Robert Warren “Bob” Berry, age 84, of Preston, Minn., passed away peacefully Friday, August 16, 2013, at the Harmony Community Healthcare after a one month illness.

Bob was born October 6, 1928, in St. Paul, Minn., the son of Lloyd G. and Margaret (Withee) Berry.

Following the sale he work for Anderson Chevrolet, the Preston Liquor Store, Fillmore County Fairgrounds and “chauffeured” his wife, Jean, around with her Avon products. He also volunteered with his wife, Jean, at the Fillmore County Historical Society in Fountain.
