To the family of Mr. Alphonso Berry,
Your dad was a pillar of the Gary community, a steadfast servant of the Lord, and a genius with how ANYTHING worked. Most importantly, he had a kind and generous heart and a loving spirit. He was never too stingy to share a smile!

Please accept our sincere condolences. We grieve with you.
