Dave Berryhill has passed away
« on: May 14, 2015, 03:26:58 PM »
Its with great sadness I announce the loss of Dave Berryhill.
Dave passed quietly at his home last sunday morning at about 7:30 am. He was attended throuout by his wife.
The following is the obituary his wife is posting, and has allowed me to post here.

"David Wayne Berryhill aged 54 of Prosper, Texas passed away Sunday May 10, 2015 after a courageous battle with cancer. Dave was born May 26, 1960 in West Covina, CA to William and Joan Reina Berryhill.
He is survived by his wife Lesa Mitchell Berryhill also of Proser and stepdaughter Carmen Hanney of Austin, TX . Dave is also survived by a sister Becky Steinfeld and brother Arley Berryhill both of Albuquerque, NM, and his two Dachshund daughters Greta and Lily. He was preceded in death by his parents and a sister Debra Berryhill. Dave was a retired officer with the Redondo Beach CA Police Force. Dave was a gunsmith and owner of Berryhill Customs LLC, he was well known for his work with 1911's. Dave's gentle disposition and loving smile will be missed."

A lot of us 1911 shooters know who he was.

Just returned from Ga State shoot and saw this.  Damn, so sorry to hear.  Dave was a wonderful person and a top notch gunsmith.  I'll miss talking with him.
