Perry Vernon THOMAS

March 25, 1948 – December 9, 2014

Perry was taken from us suddenly at the age of 66. He is survived by his loving wife of 35 years, Debra; children, Rhonda (Rod), Christina (Brandon), Eric (Shawna), and Melissa (Jeremy); grandchildren, Jerzie, Cruz, Jayce, and Reese; brothers, Alan (Tina) and Barry; sisters, Louise and Pat (Van); and many nieces, nephews, and friends.

Perry was lucky enough to work at one of his passions – driving truck. He enjoyed fishing, dragon boating, collecting model trains and airplanes, and travelling when he wasn’t in the truck.

The family’s heartfelt thanks goes out to everyone involved in the search for Perry. Words are inadequate to express our gratitude.

A Celebration of Life will be held in Perry’s

honour at 1:00 pm on Saturday, December 20, 2014 at Yates Funeral Chapel, 1000 Allsbrook Road in Parksville. A reception will follow.

In lieu of flowers, please consider honouring Perry’s memory by making a donation to a charity of your choice.
