Joseph Alonzo Berry ’68

Published in Dec. 8, 2005, issue

Joe died of pulmonary hypertension Oct. 13, 2004, at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. He was 59 and a physician.

He came to Princeton from Lawrence Academy in Groton, Mass., where he was on the football and basketball teams. At Princeton he majored in biology and ate at the Woodrow Wilson Society.

He was a graduate of Howard University Medical School and a fellow at SUNY's Downstate Medical School. He completed

his internship at Harlem Hospital in New York City.

After his medical training, Joe established the Roanoke Amaranth Rural Health Group in Jackson, N.C., and subsequently practiced in Albuquerque and Edna, Minn. In 2001, he moved to Stafford County, Va., to join AmeriChoice as vice president of standards and practices and medical management.

To his wife, Miriam Welch Berry; their sons Michael Alonzo, Jeffrey Dwayne, Kevin Shawn, Charles Ashley, and Jamel Ajani; daughter Miraj Ada; sisters Constance Berry Newman and Barbara Joanne Berry Duvoe; and 13 grandchildren, the class extends its deepest sympathy.

Joseph Alonzo Berry learned a lot from Princeton. He proudly donned an orange and white tie that was in my possesion shortly after he died. He was a devoted father, a gentle man, and knew what teamwork was all about.
