Legacy

Fred Berry, 52, was never far from Rerun, the dancing high school fool he played on 1976-79's What's Happening!! In fact, the actor legally changed his middle name to Rerun in 1988 and still wore his trademark beret and suspenders. Berry, who died of natural causes Oct. 21 in L.A., last appeared in Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star and on NBC's Scrubs. Says fiancee Ruby Blackwell, ''I'll miss his godly spirit, his humor and personality.''
