In Loving Memory of George William Perry
December 13, 1927 - December 15, 2023
A good man, a life well lived, George left this world a better place. He was predeceased by his wife Olive in 2007, his son Ron in 2004, and his granddaughter Marina Hamblin in 2017. George will forever live in the hearts and minds of his son Lindsay (Laurie) and his 3 daughters, Elaine (Larry), Judy (Larry), and Joy (Dennis). His grandchildren and great grandchildren: Keith (Brooke), Peyton and Kallum; Mark (Lonetta),Terren and Charlie; Darcy (Tara), Drew and Jordyn; Jill (Rob), Arianne, Olivia, and Sawyer; Sheena (Mark), Quinn and Hadley. Sisters-in-law Doreen (Larry) Bowen and Elva Lindal, along with numerous nieces, nephews, relatives and friends, including his many lifelong friends from his and Olive's winters in Arizona.
First and foremost for his entire life from boyhood until the day he died George was a true prairie farmer. His industrious, methodical and tenacious nature led him to become a leader and an accomplished entrepreneur. George, like his father Harvey, was a cattleman. Together they established Perryville Angus Farms. George continued in the cattle industry serving over 40 years on both the Canadian Angus Association and the Saskatchewan Angus Association boards, including sitting as president of each board. During that time he also became a director of the Canadian Western Agribition. Throughout this period these duties
took George and Olive from Great Britain to Australia to Brazil and numerous points in between. For a number of years George was co-owner of Punnichy/Raymore GM Motor Products. After moving from the farm into Wynyard he became co-owner of Demeter Perry Realty and went on to establish Realty World, Perry-Demeter Realty. Further, George enjoyed his many years as a crop and hail adjuster working for both Municipal Hail Insurance and Anchor Crop and Hail Adjusters Bureau. When George finally had time for hobbies, beginning in his mid 70s he enjoyed woodworking, gardening and watching sports. The Blue Jays were his all-round favorite team and for his 90th birthday he watched them play at Rogers Centre for the first time. Provincial and Canadian Curling Championships were a must see. He managed the Punnichy Blues senior hockey team in the 70s and later became an enthusiastic Wynyard Monarchs fan. Finally, yet very importantly, it can't be understated the joy George found in sharing in his grandchildren's and his great-grandchildren's accomplishments.
