PRICE - Our loving father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother and friend, Perry L. Fry, 87, passed away January 21, 2014 at Utah Valley Regional Medical Center in Provo after complications from a fall.

He was born October 27, 1926 in Bartlett, Kansas to Harrison and Bessie Wolfe Fry.

Married the love of his life, Dorothy "Dot" Coggins on June 27, 1958 in Elko, Nevada. Shortly thereafter, they built their home in Carbon County where they raised four wonderful children. Perry and Dot celebrated 54 years of constant companionship prior to her passing on July 19, 2013.

Perry honorably served his country in the U.S. Army. After returning from the service, he began a career in mining. Perry worked 20 years at Columbia and 16 years at Horse Canyon, where he was always assisting his fellow co-workers and their families. He was a dedicated member of the United Mine Workers of America, Kaiser Steel Local # 9958. Although his years of labor have come to an end, he leaves behind a legacy that will be cherished for generations.

Perry loved assisting others and his acts of kindness will never be forgotten. The highlight of his day, was attending the Senior Citizen Center. Perry loved to visit and he always greeted everyone with a warm hand shake or a big wave as everyone drove past his home.
