Robert Wayne "Bob" Berryman

Robert “Bob” Wayne Berryman, 48 of Meridian, ID, passed away at St. Luke’s Hospital Meridian on October 2nd, 2021.

 

Bob was born in Boise, ID in 1973 to Calvert “Cal” and Bette Jo Berryman. He is survived by his loving wife, Cammy Berryman; two kids: Sierra (Austin) Berryman, Brennan Berryman along with his two bonus children: Xander, and Novalli. He is survived by his mother, Bette Jo Berryman (Terry); his sisters: Melody (Tim) Elam and Barbara (Bob) Lighthizer, and many nieces, nephews, and cousins. Bob was preceded in death by his father, Calvert Berryman.

 

Bob graduated from Meridian High School and stayed close to home while working at Albertsons and Hayden Beverage, each for many years. He resided in Meridian for all of his life and loved spending time with his kids, his wife, Cammy and dog, Theo, aka “son”! Bob was very social and outgoing. He loved to catch up with friends and family and was always the first to crack a joke. Bob loved his music and was the first to suggest going to whatever concert was playing in town, or out of town as he traveled to see many of his favorite bands. TOOL, Metallica, and Korn could always be heard blaring from in his car or at home. Whether he was at a concert, rocking out to Guitar Hero, Rock Band or burning you a CD of your favorite tunes, Bob made sure music was part of your life too. 

 

Bob loved working with kids and helping to coach whichever sport was in season. He enjoyed working with Meridian PAL Football and Baseball, and through the years helped to coach his own kids, as well as many other kids in the community.   

 

Bob had a passion for cooking with his whole household and he loved creating new recipes. No one could make a steak or ribs the way that Bob could. He was always a great Christmas chef and his prime rib dinners and brunches will be missed.

 

Bob was a passionate sports fan. He loved the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Atlanta Braves, and he would let you know it, especially if they were playing against your favorite team. He had a passion for calling baseball games from the booth and was always witty on the mic. Bob enjoyed many other hobbies including boating, water-skiing, volleyball and playing pool.

 

Bob was known for giving the updated weather report, one of many examples of the humor he shared to make people smile. His infectious personality and jokes will be missed by so many. 

 

A celebration of life will be held on Friday, October 8th, 2021 from 3:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M. at Tully Park, 2500 N. Linder Rd. in Meridian. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Meridian PAL Youth Sports.
