Help with gravestone translation #lithuania

I would appreciate any help with translation of my great-grandfather's gravestone. He emigrated from Lithuania to the USA in 1885 as "Beryl Pres" when he arrived at Castle Garden. He subsequently lived in Iowa and died in 1924. It appears to me that there is no patronymic on his headstone. He did have a wife, children and in-laws at the time of his death in Iowa, so it is interesting to me that there is no patronymic. I have hit a stone wall in my search for information about him prior to his emigration.
Any help or insight greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Barry Press
