Timothy Graham Berry
January 28, 1945 – June 4, 2022
Timothy (“Tim”) Berry, 77, of Powell, Wyoming passed away peacefully June 4, 2022 with his wife by his side. His 15-month battle with cancer is over and he is free. Cremation has taken place.
Tim was born on January 28, 1945 in Topeka, Kansas to Cleetis and Una (Graham) Berry. He graduated in 1963 from Washburn Rural High School, and was a proud member of the Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation. Tim was also a member of the Army National Guard and served his country in the Vietnam War. While stationed in the Mekong Delta in 1969 he earned two Bronze Stars.
In 1993 Tim married his soul-mate Linda McQuitty. He retired in 2000 after 34 years with Topeka’s Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company, then he and Linda fulfilled their dream of moving to the mountains. Tim always loved hunting, fishing and camping with friends and family, so he was in his element. He also honored his Native American ancestry by creating many art pieces from deer antlers and buffalo skulls with inlaid copper and beads. Tim and his wife enjoyed 29 wonderful years together.
Survivors include his wife Linda, brother Ken (Aleda) Berry of Topeka, and a host of beloved cousins and friends. He will be greatly missed. Please consider a donation in his name to the Native American Rights Fund or the American Cancer Society.
