Obituary for Fletcher L. Perry

Fletcher Lee Perry, aka “Cootsie” by many and “Crazy Baby” by most.  He was better known as “Pa” by his grandchildren and the special name “Biggie” given to him by a devoted Shayquan Perry.
Fletcher confessed his love for the Lord at an early age and became a member of Manassa Hill Baptist Church.  In his later years he joined Promise Land Baptist Church where he was ordained as a Deacon.
He was born to the late Mr. and Mrs. Richard W Perry on September 26, 1942. He attended and graduated from Russell Grove High School in Amelia county VA.  He found a passion and dedication to his work at Sonoco Paper Product in Chester, VA where he worked for approximately thirty-six years and retired.  Just as he had a passion for his work, he had a greater love for farming.  He grew some of the largest fruits and vegetables in Amelia County and broke records for their sizes.  He had many other passions, another being sports and coaching.  Baseball was a favorite, he coached his sons, his nephews, cousins and many friends.  He  loved hunting and was a member of the Sweathouse Hunting Club. He enjoyed cards, and running Bostons, in his favorite game of Bid-Wist.
Fletcher’s greatest love of all was his wife of forty-eight years.  He married Jacqueline Robinson Perry in 1964 and from that union, they were blessed with two sons, Fletcher A. Perry and Richard G. Perry.
Fletcher was preceded in death by his parents Richard W. and Louise H. Perry, his brothers, Richard C. Perry “Chubby”, Edgar Perry and Joshua Perry, and his sisters, Asaline Davis, Helen Banks and Thelma Lawrence.
He leaves to cherish his fond memories:  wife, Jacqueline Perry; children, Fletcher A. Perry (Freda), Richard G. Perry (Tarsha) and Helena Fitzgerald; brothers, Benjamin Perry (Bettie), Byrdie Perry, Ernest Perry; fifteen grandchildren; two great grandchildren; and a host of  nieces, nephews, cousins, in-laws and friends.  A special thank you to Aysia Price that helped with his care in his times of need and a special thank you to Dixie Pig, L. D. Martin, Raymond Hawkes and Randolph Worsham who showed their dedication throughout.
