KERMIT W. BERRY
Kermit W. Berry, age 70, of Uniontown, Ohio, passed from this life on May 22, 2021 at Summa Hospital Akron, Ohio, after a short battle with cancer.
Kermit was born on November 1, 1950 to William E. and Dorothy Berry in Russellville, Kentucky. Later, his family moved to Louisville, Kentucky, where he graduated from Fairdale High School.
On August 3, 1979, he married Vickie Kaufman of Morrison, Illinois. They were blessed with two daughters and two sons-in-law, Alicia (Steven) Graybill of Canton, Ohio and Katie (Jonathon) Hicks of Springville, Alabama. Kermit was “Pa Pa Kerm” to four wonderful grandchildren, Caleb and Samuel Hicks and Joseph and Lydia Graybill.
Kermit was baptized in the Louisville, Kentucky Christian Assembly Church and later, in 1991, moved to Illinois, where he served the Moline Gospel Assembly Church for 25 years. He and his wife retired to Uniontown, Ohio in 2016, where he has worked and served in the Gospel Assembly Church until his death.
Kermit was preceded in death by his parents and is survived by his two brothers, James (Pat) Berry of Ohio and Ronald (Joy) Berry of Kentucky.
He will be remembered by his many friends and family for his slow smile, his telling of funny jokes, and his love of all you can eat buffets.
