Virgil Berry passed away on March 10, 2024

He is survived by his wife Pam, sisters Carolyn and Linda, brothers Randy and Dennis, and many loving nieces and nephews and many friends.

Virgil was born in Kingsville Texas 80 years ago to Virgil Berry Sr. and Bertha (Skip) Berry.  He grew up in several locations but ultimately ended up in California.  After graduating from Folsom High School in 1962, he graduated from American River College. He met his wife Pam in 1965 and they married in 1968. They celebrated their 56th wedding anniversary on Feb 24, 2024

 After the wedding they moved to Napa and went to work at Mare Island Naval Shipyard.  Virgil was a Forman Electrician for Nuclear Cranes until retiring in 1994. 

Retirement was filled with lots of travel in their RVs and then overseas to China, Panama Cannel, and Europe.

 In 1974 they moved to Vacaville and in 2005 moved to Sun City Lincoln Hills in Lincoln Calif.

 Virgil had a life long love of cars, especially sports cars.  He has enjoyed ownership of a 1959 Corvette (that he drove when he met Pam), a de Tomas Pantera,1963 Split window Corvette, 1965, 2005, 2015, 2018, and his latest 2023 Corvette.  Pam and he enjoyed so many wonderful trips with the Lincoln Hills Sports Car Club and others.  Virgil served several years as club historian and each year lead his Sausage Run up to Lockeford and Jackson.

Every Wednesday he joined other Corvette owners and friends where they discussed corvettes, had breakfast and then discussed corvettes some more.  Their name Jaw Jackers!  

 Virgil was a good friend and wonderful husband to wife Pam.  They were a team and truly enjoyed each others company.  He supported Pam in her endeavors and always encouraged her to “Go and have fun”.
