Bert died July 9, 2000, in Philadelphia, home for most of his life. Retired for nearly 25 years, he had a career in insurance and retailing.
Coming to Princeton from St. George's School, Bert majored in psychology and was a member of Cottage Club. After WWII, having served in the army, he returned to Philadelphia to join the family insurance business, W. C. O'Neill Sons. Selling his partnership interest some 20 years later, he worked for a number of years as v.p. of Aluminum Biclimatic Corp., specializing in aluminum buildings and components. He also owned a retail store, known as La Boutique.
Bert served on the boards of both the Historical and Genealogical Societies of Pennsylvania and the advisory boards of the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and the US Court Tennis Assn.
To his widow, Jane, his son, Bert Jr., and his grandson, Bert III, the class extends sincere sympathies.
