Rodney Wayne Berry
Rodney Wayne Berry passed away suddenly on November 6, 2019. Rod was born on June 26, 1963 in Des Moines, Iowa. In 1966 his family moved to Anaconda where he lived and went to school. Rod graduated from Anaconda High in 1981. After finishing high school, he went on to work various jobs in the Deer Lodge Valley, before finally settling in Deer Lodge where he worked as a mechanic, cook and landfill manager. Rod was a jack of all trades, however, he was best known for his excellent cooking skills. He loved to BBQ and cook for his many friends who always enjoyed the food he made. Rod had a big heart and was happy to volunteer his time during the holidays to make dinners for others in town that didn’t have a place to go. His other hobbies included playing practical jokes on anyone that crossed his path, hunting, fly fishing, making jerky and sausage and enjoying a drink with friends.
Rod is survived by his best friend and wife Cathy Curran, sister Tami (Gene) Stigen, nephews Gregory and Garrett Stigen, son Scott (Ashley) Berry, daughter Roni (Leland Goodman) Arnett, sons Jeremiah and Nicholas Maulding, grandchildren Logan, Kloee, and Makayla Maulding, Travon Arnett and Olivia Goodman, several aunts, uncles and cousins.
