THANK YOU 10.12.13

(Continued)

ON THURSDAY, Oct. 3, 2013, a group of Muskogee Episcopalians went to St. Paul’s Cathedral in Oklahoma City to celebrate the life of The Reverend Max B. Berry Jr. It was a sad but joyful day as we were reminded of what an extraordinary man Max was and how fortunate we were to have him with us in Muskogee for 14 years.

Max was born in Muskogee in 1937 and as a young boy was an Acolyte at Grace Episcopal Church. He moved with his family to Oklahoma City in the ’40s, where he graduated from high school and the University of Oklahoma, then later from Seabury-Western Theological Seminary in Chicago. Max loved the thought that he began and ended his active ministry at Grace. In 2004 he and his wife Carole retired to Oklahoma City to be near their four children. He was a wonderful and compassionate friend to everyone in Muskogee who knew him and touched lives wherever he went.

If you would like for Carole to know that you will always remember Max, send your condolences to Grace Episcopal Church, 218 North 6th, Muskogee, OK 74401, and they will be forwarded to Carole. God bless the Berry family
