Gregory Neil Perry, 74, of Verner, West Virginia passed away peacefully, surrounded by close family and loved ones, on Thursday April 14, 2022 at his residence.
Greg was born on January 19, 1948 in Welch, West Virginia to Opal and Juanita (Canterbury) Perry. He was a 1966 graduate of Gilbert High School. After graduation, he worked for the family business, O.M. Perry Sand Company. Afterwards, Greg became self-employed and worked in construction, trucking, and real estate.
