Dave Berryhill passed quietly at his home sunday morning. He lost a hard fought battle with Cancer. He was attended by his wife throughout.

The following is the Obituary his wife has allowed me to post here first.

"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."

For those customers that had projects with Dave, please contact me.

Since Daves passing, and the end of the Raffle benefiting his wife, I really have not said much. I'd like to take a moment and thank ALL of the Smiths and members that offered their support.
In the interest of time, I probably excluded many that deserved an opportunity to do something, for that I apologize.
Dave was not forthcoming with the seriousness of his last visit to the oncologist, and I understand in hindsight why. His heart was in the right place. I spoke, or texted with him daily for the last couple of months he was alive, and having known him 8-10 years, it was hard to watch.
Jason and I went to Texas and spent a week with Dave, about a week before he passed.
Dave was almost immobile, but we got to have a good laugh or three, gossip, and generally make peace with the situation as I closed his shop up for him.
I promised to finish whatever projects his customers wanted us to, and to also consider continuing his MEUSOC gun.
He loved the gunsmithing community, and that's reflected in this forum.
I will for the last time, convey his, his wife's, and my gratitude.
...and specifically John Harrison and Stuart Palmer for carrying the ball for me.
Thanks
CW
