Kerry Brooks Beverly, 59, passed away in his home in Williamsburg on April 22, 2020 after a courageous battle with cancer.
Kerry was born to the late Philip E. Beverly and Elizabeth Ivey Beverly in Portsmouth, Virginia. After graduating Manor High School, Kerry then went on to graduate in 1985 from the Apprenticeship Program of the Norfolk Naval Shipyard, starting a career that spanned over 34 years. He retired as a quality assurance manager in 2016. He was an avid scuba diver and achieved advanced open water diver certification. He was also a cruise enthusiast, having been on over thirty cruises. When he wasn’t traveling, he devoted his time to his salt water fish aquariums.
