Michael Perry

BUTLER- Michael Perry, 51, of Butler passed away Friday May 29, 2015 in the Cleveland Clinic following a courageous battle with cancer.

The son of Henry and Betty (Oswalt) Perry, Michael was born March 1, 1964 in Mansfield.

A 1982 graduate of Clear Fork High School, Mike installed drywall for Quest Construction and recently drove as a truck driver.

Outspoken, Mike certainly was not bashful. He was the kind of guy who would tease and joke just for a reaction. He loved working with his hands and was very creative. He enjoyed farming, fishing, mushroom hunting and hunting deer. He was a passionate Ohio State Buckeyes fan and Chicago Bears fan. Mike was a past volunteer for the Worthington Township Fire Department.

He is survived by his children Cody Perry of Butler, Heath Perry of Danville and Heidi (Luke) Flynn of North Liberty; granddaughter Harper Jean Flynn; mother Betty Perry of Butler; brother Ira (Peggy) Perry of Butler; niece Angela Perry; great nephew Sebastian Perry; aunts Beverly (Donald) Smith and Rosemary Hall; special cousin Alan Meeks; and his one and only terrier-beagle mix, Daisy.

He was preceded in death by his father Henry Perry and brother Ricky Perry.

The family will receive friends Monday, June 1, 2015 from 5-7 p.m. in the Bellville Snyder Funeral Home where funeral services will be held Tuesday at 11 a.m. Burial will follow in Bunkerhill Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to: Snyder Funeral Homes, to assist the Perry family with funeral expenses.
