Perry was retired from Delta Air Lines and cherished his time spent there. If you were connected to Delta in any way, you may as well have been family.

He was a member of First Baptist Church of Zebulon. He served as a Teacher and Deacon at various times at different churches. He also served as a boys’ baseball and a girls’ softball coach. Perry enjoyed traveling, woodworking, genealogy, watching golf, Braves baseball and especially spending time with his grandchildren.
