I was fortunate to have met and worked with Perry on a few mutual projects over the years. Always very pleasant to work with. Whether in a meeting or walking down the hall, he always had a smile on his face and a cheerful hello, which always made your day better. He is missed. To his family and friends, I am deeply sorry for your loss.

I cannot put into words what my beloved husband meant to me. I am at such a loss not having my best friend with me. He was my prince and my joy. He was so giving and loving and I am so grateful to have had God bless me with him. Too short as it turns out. But I will never regret everyday I had with this wonderful man.

Perry was a gentle soul. He had a great sense of humor and was a wonderful chef. What I loved about him about him the most is how loving he was with my sister. He made her so happy; they were truly made for each other. I will miss him dearly.
