WAKE FOREST — Berry Douglas Perry, 78, passed away on Friday, Jan. 22, 2021, at Wake Medical Center.

He was born in Franklin County, the son of the late Luvenia Tilley Perry and Arthur Edward Perry. In addition to his parents, he was also preceded in death by brothers and sisters Linwood Perry, Samuel Perry, Albert Perry, Margaret Jordan and Claude Perry.

Mr. Perry was a loving husband, father, grandfather, father-in-law and friend. A hardworking, honest, dedicated man with a kind and gentle soul. So very generous with his time and love. An excellent golfer and a strong competitor, he loved competing, but loved winning even more.

Clever, curious, intelligent and nothing the man couldn’t fix. Lover and fan of classic country and “doo-wop” music, a huge sports fan and he loved his Tar Heels.

A funeral service was held at 1 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 27, at Pine Forest Memorial Gardens with the Rev. Joey Chafton officiating.

Mr. Perry is survived by his wife, Faye D. Perry; sons, Dennis Perry (Deborah) and Stephen Perry (Julia); grandchildren, Justin Perry, Trent Perry, Logan Perry and Kendall Perry; brothers and sisters Louise Spencer (Earnest), Linda Preddy and Marvin Perry (Jeanette); and several nieces and nephews.

Cecil Alexander truly an honor and privilege in taking you under my wing, you are a third son my friend, Larry Averette, a very special friend and like a brother.
