William Lee "Gravy/Bill" Berry, Jr. age 94 of Glen Dean, KY passed away September 27, 2023 at his residence surrounded by his family. He was born in Glen Dean, KY on January 22, 1929, son of the late Nancy Skaggs and William Lee Berry, Sr. William was a member of Goshen Baptist Church, a retired machinist with Commonwealth Aluminum and a veteran of the United States Army. He enjoyed being outdoors, especially fishing and hunting. His favorite past time was mowing - he kept nearly all of Glen Dean mowed and trimmed.
