I wish a moderator could take the time to sort through all his posts. Sort knowledge by machine.
And to Monte's credit. Make a Permanent knowledge pinned posting of it all.
Yes Monte. Going to miss your knowledge and wisdom. Especially the conversations.

This is very sad news for many here on the forum.
Monte was a type of person who'd do whatever he could to help another detectorist.
He & I put a LOT into the AA Batter test thread.
He was buying batteries and sending them to me to add to the test.
We spent a good deal of time in PM's plotting the course & putting the topic together.
He was a tireless companion in the project, lots of late night back channel contributions & communications.
He was an inspiration not just to that project but in anything he got involved with.
"Monte" my friend you will be missed.

This is a shock to most of us as Monte was all of our friend and help a lot of people with his knowledge of the detecting . He will be greatly missed .

Condolence to his family as he was a great man that loved his hobby.

The Life of Monte Berry​

The Berry Family regret to announce with deep sorrow the passing of Monte from this life. We love him and will miss him greatly. This forum is to share stories, messages, life history, etc. and celebrate his life. Please share any memories, stories, condolences, etc. Feel free to send PM's as well to Monte or Bryan. Note: The AHRPS and Stinkwater Wells website and forums will continue and hopefully remain active. His family will administer the site for the foreseeable future. Perhaps at the upcoming outing he planned we can again celebrate his life and impact on the metal detecting community.

Sorry to hear about Monte. Never met the man but I always enjoyed reading his post and articles. The Metal Detecting community has lost a national treasure with his passing.

Rest in Peace my friend

I have only a few printed and PDF from some of his posts way back when.
Here is a PDF download linked from his website; about coil skills.

His knowledge of this hobby will be truly missed. I remember he would always ask questions about the coil I was using. He also provided a lot of information about each coil. RIP Monte.
