Percy was a great Man. He loved his family more than anything. I couldn’t have asked for a better person as a Grandfather to my two Children Stuart Frith and April Frith. He loved them two so very much. He had such pride and joy for these two Grandchildren. He taught Stuart and April a lot about the outdoors and took them RVing and camping all over Florida and the Mountains. He loved taking them to Disneyworld and DollyWood countless times always would buy them all season passes with a trip to the beach while out on the road traveling with his beautiful Wife and his Grandchildren. He was a great Husband, Father,, Grandfather, Brother, Uncle and Friend. He will be missed by us all. We love you Percy. I’m including a picture of his Great Granddaughter Annabell. She looks exactly like her Mother and her Brother at this same age 2. Rest In Peace 🙏🏻

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.
In memory of Percy, out thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Frieth family.

Mona and I have been friends way over 20 years!! She is like a sister to me. Sunday’s were always her days to go spend time with her mom and dad. No matter what came up she was there faithfully on Sundays. I always admired her for that. I’m so glad I got to know her father and mother very sweet people. Her dad always loved to travel and be around his family. He will be missed. I pray God gives them the strength they will need each day going forward. I love you Mona and Mary. May Percy RIp ❤️❤️
