WALLINGFORD - Gregory Berryman, 55, departed this life unexpectedly on April 28, 2021. He was the beloved husband of Angela (Spagna) Berryman.
Gregory was born in New Haven, CT on April 5, 1966 to the late Charles and Joanne (Heyden) Berryman. Greg graduated from Lyman Hall High School in 1985 and went on to serve in The United States Air Force as an SRA in the 812th Comptroller Squad.
After his Military service, Greg returned home and began his career in the EMS field. He graduated from The University of Connecticut Paramedic Program and served as a paramedic for L&M, AMR and Middlesex Hospital for 15 years. He then transitioned into the field of EMS education working for Hartford Hospital and most recently Code One Training Solutions. EMS education was his true passion. He loved teaching and he loved all his students. He will be greatly missed by all his friends, co-workers and students throughout the EMS Field. Angela and Jack will be forever grateful for the outpouring of support they have received from the EMS community.
At home Greg was full of energy and happiness. His presence could light up the room and he always had the best stories to tell. He loved spending time with his family and friends, traveling and attending sporting events.
He was a lifelong avid Boston Red Sox fan naming our dog Tessie - or as Greg referred to her: “the best dog ever” - after a long-time anthem of the Red Sox. Tessie and Greg had an unbreakable bond, and she will miss him every day.
Even though Greg was taken too soon, he lived an extraordinary life surrounded by people who loved and adored him. He will be forever missed.
Gregory is survived by his wife of 26 years, Angela Berryman; two wonderful children: son Jack Berryman of Wallingford and daughter Ciera Berryman of Carmel, Indiana; mother Jo Anne Berryman; sister and brother-in-law Lisa and David Boren; as well as numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and extended family members.
A private memorial service will be held at the B.C. Bailey Funeral Home in Wallingford.
