Thanksgiving for John Berry.

March 2, 2020 @ 12:30 pm – 2:00 pm
Oaks Baptist Church, Huddersfield, HD3 3EW


I’m writing to notify TARS of the passing of John Berry on the 8th February 2020 aged 91years. Despite his memory deteriorating in later years John maintained a very cheerful disposition and great sense of humour.

John and his wife Judy were members of TARS for many happy years. John knew Arthur Randsome personally and went on to write an autobiography ” Discovering Swallows and Amazons”.


We wondered if you might be able to notify the older members of TARS via newsletter? John’s funeral will be held on Monday 2nd March at 11.15am c followed by a longer service of thanksgiving for John 12.30am at Oaks Baptist Church, Huddersfield, HD3 3EW with refreshments afterwards. Dress code : Bright and cheerful.

Yours sincerely

Kate Caruana & Liz Pickering (John’s daughter)
