Richard "Dick" Berkshire

July 7, 1937 — January 11, 2024

New Bern

Richard "Dick" Berkshire, 86, of New Bern, NC, passed away on Thursday, January 11, 2024, at Kitty Askins Hospice Center in Goldsboro, NC.

His family will plan a Celebration of Life Service at a later date.

Dick was born on July 7, 1937, in Grosse Pointe Farms, Michigan, to Harry and Florence Berkshire. He was a member of his home church, St. Andrew's Lutheran in New Bern. Dick was a dedicated past member of The Southern Gentlemen Barbershop Chorus in New Bern and The Blue-Chip Chorus in New Jersey. He enjoyed the camaraderie that both singing groups brought to him.

Dick embraced life and loved being on the greens golfing, reeling in a catch while fishing, or traveling far and wide with his lovely wife, Judy. May his memory be a treasure to all who knew and loved him.

Those left to treasure his memory are his sons, Bill Berkshire (Cindy) of Pittsburgh, PA, and Tom Berkshire of Caldwell, NJ; sister, Janet Steinmetz (Richard) of Houston, TX; and grandchildren, William and Lilly Berkshire.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife, Judy Berkshire; and sister Ann Brandt.
