Obituary for James Fredrick Berry, Jr.

James Fredrick Berry, Jr., 63, of Terre Haute passed away Thursday afternoon, May 2, 2019 at Terre Haute Regional Hospital. He was born June 16, 1955 in Charleston, IL to James Fredrick Berry and Helen Crum Berry.

Survivors include his three children, Josh (Vanessa) Crosley, Cassandra Crosley, Anna (Justin) Moore; four grandchildren, Maddox Crosley, Samantha Moore, Aubrie Moore and Lillian Moore; a sister Carolyn Seeber, a brother John (Rebecca) Berry; and several nieces and nephews. James was preceded in death by both of his parents, and a nephew.

James was a graduate of Montezuma High School, and Lake Land College. He also served in the U.S. Army. He was a member of St. Benedict Catholic Church. He was a philosopher, as well as a theologian. The written word was his favorite hobby, with a love of science fiction. James was the household Champion of Trivial Pursuit, as well as a sore loser of Risk. His smile was contagious, and his laugh a balm for the soul.

For those who wish, the Family suggest that memorials be made to the National Cancer Association.

A Memorial Mass will be conducted at 6:00 PM, Thursday, May 9, 2019 in St. Benedict Church, 111 South 9th Street, with Father Fred Pasche, OFM Conv. officiating.
