OBITUARY Print

Beverly Bryant Berry, beloved husband to Kathy Kindt Berry, passed away peacefully at home in his favourite chair on April 5, 2021.

 

Besides his loving spouse of 55 years, he is survived by his mom, Newana Berry, his Girls, Kari (Bill), and Karen (Steve).

His grandchildren Carter (Jackie), Colton (Alyssa), Sydni, Harlee, Riley, Brantly, Ashton and Dawson (Courtney).

His great grandchildren Alexis, Brayden, Charlee, and Andie Beverly (his name sake).

His sisters Charlene (Dave) McLachlan, Diana (Brock) Bevans, and Sheron (Paul) Doig.

As well as numerous nieces and nephews, aunts and uncles, and all his friends who became family.

Bryant was predeceased by his father, Mark Berry, his infant daughter Tammy, sister Debra Kartchner, and his son in law Donald M Steed.

Bryant was born in Cardston, AB to his parents Mark and Newana Berry. He grew up on the family farm south of Cardston. He was the only boy with 4 sisters, which seemed fitting as he was surrounded by women his whole life. He attended high school in Cardston and went to SAIT to become a red seal master mechanic. He married Kathy Kindt in 1966 and they moved to Raymond in 1970. He worked at Raymond Motors, HiWay 52 Feeders, and then opened his own business Berry’s Service. When he retired, he had to stay busy so he started working at Auto and AG up until the day he passed.

Bryant also served the church of Latter-day Saints as an usher for many many years. Members will alway remember his quick wit, infectious smile, firm handshake and warm embrace as they entered the chapel. He made everyone feel special and took the time to include the children and teach them a proper handshake. Just this pass year he was able to receive his endowment and go through the temple.

In his pastime, he loved keeping the yard on his and Kathy’s acreage, starting plants in the green house, and planting the garden with Kathy (he was not allowed to help weed). Anyone who came out the the farm would be given a tour of the garden as well as the greenhouse and he gladly shared the bounty of their crops with anyone who needed it. During the summer, Bryant enjoyed camping, boating and gopher hunting with family. He loved his son-in-laws past and present. He spent much of his time fishing with them and having them help with various odd jobs around the farm.

His love of his community showed in the service he did for others, he was always the first to get the driveway cleared for a neighbour or rototill a garden spot. Never did he turn down an opportunity to serve others.

As a family we would like to acknowledge the team of professionals involved in keeping Bryant with us this long:

Dr. Wally Tollestrup, he was so much more to Dad than just his physician, and we are so grateful for the care and attention (and patience) he gave Dad.

The staff and physicians of the Raymond Clinic for being so accommodating, kind and caring with him.  

The Raymond Hospital for the great care and professionalism on his stays there and his visits to the lab.

Lastly, to the Raymond ER Nurses and Dr. R. Steed, a heartfelt thanks for making Dad’s final visit to ER as good as possible, preserving dignity in the end for a passing well deserved.

The care and grace extended to a grieving family was above and beyond we are touched and so grateful.

Due to COVID restrictions, there will be a private graveside service. The family will be having a drive-by reception for those wishing to pay their respects. It will be held Monday April 12, 2021 at 5:00pm at the acreage across from Victoria Sports Park, please enter by the hospital then loop around on the Ag barn road (please ensure one way traffic). The family will be out on the boulevard to greet you.
