Corky was born and raised in Tulia, Texas, on December 4, 1935, to Jack and Katharine Berry. He was the oldest of four siblings—Ray Lynn, Lafone, Francis, and Debra. He served in the United States Army from 1958-1960. Upon his return from Germany, he married Julia Fay Culwell. Together they resided in Tulia for many years raising three children—Karl, Carmen, and Celia—on a homestead south of town where his son Karl still lives today. Corky was an avid horseman, a World Champion Steer Roper, and a man with many stories to share.

Those left behind to cherish his memory are his son Karl Berry of Tulia, Texas; his daughter Carmen Jessop of Presho, South Dakota; his daughter Celia Gibbs and son-in-law Tim Gibbs of Graford, Texas; his sister Debra Cook and husband Doug Cook of White Deer, Texas; and his sister Francis Doyal of Amarillo, Texas.
