Dean B. Berry was born in Altoona, Pennsylvania, January 17, 1932, a son of the late
James T. and Jessie A. (Books) Berry. He was a 1950 graduate from Altoona Senior High
School and retired from BAE in York. He served in the US Navy from 1951-1955 aboard
the USS Franklin D. Roosevelt, flag carrier for the Navy’s Sixth Fleet.
Dean was an avid Penn State fan, never missing a televised game or a score. He found
joy sitting in the shade of his maple tree, with his cat Tommy, smiling and waving to his
wonderful neighbors as they drove by the house.
Mr. Berry is survived by: his son Mark Berry, and his wife, Susan; Tim Berry, and his
wife, Tammy; daughter Lisa Peck, and her husband, John; his daughter-in-law Sybil
(Thomas) Berry, widow of Todd; six grandchildren; one great granddaughter; and one
step son, Fred Smith, and his wife Deb, and family.
He was preceded in death by eight brothers, including his twin brother Gene, and one
sister; his son, Todd Berry; and the mother of his children, Lynne (Stewart) Berry; two
step sons and their mother, Nancy Keller Smith Berry.
A graveside service will be held at Indiantown Gap National Cemetery. Workinger
