In his spare he was an avid hunter and fisherman. He and his nephew Tim McDaniel went on many fishing adventures Tim recalled, “These were some of the best years of our lives”. He shared stories of fishing pranks they would pull on each other and making memories with Perry to last a lifetime. It was one Perry’s joys of his life. Another great joy in his life was being Santa at Blair E. Batson Children’s Hospital with help from his loving granddaughter Elf, Jasmine. They would touch these children’s hearts while making memories that she will cherish forever. One of the greatest joy in Perry’s life was being called “Pappaw”. He loved those grandchildren with his whole heart. He was always there for them throughout there whole life and it was blessing to him to be able to watch them grow up. Perry was a man of integrity, and man of honor. He was a role model with qualities and traits that you rarely find now-a-days.
