Mr. Perry was born in the town of Otego, May 7, 1908, and spent most of his life in or near Oneonta. He was married three years ago to Miss Bernice Daugherty of North Sanford, and they took up their residence in that village. About one month ago they moved to Harpursville, where he went to work on state highway route number seven. It was while he was employed on this job that the fatal accident occurred. During his residence in Oneonta he worked for the D. & H. railroad, and also as a truck driver. He had likewise had some experience in farming.
His death occurred six weeks and four days after his sister, Mrs. Nellie Bouton, wife of Arthur Bouton of this city, was killed in an automobile accident on the Mill Creek road.
Mrs. Perry and their two-year-old son, Leal, survive him, as does his mother, Mrs. Armenia Perry, of Mill Creek. There are also nine brothers and sisters: Josiah Perry, Mill Creek; Mrs. Glenn Ferguson, Oneonta; Mrs. William West, Binghamton; Raymond and Squire Perry, Oneonta, John and Clayton Perry, Mill Creek; Mrs. Harper Richardson, Oneonta, and Miss Rose Perry, Binghamton.
