Ed Perry: Obituary

Ed Perry, 92 years of age, a resident of Cannonwood Village in Tiger, GA, passed away of natural causes on November 29, 2019.  He was preceded in death by his wife, Beverly Lindsey Cannon Perry, his parents, Edwin and Grace Perry, a son, Timothy Perry, and a step-son, Cole Cannon. Ed attended Elkins College in Elkins, West Virginia, and worked for Columbia Gas Company until his retirement in the late 1980s.  After his retirement, Ed came to Clayton to visit his life-long best friend, Paul Lutz.
Paul introduced Ed to his neighbor, Beverly Cannon, and they were married on April 15, 1990, at the Clayton Methodist Church.

Ed immediately became an integral part of Beverly’s family, and her friends accepted him as one of their own.  He quickly fell in love with Clayton and was very involved in the community.  In addition, he loved “Cannon Country” on Lake Burton, and boaters would see Ed and Bev chauffeuring friends around the lake on their pontoon boat.

Ed will be remembered as a happy fellow with a lively sense of humor.  Many of his jokes will be remembered and repeated for years.  He was a man who loved everyone and always had a kind word for/about everyone.

Ed is survived by his brother, John, his nephew, David, his step-children, Jolie Cannon (Anthony Laster), and Cass Cannon (Pamela),  granddaughter, Cassidy Cannon, grandsons, Kirk Donnell (Valerie), and Derek Donnell (Amber), and four great grandchildren.
