William “Bill” Stanton Perry, 85, passed away on Tuesday, April 12, 2022, at his home in Weiser, Idaho.
There will be no services held.
William “Bill” Stanton Perry was born on October 1, 1936 in Los Angeles, California to Robert “Bob” and Alice “Cleo” Perry. He is survived by his daughter, Roberta Wells; granddaughter, Ashley Horton; Grandson, Christopher Perry; Grandson, Mark Perry as well as his great grandchildren.
Bill lived in various areas of California throughout his life, raising his children, Jim and Roberta, in Shasta, Ca before moving to McCall, Idaho and then his final resting place in Weiser, Idaho. In 1955, Bill joined the United States Air Force and served for a short time before being medically discharged due to hearing issues caused by frequent childhood ear infections, therefore, caused him to be hard of hearing for many years. Bill helped his mother and father work a large farm for many years in Siskiyou County in Northern California, when his father opted Bill learned another trade to better his future and so they opened their own appliance repair and service shop. Bill was an entrepreneur and enjoyed working and running his appliance repair and service company for many years up until his retirement. He had a love for photography, which he and his father both shared a common interest in. He was a proud and dedicated member of The Grand Lodge of Idaho Ancient Free and Accepted Masons. He was an honorable man who worked hard, played harder and loved even harder.
Bill enjoyed good seafood, fishing, camping, snowmobiling, 4-wheeling, boating and traveling. He was a man who lived life to the fullest; those who knew him in his younger years would even say “crazy”, especially when it came to his love for speed when snowmobiling. He enjoyed traveling throughout the United States and even trips across seas to Africa and Spain. His passion was to be out on the water, casting a line waiting for the “big” one such as you would see from the 90s movie Grumpy Old Men. Bill's greatest passion of all was his family and friends. He will always be remembered for his kind, generous, funny, quick-witted comments and jokes that could stop you in your tracks with laughter. There was a presence about him that lit up any room he walked in. He had a personality that was boisterous, yet kind and humorous. Bill will be greatly missed, but never forgotten. His memory passes through us all who were blessed enough to have met him. Until we see you again!
