I had the honor of working with Perry for the last 16 months. His dedication to helping me and the rest of his team was exemplary, but his optimism and courage was truly inspiring. He will be deeply, deeply missed by all of his friends at HP. Wishing comfort, grace, and peace to all of his family and friends...

Perry was an exceptional man! I am thankful for the last few years I got to work with him. This picture was at our team meeting in November 2017. We worked hard and played hard! I learned a lot from Perry. His wit, wisdom and guidance are greatly missed! Praying for the family!
