I wanted to share a memory of Perry that has left a lasting impression on me. On a fifth grade field trip, I fell and cut my knee pretty badly. The sight of it made me queasy. The teacher asked if anyone had a soda to settle my stomach. Perry gave his only drink, a Sprite, to me. I'm sure he didn't have anything to drink when he ate his lunch later in the day.
After all these years, I have never forgotten his kindness to me that day. It speaks volumes about his compassionate, caring nature.
I am saddened by your loss. I pray that God will wrap his loving arms around you in the difficult days ahead.

We are so stunned and sorry to hear about Perry! We just loved Perry! He was one in a million and had a good heart. One of my favorite pics is of him holding our daughter, Briana, when she was 2 days old. She was 9 lbs. but looked so tiny in the arms of a gentle giant. That was 28 yrs. ago. He was a good friend and will be greatly missed. He will always be in our hearts and memories. Our thoughts and prayers are with Amy, Rick, and all of the family. Words will never express how sorry we are!

Dear family, we are so sorry for your loss! Perry was the best guy you could ever meet! He worked with Jerry for years. Built the motor in his black Chevy truck. That motor is still in it and the truck is well taken care of. We will miss him so much! Prayers for comfort during this difficult time 🙏 If you need anything just know we are here to help.
