In reply to: Charlie Harvell 's message, "Frenchy Benard dead at 77." on 13:46:22 09/21/13 Sat


Frenchy Bernard, 77, of Ellerbe, passed away Monday, September 16, 2013 at his home.

Frenchy was born June 20, 1936 in Quebec, Canada, a son of the late Joseph and Stephanie Goulet Bernard. In the early 70’s, Frenchy left Canada and moved to Louisiana where he entered into his career in professional wrestling. Eventually he moved into wrestling management and later was a professional referee. He spent his life traveling through Europe, Japan, Australia, Kuwait, Africa, Saudi Arabia, Mexico and all across the United States. In 1980 he settled in North Carolina at the AFJ Ranch in Ellerbe with Andre the Giant and continued in wrestling as a promoter until his retirement in 1994.

Surviving are his wife, Lady Bernard of the home; daughter, Jennifer Six of Cordova; stepchildren, Cory Wilson and Felecia Wilson (Nick Raines), all of Ellerbe; grandson, A.J. Wilson; brothers, Roland and Mayo Bernard of New Brunswick, Canada; and a sister, Teraz Bernard of New Brunswick, Canada.

A celebration of Frenchy’s life will be held at 4 pm Thursday at the AFJ Ranch, 151 AFJ Ranch Rd, Ellerbe, with Rev. Donnie Davis officiating. Casual attire is requested.

The family will greet friends following the service and at other times at the home.

Memorials may be made to Community Home Care and Hospice, 1971 E. Broad Ave., Rockingham, NC 28379.
