Lowell Collins Bernard passed from life, Monday March 14, 2005. He was surrounded by loving family, in the comfort of his home. Lowell's 80 years have been marked by remarkable accomplishments.
In 1948, while still a student at the University of Nevada, Reno, Lowell began working part time for the accounting firm of Kafoury and Armstrong Company. He became partner in 1959, the same year he earned his CPA certificate.
Later, as a managing partner, he oversaw the organization's growth into a statewide firm. During his 54 years in accounting, he has served as president of the Nevada Society of CPA's and Nevada State Board of Accountancy.
He was also a member of the American Institute of CPA's and served as a delegate to that body. He served as past chairman of the Governor's Study Committee on Education in Nevada, member of the Public Finance Blue Ribbon Task Force Committee, Chair, and member of numerous boards of directors.
In 1978, Lowell received the coveted Mountain States Conference "Outstanding Service Award" for dedication and commitment to the community, state and profession. In recognition of Lowell's significant achievements contributing to the advancement of our state and nation and for exceptional service, Lowell was awarded the Distinguished Nevadan Award in 1995.

He graduated from Carson High School, attended Stanford University, University of Washington, Naval Reserve Officers' Training, Williamette University and graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno.
For generations to come, University of Nevada, Reno, medical students, nursing students and this country's elderly can thank L. C. Bernard for being the instrumental force in securing one of the largest gifts for the University of Nevada, Reno and in the history of the entire state. This tremendous gift will be used for many lifetimes to support the research and teaching of improving the quality of life for the elderly. From this generous gift from the Graham and Jean Sanford estate, The Sanford Center for Aging has been created to enrich the lives of the elderly. The University of Nevada, Reno honored him with the Alumnus of the Year Award in 1994.
