Michael Lynn Berry, 78, of Buckhannon, WV and formally of Flatwoods, WV went home to be with the Lord on Sunday, March 21, 2021 at the United Hospital Center in Bridgeport, WV. Michael was born in Braxton County and was a son to the late Gordon and Marjorie (Miller) Berry. Michael is survived by his wife, Anona (Voeks) Berry whom he shared 54 memory filled years with.

He is also survived by his son, Derek Berry of Buckhannon, WV, daughter Michele Berry and companion Michael Riggs of Bridgeport, WV, and two nephews; Doug and Dave Berry. Michael is preceded in death by his brother William Berry.

Michael graduated Sutton High School in 1960 and continued his education at West Virginia State earning a bachelor’s degree, and graduated Penn State with his master’s degree. He put his knowledge to use at West Virginia Wesleyan College where he was a math professor for 42 years.

Michael built a memorable life in Buckhannon and was a faithful member at Buckhannon Alliance Church. He enjoyed reading, collecting stamps, and had an admiration for model trains as well.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the American Heart Association or the Prostate Cancer Foundation.

His family will honor his request for cremation and a graveside service will be held at a later time. Fond memories and words of comfort can be shared at stockert-paletti.com.

I was in Mr. Berry's calculus class in 1964-65. He was a terrific teacher and made the class interesting and challenging. Richard A. Wolfe Class of 1968

Mike was a wonderful neighbor to us for 26 years. He and Anona were true blessings to us. We shared many conversations in our backyards and enjoyed seeing the family at church on Sunday’s. Randy and I send our deepest condolences to Anona, Michelle and Derek.
Love and Prayers,
Randy and Susan Cunningham

Professor Berry was my favorite teacher while I was at Weslyan. (You too, Mrs. Berry!) He was like a dad to me when I was there. I remember my family having dinner at his house so my sister and Derek could meet. The Berry's are very special people and I think of them often, especially in my fond memories of WVWC. Rest in peace, Mr. Berry!

As WV Wesleyan faculty members, we have known Mike since he first came to WVWC. We, especially Professor Paul Richter, have had a number of good discussions with Mike, about both Science Division issues and stamps. We appreciated his devotion to teaching mathematics at WVWC, and offer Anona and family our heart-felt sympathy.

Mike was a good friend and colleague at West Virginia Wesleyan College. My job was slated to be cut in 2006. Mike phased into retirement so that I could keep the job I still hold today. That’s the type of man he was.
As a student of Mike, he peppered my proofs with things like H.H. and P.P. You had to ask to see what these abbreviations meant. They stood for horse hockey and pig puckey. Even though they were words of correction, you had to laugh. We were required to go to his office an hour per week when we had him for a proof-based class. He had lots of rules and very high standards, which did not win him the accolades of all, but those of us who understood how much he cared and wanted to make us better still sing his praises. He was truly one of a kind. My condolences to Anona, Michele, and Derek.
