Pete died April 1, 2019.

He graduated from New Rochelle High School, where he played football and was a National Merit semifinalist and Boys’ State delegate.

He entered Princeton with our class, following the path of his father, Graham G. Berry ’35, and intending to pursue an engineering degree. He roomed in Gauss Hall with Steve Newman, Frank Ward, Mike Kinard, Wendell Ing, John Nagorniak, and Jon Morse before withdrawing from Princeton midway through our junior year.

Pete earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Kansas State University, as well as several certifications in computer technology. In 1983 he graduated from Seabury-Western Theological Seminary, now known as Bexley Seabury Seminary.

He served as pastor in the Episcopal diocese of Chicago before relocating to California, where he most recently served as assisting priest at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Altadena.

Pete’s wife, Gini, died a few months after Pete. They are survived by sons Daniel and Matthew, to whom the class extends its heartfelt condolences.
