He then switched programs and became a chartered accountant. After working in several partnerships, he spent the majority of his career as a sole practitioner. Those who knew him well valued his integrity, honesty and loyalty. He recently relocated to Oakville, Ontario.

Perry was not just a true cousin for me, but a man I enjoyed being around. He helped me in my youth when I was going through some troubles; I will forever be grateful. I always enjoyed his company and he treated me with such kindness. I'm a better person for knowing him. - Posted by: Jaime Gelbloom (Cousin) on: Sep 12, 2019
Perry was my mentor when I was an articling C.A. student. He was most helpful and well respected. He was a true professional. Rest in peace! - Posted by: Dick Conner (Friend ) on: Sep 10, 2019

I am so saddened to hear that my mentor and friend has passed away. I was just talking about him a couple of days ago. In March of 1980 when I had just turned 19 literally days before I went in for an interview with Perry. We chatted for a few moments and he asked me "can you balance your check book" and I said yes and he said "I'll teach you the rest" and boy, did he ever. I worked for/with Perry for 11 1/2 years and we did everything with paper and pencil and a typewriter which I always tell everyone means that I received a solid foundation education from Perry, because if you know how to do it on paper, you truly understand it. Now all these years later, I am still doing books, but on a computer and I fondly remember Perry and appreciate him giving me a chance and teaching me so much. Perry became my friend, my mentor, a father figure and so much more. Funny thing was; two years after he hired me, he told me part of the reason why he hired me was because I was short (as of course, was he) and he said he didn't want an employee too much taller than him. It still makes me chuckle. Rest in Peace Perry and condolences to your family and friends. You will forever remain in my heart and memories. - Posted by: Debbie Schmidt (Past Employee and Friend) on: Sep 10, 2019
