Montreal Gazette - Keen regret is felt in business circles throughout the city at the death of Henry Berry, vice-president and general manager of the Canadian Asbestos Company, who passed away at 11 o'clock yesterday forenoon at his residence, 17 Seymour Avenue, after a protracted illness. Mr. Berry had been associated with the asbestos industry most of his life, there having been comparatively few users for the mineral when he first became interested in it, but in the course of some 30 years of active development work he made it known all over the Dominion. He built up a large business which is now in a flourishing condition. He had a strong personality, was richly endowed with energy and foresight, and these qualities made themselves felt in the extension of the business, in the interest of which he travelled from coast to coast hundreds of times. Mr. Berry was 54 years and 10 months of age. He was a member of the Montreal Board of Trade,and also a member of the Masonic Order. In religion he was an Anglican, belonging to St. Stephen's Church. He leaves a widow, formerly Miss Olive Grout, of Grimsby, Ont., and three sons, John and Frank of Montreal and Robert C.B.Sc.C.E. of Ottawa.
