Johnny Perry Memorial Fund

Fund Type: Memorial Donations

Newport News, VA

Fundraiser ends on February 26, 2020

My big brother, John, passed away suddenly due to complications from a brief illness and we need assistance for his cremation and family travel expenses.

My big brother, John Perry, was always our great protector growing up. People often referred to John as a “Gentle Giant” who told the best stories in the world. Several years ago John nearly died from a flesh-eating bacteria. His survival was a miracle to us and we felt so blessed to have him for a few more years. Unfortunately, he recently had a routine UTI and was placed on antibiotics. However, his immune system was compromised from his year-long battle from his previous illness. John has one son, Justin, who stayed with John and was his primary caregiver. Our family is asking for your support to help cover cremation and family costs associated with travel to be together. Any funds not used for these purposes will be donated to the Appalachian Service Project in John’s name. ASP was instrumental in providing John with a home that was safe, dry and warm. John passed away in his home, which what he wanted. Thank you for any help you can provide.
