He grew up in Andrews and graduated from Texas Tech University with a degree in zoology. He then obtained his masters degree in education from Sul Ross University in Alpine. Mr. Cox taught chemistry and physics for 32 years at Monahans High School. He was a tough, but fair teacher. He was a true, old-fashioned cowboy. While he taught school, he bought cattle and leased land, building his ranching business. He loved all "critters" but especially horses and cattle. He had race horses and enjoyed checking their status daily.

Family was very important to Berry. He was a loving, generous and protective husband and father, tough and gruff, but with a smile. As Grandad (Papa), he teased, loved and taught his grandchildren and had an open wallet policy with them. He loved buying little children dessert.

He was a member of First Baptist Church in Garden City.

The family suggests memorials be made to Cal Farley's Boys Ranch, P. O. Box 1890, Amarillo, Texas 79174-1890.
