I had the pleasure of working with Perry for a few years. His cheerful attitude was infectious, and every call we had always consisted of at least a few laughs. He will be missed by everyone at Fisk and TPC that worked with him, and my thoughts are with his family and friends.

On behalf of the Williams family, our deepest condolences go out to the Wray family during this difficult time of loss. Our prayer is that God's strength is upon you all and that peace will be prevalent as you gather to lay his body to rest.

I was fortunate to be able to have met and work with Perry, at FISK Houston, for 3 weeks as they went through an IT personnel transition. While there, Perry was very kind and helpful. He was very proud and grateful for the work we were able to accomplish.

I was very sorry to hear the news of Perry's passing. Although it has been years since I have seen him, I fondly remember the 15+ years we worked together. We spent a lot of time on the phone as we went through numerous software upgrades/conversions and I will be forever grateful for everything he taught me! He was so good at what he did, but mostly I will remember how patient and kind he was and how he loved to laugh. He was immensely dedicated to his work, but he always took the time to ask how my children were and he loved to share updates about Parker. My heartfelt prayers and wishes go out to all of those who loved him and will miss him in their lives. All the best in heaven my friend :)

Perry and Pat both worked for me back in our Pennzoil days. Twins, they were dedicated to taking care of the business we were charged to handle. Loyal and competent, I will not soon forget their commitment and service. May God bless all those who mourn their loss. Amen. Al Abbott, former Director, Information Network, Pennzoil Company.

I worked for and with Perry while employed with the IT department at Roy Anderson Corporation, in Gulfport MS. Every week we would have our one-on-one phone conferences. He often spoke of how proud he was of his son, Parker. Perry's chuckles can still be heard in my mind as we would laugh about the traffic in Houston versus the Gulf Coast. Perry was a great guy and I am honored to have worked with him.

During this time my thoughts and prayers are with Parker. I have 2 young adults in college and I know the stress and strain. I can only imagine that, coupled with the grieving process of losing a loved one. Parker, may you grieve as long as you need. Not one day longer. Not one day less. May you know that you are deeply loved and that you are never alone.

Peace be with you.
