In his spare time, Ace enjoyed gardening, going to yard sales, spending time with his family and watching NASCAR. He was famous for his one-line jokes and liked to make people smile. Ace was a member of the Central Church of the Nazarene in Fairmont.

He is survived by his wife, Sue Berry; three daughters, Wendie Martin and husband Tim of Fairmont, Heidi Kosik and husband Jamie of Fairmont, and Amy Painter of Ohio; seven grandchildren, Daniel and Lindsey Martin, Tori, Evan and Drew Kosik, Zachary and Lily Painter; three sisters, Barbara Metcalfe and husband John of Fairmont, Carolyn Hornick and husband Roger of Idamay, and Marilyn Satterfield of Fairmont; a sister-in-law, Barbara Richardson and husband Jim of Ohio; brother-in-law, David Stout and wife Cheri of Fairmont; sister-in-law, Sharon Stout of Fairmont; and sister-in-law, Susie Huff of Colorado. He is also survived by his best buddy, his dog Lady Bug.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by four siblings, Richard Berry, Charles Berry and wife Clara, Paul Berry and Marjorie Berry; mother-in-law and father-in-law, Ethel and Carl Molenock; brother-in-law, Bill Stout; and a sister-in-law, Shirley Lopez.

  • Nuke-arms grade stock has been cut by Iran

    Iran has converted three quarters of a nuclear stockpile that it could have turned quickly into weapons-grade uranium into less volatile forms and is well on the way toward transforming the rest, the U.N. atomic agency reported Thursday.
    The development — agreed to by Iran under a nuclear deal it struck late last year with six world powers — leaves Tehran with substantially less of the 20-percent enriched uranium that it would need for a nuclear warhead.
