PORTLAND – Robert “Bob” C. Berry, 69, of 1371 U.S. Route One, Cape Neddick, died Friday, June 5, at the Maine Medical Center, surrounded by his loving family.

He was born March 11, 1940, in Lewiston, a son of the late P. Clyde and Beatrice (Hobbs) Berry and graduated from Edward Little High School in Auburn. He had worked for Leighton Chevrolet, for Wynn’s Automotive, and for 23 years at Starkey Ford retiring as service manager.

He was very active in the York Community, having coached in the boys and girls Little League, Pop Warner Football and Seacoast Basketball. He was instrumental in starting the Pop Warner Football League. He enjoyed his years of coaching the youth in York and later watching his grandchildren participate in sports!

He inspired not only the youth but adults as well with his enthusiasm and positive competitive nature. In addition to sports he enjoyed NASCAR, antique cars and spending time with family and friends. He spent much time with the Maine Handicap Skiing Program, teaching handicapped children to ski at Sunday River. His quick wit and sarcasm will be sadly missed!

He leaves his wife of 50 years, Martha (Turner) Berry; two sons, Richard C. Berry and his wife, Kathy, of Belfast and Robert C. Berry and his wife, Shelli, of Moody; two daughters, Paula B. Wheeler and her husband, Danny, of Bethel and Belinda L. Macri and her husband, Garrison, of Hamilton, Mass.; a brother, Paul Berry of Gray; a sister, Nancy Jewett of Sabattus; eight grandchildren, Zachary, Travis, Justin, Hallie, Hillary, Owen, Ryan and Cameron; and four stepgrandchildren, Ryan, Casey, Alison and Sarah.
