Frank was a classmate and friend. He was a terrific guy who seemed always to be in a good mood. Always ready to laugh.
He was a gentleman and will be missed by many.

Frank was a very intelligent man. He had a wealth of knowledge of guns and jewelry. He worked hard to build his business. Being known an avid appraiser and for an unique laugh will live on in Corinth for many years to come.

Frank Berry was a very intelligent man and always very busy but never to busy to take time to listen to those he loved and respected. He loved helping others achieve their goals . Frank valued character over pedigree. Frank loved to laugh and would do anything within his power to make sure every customer who did business with him left with a smile on their face. I consider Frank Berry family and cherished his advice. God has blessed him and he will never be forgotten as I believe he will go down in history as one of the greatest leaders in the City of Corinth MS.

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal. Rest In Peace Frank.

Sincerely

Brian Ada
