William Perry

Obituary of William J Perry

The man we know as Husband, Father, Papa, Brother, Uncle, Cousin and Friend would have wanted us to remember him with a light in our hearts and a smile on our face. William Jeffery "Jeff" Perry, born to William Sr. & Nelda Perry., February 16, 1950 was taken from us too soon on Saturday, November 14th. His life was colored with the experiences of service and unmatched dedication to any task he was assigned. From his military service, love for hot-rod cars and owning his own auto shops to building Ford trucks and running auto body shops in North Carolina and Colorado...he was adored and liked by all he met. Yet the greatest of his accomplishments and proudest achievements in life were his family. He shared an undying love and adoration for his wife, Cookie. All that knew them, knew what love looked like in human form. His children and grandchildren opened his heart in a way we were all so blessed to witness. Of all his loves, good food closely trailed them all - he held a unique excitement for a good hot dog and ice cream cone. There truly aren't enough words to convey the way he touched the lives of those he was close to and even those that were fortunate enough to be passersby. His legacy lives on through those survived by him, wife Cookie, sons, Paul, Nathan and Patrick, daughters, Morgan, Sara and Alex, son-in-law Alfredo and daughter-in-law, Kia, and "Fred", grandchildren, Chanel, Jaelin, Julian, Caleb, Eli, Giselle, Jayla and Max, sister Brenda and brother Tim along with several nieces and nephews. May the depth of his laugh, length of his class and height of his love live on in all of us for years and years to come.
