Born in Cessnock, Hanover Jamaica

DECEMBER 08, 1947

He was the 5th child out of seven born to Perceval and Irish Perry. Dad went to Kendall All Age School, and later went to trade school for shoe making. As a child he and his brothers were pranksters and always finding nicknames for others, so when around them you have to be on your P’s and Q’s if you didnt want to get a nickname.

“Remembering Uncle Henry”

We will remember you and your generous heart;

You always had thoughts to smooth others paths.

Never tired when you were called

Nor said that you were bothered

A rock and tower you always were,

With your generous heart.


I’ve never seen you without a smile;

With you, anger only lasted for a while.

It didn’t matter the occasion, 

Whether it be a time of bereavement or festivity,

You had a way with words that turned

Our frowns upside down.

Words that came from a generous heart


A loving husband, father, uncle, cousin and friend

You loved not only in words but in deeds

Your actions resounded: g

“I love you” 

“I appreciate every moment I spent with you”

We will always remember you

John Arthur Perry
