Earl "Bud" Berry Obituary

     Earl E. “Bud” Berry,97, of Williamsport, passed away on Sunday, February 25, 2024 at the Gatehouse of Divine Providence Hospital. Surviving is his loving and devoted wife of 57 years, Isabella F. (Oliveira) Berry.

     Born January 12, 1927, in Williamsport, he was a son of the late Oscar E. and Beatrice E. (Williamson) Berry.

     Bud graduated from the Williamsport High School. His strong sense of duty led him to serve in the United States Navy for 26 years, where he proudly defended his country during World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. His dedication to service was a hallmark of his character, one that earned him the respect and admiration of all who knew him.

     After his distinguished military career, Bud became the owner of Bud's Mower Service, a business that not only served the community but also reflected his love for tinkering and repair. After retirement Bud worked for his sons at Berry's Greenhouse, where his presence became a beloved constant.

     Bud's life was not only defined by his service and work but also by his passion for the outdoors. He enjoyed hunting and fishing.

     Surviving in addition to his wife are three sons, James "Jim" Berry of Cogan Station, Keith Berry, and Paul Berry, both of Williamsport; five grandchildren, Chris Berry (Jennifer), Lynn Berry, Jason Berry (Jill), Jeremy Crissman (Sara), and Jen Romano (Joe), as well as his nine great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren; and two daughters-in-law, Carol Berry and Jacalyn Berry.

     In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a son Clifton Berry, his sister, Doris Coffey, and his former wife, Margaret "Ellen" (Smith) Berry.

     A graveside service to honor the life of Bud will be held 2p.m. Friday, March 1 in Green Lawn Memorial Park, Montgomery with full military honors.

     Memorial contributions may be made in Earl’s name to the American Cancer Society P.O. Box 862 Carnegie, PA 15106 or to the Wounded Warrior Project Donor Care Center, PO Box 758517, Topeka, KS 66675.
