November 29, 1929 - April 4, 2020
Roger Hugh Perry age 90, left this Earth at 6:40 am April 4, 2020. He must have had an early tee time in Heaven. Roger lost his heroic battle with multiple myeloma and subsequently Acute Leukaemia. Dad leaves to mourn his bride of 61 years, Jeannie (Tweedy), daughter Jennifer, son-in-law Jim Williams and favourite son Steven, daughter-in-law Michelle, grandchildren Sarah and Sami Williams, and Michael and Scott Perry. Also left to mourn are Roger's nieces, Dr. Adrienne Perry (Don Downer) and Monica Perry, brother-in-law Gordon Tweedy (Caroll), nephews David and John Tweedy, all of the Tweedy/MacKenzie clan, his West Keppoch family, and so many dear friends and neighbours. Roger was predeceased by his brother, Rev. Doug Perry and his sister-in-law Ruth Perry.
Roger was born at a very early age in St. Catherines, Ontario, November 29, 1929 to Gertrude and Major Richard Henry Perry.
Dad loved to have a good time, and he also loved a bargain. Tuesdays you could find him at Value Village. Wednesdays, golfing with his Wagot golf group. Thursdays with the Hillsborough Rotary Club. Fridays, luncheon with the boys. And as much time as possible with family and friends at his beloved cottage in West Keppoch.
Dad loved most sports, particularly: tennis, skiing, basketball, football, fishing and golf. He was proud of shooting his age (89) last summer at Fox Meadow. Roger was also very artistic and had many hobbies including: listening to Jazz music, pottery, ceramics, and of course painting.
The family greatly appreciates the loving care of the QEH Oncology department and the doctors and nurses of the Palliative Care Centre.
Resting at MacLean Funeral Home Swan Chapel. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, there will be no visitation or funeral at this time. A celebration of Roger’s life will be held this summer. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made online to the QEH Foundation (Cancer Treatment Centre) or Hospice PEI. Online condolences may be made at macleanfh.ca
“Until we meet again, Bye for now Rog, Bye for now!”
