Obituary of Geoffrey Arnold Berry
December 20, 1930 - April 4, 2023
Geoff was born in Halifax, Yorkshire, and immigrated to Canada in 1957. After a few years at the Royal Canadian Mint in Winnipeg and Ottawa, he joined the National Research Council. A Tool & Die maker, he enjoyed working with Laser & Plasma Physics Scientists at NRC until retirement in 1990. Geoff loved the outdoors, biking, hiking, and X/country skiing. He was a long-time member of the Rideau Trail Association. In June 2022, he moved to Valley Stream Manor, where he made new friends. We express our deepest thanks to the wonderful staff as they looked after his needs with compassion and good humour. Geoff was predeceased by his wife, Mary Chambers. He will be missed by his son, Paul, his daughter-in-law Christine, his wife Jennifer Housden, and his many friends. Complications from pneumonia and Covid ended a good long life.
