Myron "Bill" Berry of Rumson passed away peacefully on March 10th, surrounded by his family and devoted friend, Nancy Kochanski after a long battle with cancer. Bill was predeceased by his wife of 41 years, Suzanne "Sue" Lucking Berry, who he met while attending Ramsey High School. After graduation, Bill went on to obtain a degree from Rochester Institute of Technology. Upon finishing college, Bill and his wife moved to Amberg, Germany during Bill's two years of service in the United States Army. In 1978, Bill and Sue moved to Rumson, NJ where they raised their two sons, Darren and Max. Bill was proud to have imparted his love of fishing to his sons with whom he spent many cherished memories on the Navesink River. Bill retired from AT&T Lucent Tech and Avaya Communications in 2006. He had the privilege of working at Bell Laboratories in Holmdel during the companies' most innovative years.

While living in Rumson, Bill made many close friends. He enjoyed spending time with his long time golf partner, Richard Warga and his family; his most trusted friends, David Wilson, Doug and Marylou Greely and family; his work partner of 30 years, Marvin Weitzler; and his favorite comic relief, Janice Brennan. He also enjoyed sharing good spirits with all at Val's tavern and fishing with his children.

Perhaps most of all, Bill enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren who gave him strength to enjoy his last years.

Bill is survived by his sons, Darren Berry and his wife Jennifer of Fair Haven, and Max Berry and his wife Vanessa, also of Fair Haven; his grandchildren, Sadie, Henry, and Riley; his brother-in-law, Jeff Lucking and his wife, Gloria; his sister-in-law, Toni Cook and husband Alan; his nephews Grant, Gregory Lucking, Chris and Brett McGonegal; his sister, Nanette Albano and her husband, Vincent of Hertford, NC and his brother, Ken Berry and his wife Gail of Sunderland, Idaho.

There will be a Memorial Gathering on Sunday April 3rd, from 2-4 pm at the Thompson Memorial Home, 310 Broad St, Red Bank. In lieu of flowers contributions in his name may be made to the Rumson Volunteer Fire Department, East River Rd, Rumson, NJ 07760
