I remember him driving a tractor or walking either going to Kemp’s to work or to Richwood. My Mom and Dad would give him a ride every so often. Really nice guy.

To Perry's Family, I am sorry for your loss.  Perry was a constant figure in Somerville and York Center while I was growing up.  There was not a day that went by that I didn't see Perry on his tractor. Again, sorry for your loss.
