Perry of Chambersburg, Pennsylvania and Glenn Perry, Jr. of Parkers Lake, Kentucky;
sisters, Ellen Goodin of Parkers Lake, Kentucky; Sue Smith of Parkers Lake, Kentucky;

grandchildren -- grandchildren Jim Horn, Jr., Melissa Kanozek, Catherine Horn, Gregory
Horn, Jerred Ross, Jessica Steele, Olivia Perry, Amanda Williams, Jacob Perry, Jodi
Howard, Tyler Howard, Natalie Noble, Noelle Noble, Shyanne Everman; and his 14
great grandchildren.
