Edward Leroy Perry, also known as Ed Perry, a graduate of Tippecanoe High School in 1953, passed away on May 1, 2023, in St Petersburg, Florida, at the age of 87. Ed was born on September 22, 1935, in Murlin Heights, Ohio, to the late Cecil Perry and Ruth (Tygrett) Perry. He is survived by his wife, Shelby Jean Perry, of 68 years, and three children: Keith E Perry, of St Pete, FL; Michael A Perry and his wife, Cathy, of Tipp City, OH; and Lori A (Perry) Braccio, and her husband, Joseph Braccio, of St Pete, FL.

Ed served in the US Air Force between 1953 to 1956, as a radar instructor, at the Kessler Air Force Base, in Biloxi, MS, and at Tyndall Air Force Base, in Panama City, FL. After serving our country, Ed owned his own floor covering business in Tipp City, OH, and worked many years in the flooring industry for residential and commercial services. One of Ed’s favorite verses also is a picture of Ed’s life: John 13:34, A new commandment I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. Ed faithfully lived out this verse by loving God and others. He served by teaching and singing with Shelby in nursing homes and taught others of the eternal love of our Lord.

John 14:27-Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

John 14:6-I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

Services will be held Saturday, May 27th, 2023 at 11:00 AM at Vandalia Baptist Temple- 724 Helke Rd, Vandalia, OH 45377.
