Chuck Berry Mausoleum, Bellerive Cemetery

Chuck Berry is interred in a large mausoleum off Mason Road, just south of Olive Boulevard in West County in Bellerive Gardens Cemetery.

It is a new building, as far a I can tell, and is constructed of blue granite with light grey granite accents. I do not know if the color blue was chosen in reference to the song “Blueberry Hill” or not.

The door handle is shaped like a guitar, which is fitting. See his house on Whittier Place in the Greater Ville in this post from 2008.
