Jacob Harold Perry, of Miami, Okla., died Saturday, March 23, 2013, from injuries sustained in a car accident in Fort Scott, Kan. He was 31.
Jake, as everyone knew him, was the son of Michael Joe Perry Sr. and Betty Mae (Yazzie) Perry. He was born on June 10, 1981. Both parents preceded him in death.

He was a member of the Seneca-Cayuga Tribe, Chickasaw and Navajo Nations. He was a carpenter and mechanic, like his father and grandfather before him.
Jake had a heart and smile as big as he was. He deeply loved his family and friends and most of all his wif,e Sequoyah.

Although his family is greatly saddened by his loss, they take comfort in knowing he is with the Creator and surrounded by those he loved that have gone on before him.
