John Bernadot

John William Bernadot, age 75, of Winona, passed away on Friday, October 30, 2020, at the Whitewater Health Services in St. Charles, MN.

He was born on March 1, 1945, in Winona, to Elmer and Martha (Braatz) Bernadot, and was a graduate of Winona Senior High School.

John was well known throughout the area for his love of music, and he saw his music as a way to make people happy and bring a smile to their face.  He especially enjoyed using his talent to help his community, whether it was a fundraiser for a good cause, or to bring joy and love to those in the local nursing homes.

He had a great love of the outdoors, where he enjoyed fishing, canoeing, and taking pictures.  John loved Winona, and frequented its many coffee shops, often several times a day.

John is lovingly survived by his children: Kim (Mike) Gallagher, Yale Bernadotte, Lori Hasman, Jason Hasman, Christopher (Samantha) Bernadot, Alisa (Jay) Hornberg, and Kaity( Matthew) Gray; grandchildren:  John, Sasha, Melissa, Gabi, Peyton, Katie, Grace, Esophia, Jami, and Branden; 3 great-grandchildren; as well as other relatives and many friends.  He was preceded in death by his dear wife, Joan Bernadot, daughter, Tara Bernadot, granddaughter, Katie Hornberg, his parents, and a brother, Robert Bernadot.
