In Memory

    Bernard L. “Bernie” Padgett
    Founder, Werner-Herbison-Padgett (WHP)
    August 26, 1926 – July 21, 2013

    Those of us who knew Bernie Padgett hold many memories. His incredible hospitality, unshakable integrity, brilliant mind. Bernie was an innovator who had the foresight and wisdom to see a problem and come up with a workable solution.  Even more, we will remember his kindness and his great smile. Bernie was one of those people you just liked to be around. He could be counted on for sound advice, for truly caring about every person he met and for a dazzling smile. We extend our sympathy   to his family and long-time friends and count ourselves blessed to have enjoyed both a healthy business relationship and solid friendship with Bernie. A trustworthy mentor and some big footsteps to follow….
