John Perry went to be with the Lord on April 28, 2021 with his family by his side. He passed peacefully with his loved ones surrounding him, holding the hand of his granddaughter, Olyvia, who never left his side.
Greg was born in Kalispell, Montana, the son of Edward and Dorothy Perry who have predeceased him. Greg leaves behind his wife Kathy Lucas Perry and his three children, Shaylene, Matthew Perry, Kyla, and a very special grandaughter, Olyvia. He also leaves two sisters Ellen Perry and Pam Erb and family.
Greg served his country in the Navy during the Vietnam War. Upon his return, he worked hard in the local community coaching baseball. He enjoyed fishing and the outdoors. He spent many hours fishing on Lake Champlain living the dream and laughing with his family. Life was an adventure and he embraced it, he took his family along for the ride.
Music was a large part of his life. He started singing in Albany, New York. He sang and played his guitar at every opportunity that crossed his path. He was part of many musical groups including the Rivals and Rovers. He sang in Operettas and every choir and group. When our children were frightened by a power outage or storm, he would get out his guitar and sing with us.
“There’s a new world somewhere they call the promised land, and I’ll be there someday if you hold my hand. I need you there beside me, no matter what I do, for I know I’ll never find another you.” – The Seekers
