Berry J. Simpson

Berry J. Simpson was born on  May 6, 1960 in Denver, Colorado  to his parents  Charlie and Ellawese Simpson. Berry was raised surrounded by his brothers, Leslie,  Rodney, Charles, Walter ,Bevelee and Kerry; and his sisters, Joan, Brenda, Gwendolyn, Vera and Ellowese.

Berry's education began in the Denver Public School system, where he attended Whitter Elementary School and Fairview Elementary before moving on to Baller Jr. High and West High School. It was at West High School where he proudly graduated and embarked on his journey into adulthood.

In his early years, Berry found great fulfillment and pride as a Boy Scout. This experience instilled in him valuable qualities of leadership, camaraderie, and perseverance that would guide him throughout his life.

Professionally, Berry built a successful career in telemarketing. His dedication to helping others and his natural charisma made him excel in this field. Berry's colleagues remember him as a reliable and hardworking individual who always put the needs of others first.

Beyond his professional achievements, Berry had numerous interests and hobbies that brought joy to his life. He had an undeniable passion for playing cards and Dominoes with friends or family gatherings, skillfully entertaining everyone with his tactics and humor. He also possessed an exceptional love for old-school music, which he enjoyed listening to in moments of relaxation.

Sports played a significant role in Berry's life as well. He was an avid fan who enthusiastically supported various teams throughout the years. Whether it was cheering from home or attending games in person, Berry's energy and devotion were felt by all who shared these experiences with him.

However, what truly defined Berry was his generous spirit. He was known for his genuine kindness and compassion towards others. Always ready to lend a helping hand or offer support to those in need, Berry's selflessness and willingness to give epitomized the essence of his character. He would not hesitate to give you the shirt off his back if it meant making someone else's day a little brighter.

Berry’s presence will be profoundly missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him. His genuine warmth and unforgettable laughter will forever echo in our hearts.
