Obituary For Harold V. Berry

Mr. Harold V. Berry passed away Thursday September 16, 2021.

Harold Vincent Berry was born May 22, 1965 in Youngstown, Ohio to Harold and Alice Berry. Harold was known as ‘Vince’ to his family and ‘HB’ to his close friends. Harold attended Jefferson Elementary School, Hayes Middle School and Rayen High School. Harold played football, threw shot put and was a notable little league and high school baseball player, known for his pitching and hitting skills.

He attended New Bethel Baptist Church in Youngstown, Ohio. Harold moved to NC in the late ‘80s after a year of attending Teen Challenge.

He started as a barber and became a hair stylist and salon owner for almost a decade. He worked as a stylist in other salons throughout his career including Leon's, Castle of Styles, BlackBerry Salon Studio (which Harold and Carolyn owned), Master Minds and Industry 21. Harold attended classes at local community colleges and taught styling classes at beauty schools. He received his Cosmetology License from Leon’s Beauty School in 1992.

Harold attended several churches over the years including Evangel Fellowship of God, Word of Life Tabernacle, Destiny Christian Center and Mount Zion Baptist Church in Greensboro.

He attended City Council and school board meetings, coached track and basketball and supported local youth. His hobbies included listening to jazz and gospel, taking care of his cars, being a responsible businessman and his favorite hobby above all was being ever present in his son Myles’ life.
