Kenneth “Tim” Perry

Kenneth “Tim” Perry, 74, of the Tenmile Community, left this world on Monday, June 27, 2022, at J.W. Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown.

He was born in Tenmile on September 4, 1947, a son of the late David M. Perry and Edna V. DeBarr.

In addition to his parents, Tim was preceded in death by, three sisters: Maxine Wamsley, Imogena Wilfong, and Ruth Copeland; and two brothers: Richard and Bobby Perry.

On May 21, 1977, Tim married the love of his life, Sheila Kay Dean. Together they shared the joys of marriage and raising their son for 45 wonderful years.

Forever cherishing their memories of Tim’s loving nature are his wife, Sheila Perry of Tallmansville; one son, Timothy “T.J.” Perry and wife, Kara, of Volga; two grandsons: J.T. Perry and Nate Perry; one granddaughter, Carrigan Perry; four brothers: Bill Perry of Buckhannon, Pete “Turk” Perry and wife, Carolyn, of Indian Camp, Arnett Perry and wife, Mary, of Tallmansville, and David Perry Jr. of Tenmile; one sister, Glenda Bosley and husband, David, of Tallmansville; and several nieces and nephews.

Tim was Methodist by faith and attended Tenmile United Methodist Church. He was previously employed with Freightliner Trucking, Sam Jack Drilling, Union Drilling, Island Creek Coal Company, and retired from West Virginia Wesleyan College with ten years in the maintenance department. Whether he was riding his Harley Davidson or taking walks in the woods, Tim loved every moment of being outdoors. More than anything else, Tim cherished his time with his grandchildren and he loved spoiling them.

Family and friends will gather for Visitation at Clutter Funeral and Cremation located at 21 Elnora Circle in Buckhannon from 5-7 p.m. on Friday, July 1, 2022. Funeral Services will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, July 2, 2022, in the Clutter Funeral Home Chapel with Reverend Brad Tenney officiating.
