Perry was born and raised in MacGregor, Man. Early in his life Perry was involved with several sports. He first played hockey across the back lane from his home. He attended Kelvin High School in Winnipeg to pursue a position on the Monarchs Team. He taught referee clinics and refereed tournaments from the Arctic Circle to the continent of Australia. Perry was one of the video goal judges with the NHL when the Winnipeg Jets played. He served as Referee-in-Chief for the province of Manitoba with the M.A.H.A. and was on the Standing Rules Committee for C.A.H.A. in Ottawa. His baseball participation also started early in his life with catcher being his favourite position. He went on to become an umpire and did umpire at the Pan Am Games in 1967. Known to his teammates as Moose, he was a fierce competitor. Perry worked as a plumber for Cobbes Plumbing and Heating for 13 years. In 1960 he married Carol Hillman and they raised their three children, Todd, Lori and Jackie. To quote his kids, "Perry was an awesome dad." He began teaching plumbing in 1974 and later taught gas fitting at Red River Community College. During the next few years Perry collected antiques. Even more valued that his antiques were Perrys grandchildren. They affectionately called him "Hockey" and enjoyed many treasured memories. In 1994, Perry met his soulmate and within a year married Pat Paterson. Their relationship brought love, laughter and much happiness to them both. Perry will be sadly missed by those who knew and loved him. We give thanks to God for this special man. Perry told a friend, "When I get to Heaven, my dad Walter will be waiting with two tickets to the World Series, and you know the Yankees always win in Heaven." Funeral service for Perry will be held on Wednesday, July 5, at 2:00 p.m. in Sturgeon Creek United Church, 207 Thompson Dr., with the Reverend Beth Rutherford officiating.
