Berry was born in Perth to Annie Adelaide (née Holding) and George Berry. He attended the Fremantle Boys' School, but left at the age of 13. Berry enlisted in the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) in 1941, and during the war served as a flight sergeant. After the war, he worked in Spearwood as a master butcher, and served on the Fremantle Road Board from 1946 to 1952. Berry moved to Carnarvon in 1954, where he farmed bananas. He served as secretary and treasurer of the local Liberal Party branch, and entered parliament at the 1968 state election, winning his seat from Labor's Eric Heenan. Berry was re-elected at the 1974 election, but retired at the 1980 election. He died in Carnarvon in April 1998, aged 84. He had married Dorothy Isabel Straughair in 1943, with whom he had three children. A son-in-law, Ian Laurance, was also a member of parliament.
