Lyndel Gene Berry

May 4, 1948 – October 18, 2019



Lyndel Berry left this world on October 18, 2019, at the age of 71. He was born on May 4, 1948 in Houston, Texas, as the eldest son to the late Norwood and Rosie Mae Berry.

He graduated Salutatorian from C. E. King High School in 1966, and earned his degree from the University of Houston with a major in Mathematics in 1971.  He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, and brother.  He will be greatly missed by Brenda, his wife of 25 years, and his beloved family that loved him so dearly.

Lyndel was the founder of Clearwater Utilities, and built the firm into one of the largest underground utility companies in Houston and the surrounding areas.  He was a friend to all who knew him and was a kind and very generous man who helped so many and asked for nothing in return.

He was the patriarch of the Berry family and will be forever missed by his family and all who had the privilege of knowing him.  Lyndel loved life and he dearly loved his family!

He had a special zest for life and an infectious laugh that brought a smile and joy to all who knew him.  He was so proud of all of his family and the businesses they helped him build.  Lyndel was especially proud of his grandchildren and talked about them incessantly!

He also was active with many of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo "Quarter Horse" Committees for many years and gave generously to many charities in the Cypress area.

Donations in lieu of flowers can be sent to Rosehill Social Club, P.O. Box 2500, Cypress, Texas 77429 (281.351.9471) and/or the American Heart Association in his name and honor.
