    I am both shocked and saddened by my classmates passing. I pray for the loved ones that Perry has left behind. He was always such a nice guy. He will certainly be missed. I want Perry’s mother to know that if there’s anything that I or the Sheriffs Office can do in this time of need to please contact me. Again I am so sorry for the family and The Class of 82′s loss.

  • Barry Grimes:

    Although I only had the pleasure of working with him, I considered Perry a good friend. A few years ago, we “hit it off” instantly and have been buddies ever since. I always enjoyed his service calls because it would allow us to get caught up with the events one another’s lives. He was like the younger brother I never had. The news of his passing is indeed very difficult. I will truly miss him.

    My sincerest thoughts and prayers go out to family and friends.

    Rest in peace, Perry.

  • Robert Mafara:

    I can’t believe it was your time to go. Your body may not be here, but your soul will always be with me. We had a lot of fun working and hanging out together. Every time a “hottie” walks by I know you will be checking her out! You’re in good hands now and will never be alone. My deepest sympathy goes to your mom and family, I loved him like a brother and miss him greatly. One day we shall meet up again and cause trouble (fun trouble) in heaven. Love you bro, rest in peace

    I am at lost of words and shocked to hear of Perry’s passing. I had to sit down as I suddenly had to gasp for air. I would always asked about him. My classmate. Charles Coulbourne (RIP), Perry and I had good times at CHS. I could not have asked for better friends. There was never a dull moment and I cherish the times we shared as participants of the great class of “1982”.
    RIP: In paradise, Perry (P.J) pretty eyes, until we meet again!!! Love ya! (Tears)

  • Fin Rogers:

    I first met Perry when he moved to Las Vegas. We hit it off right away. He was always full of fun. We also worked together at multiple jobsites mostly for different contractors. We finally were reunited working together at SAFE Electronics, still the same old Perry, so fun to be around quick with a comment. I am so saddened at the loss of Our Brother. I want His Family and friends to know that Perry was Loved by us all. My life has been touched and made a better place for knowing Him. He is and always will remain in My heart. I miss My friend and hope to see Him again someday.

    My thoughts and heart is with the Horsey Family . May God send comforting Angels in your time of need as we mourn the lost of a great man, Son, Brother, Uncle and Friend.

    My heart is heavy hearing of Perrys’ passing. He was my classmate and good friend. I remember the times we shared You, Charles Coulbourne and myself , especially in room 110.

    I will always remember your smile and laugh as we sat in the lunchroom and bugged. You will Sadly be missed by many and I shall always remember you P.J. I can not believe that you are gone and we did not get to say our goodbyes.

    Rest in Paradise Perry!!
