He along with his wife Marilyn were founders of their family business, Kamp Airport, in the 1970s. They were both licensed pilots. Their business was quite remarkable and drew the attention of Dunn and Bradstreet, who interviewed them on how they created a full-service airport including maintenance and complete support systems from the ground up.

Bernie was a veteran of WWII, having served in the Navy aboard the aircraft carrier FDR during its commission. He continued his service to his community as a commissioned official for the civic air patrol. Bernie also enjoyed being a ham radio operator. His family will remember his strength, his kind and loving character, and his innate ability to fix or solve any problem. Bernie was predeceased by his daughter, Phyllissa, in 2003.
Survived by his wife of 57 years, Marilyn; his daughters, Susan Golden, Marsha (Steve) Rothenberg and Bonnie Kamp; his brother, Donald Kamp; his sister, Revelyn Eisenstadt; his loving grandchildren, Rachel, Delilah, Tiffany and Tanner.
