Christopher M. Berini

Bradford, Vt. — Christopher M. Berini, 59, died Wednesday, Feb. 12, 2014, at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, N.H.

He was born Feb. 26, 1954, in Barre, Vt., the son of Geno and Sylvia (Lefevre) Berini. He attended school in Barre where he graduated from Spaulding High School in 1972.

He served four years in the U.S. Navy aboard submarines. For over 25 years he worked a Cold Regions Research & Engineering Laboratory in Hanover, N.H., before retiring three years ago due to ill health.

He enjoyed riding snowmobiles and motorcycles and restoring sports cars. His greatest love was for animals, especially dogs.

He was a very giving person who did a lot of good for people by helping them out in hard times. His door was always open to anyone who needed his help.

He is survived by his mother, Sylvia Kennedy of Chelsea, Vt. and many friends. He was predeceased by his father, Geno Berini and his brothers, David Berini and Geno Joseph Berini.

There will be no public calling hours. A graveside memorial service will be held later this spring.
