Berry was a multi-sport star at NC State, lettering in basketball, football and baseball. After graduation, he played 7 years in the NBL, and 8 season in the NFL. A herniated disc ended his athletic career, so he worked for Riddell and later the NC Highway Department.
Berry died in 1980 following a series of strokes. He was married to Virginia (1920-2002) and they had two sons and a daughter.
Berry allegedly played minor-league baseball for a couple years in the Cubs organization, but I cannot find such a record.
