He was preceded in death by one son, Jonathan “John Boy” Berry; two sisters, Mary Thomas and Margaret Plata; and two brothers, Robert Buracker and Richard Berry.
Lloyd was previously employed by GTE (Frontier Communications) and Fairfax County Storm Water Management. He was a veteran of the Vietnam War, and served his country proudly. Lloyd was a friend to many. He looked forward to gardening each year, and sharing his garden goodies with anyone and everyone. He loved spending time teaching his children about gardening and how to grow perfect plants. He loved receiving visits and sitting around and talking for hours. The smile on his face would light up the room. During his battle with cancer, he never complained and was a gentle soul. He was loved by his family, friends and Chihuahua, Choco, and will be greatly missed.
Funeral services were held 11 a.m. Monday, April 24, at New Destiny Ministry Center with Pastor Shawn Coley officiating.
The family would like to thank Hospice for the love and care they provided to Jr. over the last few months, and Dr. Dayal for years of great care.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to New Destiny Ministry Center.
