A celebration is a wonderful thing, today we gather to celebrate a wonderful life; that of Perry Burl Emberton Sr. A cherished brother, a loving father, and a proud grandfather.

Big Perry or Bubba, as he was known to his siblings, left this earthly world Monday November 2, 2020 in Houston, Texas. Just eight days shy of his 82nd Birthday. A life long Texan, born November 10, 1938 in Houston to Walter Lee and Olamae Emberton.

After his retirement from 29 years of Service to Yellow Freight W. of Houston, he lived for several years in Trinity and San Jacinto Counties near his sisters Patsielee and Jaqueline and his brother Ronald Emberton.

Perry joined the United States Airforce and received an honorable discharge. He then went on to follow in his fathers footsteps and became a truck driver, as did both of his sons.

Perry loved fishing, working on cars, building things, stopping off at neighborhood joint to visit with friends; later in life he loved to play his old records and watch old Clint Eastwood movies. Perry especially loved staying in touch with family and friends by phone. He loved to talk, he loved to tell his old stories and even though we all have heard them before, we loved hearing them again.

Perry had done many things in his life, but his greatest accomplishment was his family. He married Elma Louis Smith and he created a family consisting of Timothy Glen Emberton, Perry B. Emberton Jr. and Rebecca Lynn. So today as we celebrate this life our hearts are sad but our souls rejoice for he is no longer here to suffer on this earth.

I have many memories of big Perry, or dad as I lovingly referred to him. He was always telling me stories and talking to me about the events of each day . He made me laugh alot and he was always kind and funny. We shared alot of memories together and he was always telling me stories of things that Becky, Tim and Perry jr. did when they were young. I remember the trips to Trinity with Becky to see him and he always had his candy jars full. When i was ill and going threw my brain surgeries he called Perry jr. every day to ask about me. He was a caring soul. In the last few years we had become quite close and I helped him with many things. Perry jr. and I would grocery shop for him and I would laugh at the candy lists each week. He truly loved his candy. My favorite memory of all has to be just a few days ago on Halloween day when he called and in the conversation he told me he loved me . I think that meant the world to me. I will miss him , his stories , his laugh and his kindess. He truly loved his children and grandchildren and I am blessed to be a part of his family and to have been part of his life. We love u dad , rest easy. U will be missed greatly.
