Jim Bernardin, who worked extensively on the Corvair ad campaign in his work at Campbell-Ewald, Chevy's long time ad agency, died May 6th.  Just last year he wrote an article for the communique about his work on Corvair print ads.  Here's his memorial from the funeral home that handled arrangements:

You can still read his blog about his work for Chevy at:


His funeral, coincidentally, was held on the anniversary of the end of Corvair production.

And, on a more personal note, I didn't know until I read the memorial that he was a fellow native West Virginian.
