Jamie loved the outdoors and spending time in nature, where he found peace. He was a hunter and fisherman and loved camping. Since retirement he was able to spend more time on his boat. Jamie enjoyed planting a vegetable garden every year with his daughters.

Jamie is survived by two daughters, Julie Berry and Katie Berry, both of Stanley; his father, James Berry; his brother, Joel Berry; the mother of his children, Lori Stuchkus Berry; his second wife, Karen Berry; her children, Shawn (Brianne) Snyder, Tara (Neil) O’Brien and Tania Chen, and her grandchildren; five aunts, Pauline Kulzer, Jennifer (Wayne) Savage, Ann Marie Comfort, Mickey (Roland) Dowen, and Barb (Leonard) Bolton; one uncle, Allen Owen; many cousins; his dog, “Bear”; and many special friends at the Victor School Bus Garage.

The Berry family wants to thank the nurses and staff on the 2nd floor and in ICU at F.F.Thompson Hospital for their gentle care of Jamie and the kindness shown to his family.
