In Memoriam: MRS Mourns the Loss of Longtime Employee Bernie Anton 

Irvington, NJ – It is with deep sadness that we announce the recent passing of our esteemed colleague, Bernie Anton, who dedicated most of his professional life to the building materials industry. Bernard, affectionately known as “Bernie,” was not just a co-worker but a dear friend, mentor, and an exceptional sales professional who left an indelible mark on the Building Materials Industry.

Bernie Anton served his country with honor in the military as a Staff Sergeant in the Marines, before embarking on a successful career in the Building Materials Industry. His unwavering commitment and dedication to Manufacturers Reserve Supply (MRS) were exemplified by his tireless work ethic, and it is with a heavy heart that we share the news of his passing.

Bernie’s passion for his work was evident until his very last day, as he continued to write up orders, showcasing the remarkable dedication that defined his tenure at MRS. His impact on our organization extends beyond his professional accomplishments; Bernie was an integral part of the MRS family, leaving an indelible legacy that will be cherished and remembered by all who had the privilege of working alongside him.  Bernie leaves behind his loving wife, Lorainne; 3 children, David, Stephen and Bernard and 8 grandchildren.

Our condolences go out to the Anton family during this difficult time. Bernie’s passing leaves a void in our hearts, and we join together as a company to mourn the loss of a true friend and valued team member. We will miss him dearly. Details regarding any memorial services or arrangements are private at the family’s request.
