Man where do I start. Berry used to work for my family company and from day one me and him got along great. often after work we would hang out and talk about the day struggles with the job he was so interested in driving and operating the big heavy dozers and excavators and learning how to do all aspects of the job and it was a joy for me to train him and show him how to do it because I could see that he really had a passion for it Berry is one of those guys that when you meet him you instantly Can find a connection with him and his personality because he’s a straightforward kind of guy and often times could turn lemons into lemonade. Berry you left us way too soon and I will never forget you and I am honored to have been your friend.
