InfoThomas Charles "Tom" Berryhill

Son of former Assemblyman/Senator/State Ag Commissioner Clare Berryhill.

Berryhill graduated from Ceres High School, and attended Modesto Junior College and Cal Polytehnic University in San Luis Obispo. He has been involved with his family's wine grape business, Berryhill Orchards, southwest of Ceres. As a kid, Tom Berryhill campaigned for his father, the late Assemblyman Clare Berryhill, for the Assembly seat. Clare later became state director of Food and Agriculture. After his unsuccessful Assembly bid, Berryhill worked on Monteith's Senate staff.

Berryhill underwent a heart transplant surgery four years ago and said his health is perfect. He said he has had no rejection problems and has "all the energy in the world" to take on the Assembly.

Berryhill and his wife Loretta have one daughter, Samantha, 4. He also had a daughter, Jessica, 19, from a prior marriage.
