Charles Frederick Perry

Charles "Bud" Perry left us too soon on April 13, 2009 at the age of 63 after a 2½ year battle with cancer. Born on July 3, 1945 in Butte, Montana, his family relocated to Tacoma, WA when he was a child. He graduated from Pacific Lutheran University and went on to have a successful career as a CPA in the Seattle/Bellevue area. He was well respected in the business community and was known for his honesty, integrity and high expectations from those around him. He loved fishing, flowers, cooking and making people laugh. He believed in having the best of everything. His "fishing buddies" were life-long friends and they will miss him greatly. He loved to show off his cooking skills either at home or on the campfire and his famous prime-rib will continue to be made in honor of him at the holidays. He was a loving and protective father to Cherise, Monique and Gabrielle, daughters of Colleen Perry. His greatest joy later in life was spending time with his grandson, William, and watching him grow into a young man. We love you and miss you Gramps! A private memorial service was held on April 17th. The family suggests donations to The Myasthenia Gravis Foundation of America at, as this is a condition suffered by his daughter and close to his heart.
