The is no other man like Sid Berry - My associate teacher in 1982, he was the best role model anyone could ask for. He loved teaching and did not put up with any nonsense from the students. I can still hear him telling the students to get back to their jobs in the graphics/print shop. He told me I had to just be real with the kids and they would do alright. He gave them hope when many others would not have. I followed his advice and have never been sorry. He cared about everyone around him and always put so much effort into creating a welcoming environment at General Vanier. I will always remember him - his laughter and big hugs, his sense of humour, the way he bragged about his grandchildren and his love of life. What an honour it was to work with him and to learn from him. He is with his beloved Donna now. Rest in peace Sid - you have lived a life that has made a difference for so many. My deepest sympathy to his family - I know that you will miss him. With love, admiration and respect from Nancy Stairs.

As a teacher new to General Vanier SS in 1979, Sid was supportive and encouraging to me. He was a good mentor. His teaching style provided many students with confidence about a future. He taught many of us about the art of printing and was always a great friend. He was the only Department Head I had in 32 years of teaching. Will remember many laughs and his big smile. The printing presses in heaven will never be the same now that Sid is in charge. Marie Gabriel, OCT

I begin this tribute with a very sad and heavy heart. Sid was the kindest, most sincerest man I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. He embraced me from the moment we met, August 1977 at General Vanier Secondary School. The rest is history. Sid brought love, joy, caring, happiness and deep friendship to me, for which I will be so truly grateful for the rest of my life. Today, an appropriate day, November 11, I would like to honour my friend, Sid, as a "hero". What he has given to my life can never be taken. I will remember Sid everyday for the rest of my life. When Sid died, a piece of my life became history and, yet another chapter closed. To Linda, Kenny, Annalle, Glenn, Alexandra, Sydney and all his remaining relatives, thank you for sharing Sid with me for all those years and for embracing me into your families as well. Your love and friendship is, and will always be cherished. You have lost a great dad, father-in-law, grandpa, brother, and friend, which, I know you will never forget. My deepest and most sincerest sympathies to you all, always, Mary Pizer

To the family,
Sid was a good man.He never mentioned the fact that he had medical problems, a man of a few words. His wife Donna (my first cousin) told me years ago about Sid's medical illness, otherwise I'm sure I never would have known. Sid was very courageous in his battle with cancer and would be right back on the computer whenever he got home from check-ups or hospital stays. My family (Donna's relatives)shared many great times with Sid and Donna over the years that were unforgettable. He joined in the fun and music with everyone..Siddy was a great guy. My condolences to all of the family.
I will miss you Sid, very much. Dorothy Partridge

Sometimes, in life, you want to pause. Sometimes you want to fast-forward. But there are those amazing times where you just want to rewind again and again.

To the Family
I had the honour to work with with your dad at General Vanier. When you think of Vanier you have to think of "Mr. Berry" and his Print Shop. If you changed jobs in the morning, he had your new business cards by noon. He always had the interest of the students at heart, and did what he could to make them the best at what they did. Dedication like he had for students and staff is a thing of the past. I am one of the "Lucky Ones" to have met and worked with such a wonderful man. My sincere condolences on your loss.

I have so many fond memories of Mr. Berry from childhood to present day. He was so supportive of us all and always expressed an interest in whatever we were doing. He always made me feel welcome in his home. I will remember his courage and strength in the face of illness. He was blessed with a wonderful family and they were blessed by him. Love Jo

I will never forget the passion you displayed in your Graphic Arts/Print Shop classsroom at General Vanier Secondary School. Every year you always pulled through to prepare the school for a 'Springfest Celebration', with the dedicated help of your students, overall school spirit soared, your class supplied hundreds of buttons and signs for a fun filled week of activities but I will never forget how you motivated everyone around the school to take part and enjoy themselves. Never once did you ever refuse to help promote our school! On behalf of former staff and students, THANK YOU for your unselfish dedication, and may God Bless.
