Frank Albert Perry

It is with great sadness that the family of Frank Albert Perry announce his passing on August 20, 2020, at the Saint John Regional Hospital with his family by his side.

Born in Saint John, NB, on April 20, 1932, he was a son of the late Albert and Helena (Lena Gogan) Perry.


Frank enjoyed a thirty-year career with the Royal Canadian Air Force. He loved to write songs and play his guitar and harmonica. In his younger days, he enjoyed playing hockey which he learned to play on the “Bay” at Perch Rock and the Upper Pond. He was an avid outdoorsman and loved to fish, hunt, and play golf. He will be missed by all who knew him.


Frank will be lovingly remembered by his children, Wayne Perry (Judy) of Saint John, Cynthia Perry of Saint John, and Anthony Perry (Anton) of ON; mother of his children, Doris Perry of ON; grandchildren, Steven (Aimee), Nicole (Rob), Starr (Matt) Storm, Matthew, and Tanner; great-grandchildren, Austin, Gavin, Sylvie, and Rachel, aunt, Laurette Gogan; and Franks oldest and dearest friend Shirley Miller.


In addition to his parents, Frank was predeceased by his daughter, Lori (John) and uncle/brother, Albert Gogan.


Franks's family would like to thank Saint John Extra Mural, the staff of 3CS, Father Owen Burns, and Father David Martin for all their care and compassion shown to Frank. Your kindness will never be forgotten.
