Obituary for Chris A. Berry

Chris A. Berry, age 50, of Piqua, peacefully ascended to heaven on Saturday, September 22nd. at the Hospice Unit of UVMC, Troy. Chris was born on April 5th, 1968, in Dayton, Ohio, and is survived by his father, Harold Berry, of Springfield, Ohio, mother Rosetta Ridenour, and his devoted, loving fiancé, Caren Febo, both of Piqua. Chris was a quiet, thoughtful and caring person, possessed of a wry sense of humor with just a tinge of sarcasm, and could always be counted upon when the time came to step up and do for others who were in need. Chris graduated from Troy High School in 1986. Growing up, Chris enjoyed playing football and was a quarterback through all his school years, transitioning to become a lifelong sports fan, especially of his beloved Cincinnati Reds. His love of music led to being a member of the band Vendetta for several years, displaying his vocal talents. He will be keenly missed and fondly remembered by his co-workers at the ITW(Hobart) Food Equipment Group in Piqua, where he was a Parts Processor. Those friendships transcended the workplace, whether it be gathering with the gang at Fricker's or BW3s for a game and a beer, a cookout at Kim and James's house, going to a ballgame with Mike and George, or attending a concert or festival with Eric, with whom he shared a passion both for classic rock and the collection of that music on vinyl. For those who knew him, he was a good, reliable co-worker, a trustworthy friend and most importantly, a good person to navigate the twists and turns of life with.

A celebration of Chris's life will be held on Saturday, September 29th, at Melcher-Sowers Funeral Home in Piqua. The service will be conducted by Rev. Fr. Daniel Hunt, commencing at noon. Visitation will begin one hour prior to the service. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to Ohio's Hospice of Miami County, or a charity of the donor's choice. Interment of Chris's ashes will be at a later date, at the convenience of the family.
