Massachusetts, USA
Death: Jun. 15, 1935

(I believe from family naming history that his middle name was Miner after his mother's surname)

Giles (b.14 Mar 1896) North Andover, Essex Co. Massachusetts. was the 1st of 3 children of Hereford Berry and Minnie J. Frances Miner.
Giles was named for his maternal Grandmother Lydia Giles Tucker's family of Gloucester, MA

His sibling were Hereford Berry Jr. b. 1899, NY and Frances Miner Berry b.1908 Long Beach, Los Angeles Co., California.

Giles married in 1928, to Geraldine Louise Larson b. 1909 Cheyenne, Laramie Co. Wyoming
They had two children, Barbara Jean Berry and Gerald Giles Berry both in Los Angeles Co. CA

His death occurred (16 Jun 1935) as a result of an auto accident caused by a drunk driver on Figuroa and 59th place, in Los Angeles.
His final resting place is totally unknown. There are stories that he was cremated and ashes were scattered at sea. Unfortunately, I have not found evidence YET, to support this.

His wife, Geraldine, remarried and had three additional children.

Giles mother: Minnie J. Frances Miner (abt.1870 P.Q. Canada -1946 Long Beach, CA)is a direct descendant of Thomas Minor b. 1608 Chew Magna, Somerset Co., England
d.1690 Stonington, CT

Giles father: Hereford Berry (1871 Gloucester, MA -1946 Long Beach, CA) graduated MIT, is a direct descendant of Taidge O'Barry aka Thaddeus Barry (b. abt.1639 Ireland-d.1718 Rumney Marsh/Chelsea, Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts, USA

I have documentation if you are also a descendant.
