Obituary for Danny Perry

Danny Curtis Perry was born December 22, 1948 in Orange, NJ to the late Genevieve Lopes and Chester Perry. Danny departed this life on Saturday April 25, 2020.

Danny grew up and lived in Orange, NJ for most of his life. He attended Orange Public Schools: Oakwood Avenue School, Central School and Orange High School. Beginning at an early age he attended church, Sunday school and Youth Fellowship at St. John's Methodist Church, it was there he was Baptized in the Holy Ghost.

Danny was Genevieve's only son but that did not make him an only child. He was raised alongside his 11 aunts and uncles that he considered his brothers and sisters. He shared a close bond with his family at 265 Hickory Street known as "Mama's House".

In his early 20's he met and married Barbara Yahn. Danny and Barbara were quite the fashion couple. Sporting platform shoes, hats, and always well dressed as they went out on the town.
Soon through their union they had 3 children: Tiffany, Chaz and Keenan Perry. Danny's love for his children and family was evident.

Danny worked in management, and security. He once owned a restaurant where he employed some of his cousins with their first jobs.

Danny LOVED to dance and was known as the dancer of the family. He took dance classes from an early age. He enjoyed cooking, music and watching movies. He was the master of the Yo-Yo with moves "walking the dog" and "rock the baby". He collected model cars and hats of all kind. He loved to dress and always looked "Sharp as a Tack". He was family oriented enjoying holidays and weekends at Mama's house or at his daughter's house.

19 years ago he developed no greater love than his granddaughters Dajia and Miya that he affectionately called "The Girls". They were the apple of his eye, his true loves and frankly his world. He was so proud to be their Pop-Pop.

Danny was saved and gave his life to the Lord. We know His Lord and Personal Savior Jesus Christ took him home to be with him.

Danny leaves to mourn his passing his loving children: Tiffany (Pierre), Chaz, Keenan (Samantha) Grandchildren: Pierre Jr, Dajia, Alexis, Miya and Elia. Sister Camille Lopes, Daughter Talmashia Warren, God Daughter Rashon Brennan His special love and fiancee Toria Bacon along with a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, family and friends.

He was preceeded by his mother Genevieve Lopes and grandson Ethan Dale Perry.

In light of this pandemic, the family will be holding a Memorial Service in the near future when we all can gather safely to celebrate Danny's exceptional life together.
