Former San Bernardino resident Fred Berry, 52, the actor famous for playing red-beret-wearing Rerun on the 1970s TV sitcom “What’s Happening,” has died police said last week.

Berry died last Tuesday at his home in Los Angeles apparently of natural causes. The county coroner was investigating, but friends said Berry had been ill because of a recent stroke.

"What's Happening!", which ran from 1976-1979, focused on three teenage friends (Rerun, Raj and Dwayne) who learn about life, women and trouble while growing up in Los Angeles.

He continued to dabble in show business.
Berry recently appeared on the TV shows "Star Dates" on the E! Entertainment Network, MTV's "Doggy Fizzle Televizzle" with Snoop Dogg and in a cameo role in the David Spade comedy film "Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star."

Berry married a dancer while in his 20s, and the two divorced, remarried and divorced again. Berry also married and divorced his second wife twice, most recently in 1991. He also married and divorced two other women.
