalt renew the face of the earth.

Let us pray. –O God, Who hast taught the hearts of the faithful by the light of the
Holy Ghost, grant that by the gift of the same Spirit we may be always truly wise and ever rejoice in His consolation. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Arrangements are under the care and direction of Herman H. Lohmeyer Funeral Home in Springfield, Missouri.

The Stearns in KS are so sorry for the loss of Bernie. He was a extremely dedicated hard working family man while working for SWBT all those years and also raising 4 kids, building houses, and also helped out in many other matters while also giving advice when asked. We express our deepest sympathy to Judy and the entire Mandl family. We offer our condolences thoughts and prayers at this time of loss. May God give him eternal rest and the family the strength to bear the great pain.

I have some thoughts to share about my Uncle Bernie. I have tried to organize them but they are coming so quickly. Uncle Bernie was different in many ways from my Mother Barbara and his other siblings. Born second from the last, Mary, he had the opportunity to experience and witness the lives and lessons of those brothers and sisters before him. A very religious, spiritual, reflective, caring, organized, creative and centered man was the Uncle Bernie I know. The room would always stir a little more and a little more vibrant when at Holiday and family gatherings it was learned that he had arrived. He had movie star looks, and a personality, that even though reserved, was magnetic. He had an ever present glint in his eyes, and a rye smile that when flashed, gave you an inner feeling that you had someway touched a part of him. I respect him for his willingness to stand behind beliefs that did not always run true to the norm and the willingness to express them. I have found strength in his example throughout my life. Thank you Uncle Bernie for your presents in my life. I hope one day, through the forgiveness, mercy and grace of Our Father, we will meet again.

Sorry to hear of your unexpected death. I remember the days in the kitchen when all the kids were there and Grandma and your Mother would put on a feast. I remember when you were in High School and you tried out for the Golden Gloves and won your division. Those were the Good Old Days. To bad we have grown old and move away. It's very sad to hear of your death and you will always be remembered. Your Cousin Bob Hevener. God Bless

Judy and Family,
I was so sorry to hear of Bernie's passing. He was such a very nice man. My thoughts go back to when we got out of school, drove over to Redemptorist to pick up Bernie and headed to NuWay to grab a hamburger and fries. He was always a gentleman who was madly in love with a beautiful girl. Sixty years ! God Bless You and Your Family. Your maid of honor, Kate
