    In Memory of
    John Edward Berry
    May 8, 1918 - April 6, 2018
    John Edward Berry passed away on April 6, 2018 in his home in Ogden, Utah in the presence of his family.

    John was born on May 8, 1918 in Preston, OK. During WWII, he joined the Army Air Corps where he had his career as a pilot and an Intelligence Officer until his retirement from the Air Force in 1964 with the rank of Major. John attended both the University of Arkansas and the University of Texas during his military career, receiving a degree in Economics and Business. John was a Veteran of three wars: WWII, Korea and Vietnam.

    During his deployment to the Far East, John met and married Betty Sue Liao in 1959, and they had two sons, Edward and Marvin.

    After retirement, John and is his family moved to Warsaw, MO where he personally built his retirement home overlooking the Lake of the Ozarks. John was active in his son's lives by being a Boy Scoutmaster for Warsaw Troop 34 where the scouts were frequently involved in canoeing and camping, winning many district canoe races. He also took the troop on a high adventure tour of the west, camping at the Air Force Academy, hiking the highest peak in Colorado, visiting the Great Sand Dunes, Mesa Verde and Grand Canyon National Parks, taking the boys to the bottom of the canyon. John also enjoyed taking his family on long summer vacations eventually visiting all 50 states.

    John had a great interest in HAM Radio and his call sign was KBOHJ. Until the last few years, he was active in the Air Force Military Auxiliary Radio System and he had also made radio contact with over 140 countries throughout the world. Another hobby was Archaeology, where he volunteered at several scientific native excavation sites.

    John is survived by his wife, Betty; sons, Edward Berry M.D. and wife, Julie Lin Berry M.D., of Ogden, Marvin Berry and wife, Rose of Ogden and granddaughters, Danielle Berry of Eugene, OR and Katherine Berry of Portland, OR.
