Charles R. “Chuck” Perry June 10, 1968 - March 17, 2024

Charles R. “Chuck” Perry, 55, of Allentown, passed away peacefully at home on Sunday, March 17, 2024. He was the husband of Catherine L. “Cathy” (Klotz) Perry. They celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary in February 2024. Born in Allentown, he was a son of the late Marilyn A. (Mayer) and David P. Perry, Sr. Chuck was a graduate of Parkland High School and Lehigh County Vocational Technical School. He was a machinist for Lynar Corporation for many years. Chuck was a larger-than-life character who always let you know where he stood, but beneath that tough exterior was a gentle caring soul who loved his family with all his heart. His comical and witty nature always made him the life of the party. His love for his wife and children was so strong and that included his four puppies who were by his side every day. Chuck would discuss politics for hours with anyone that would listen. He loved sports, gardening, setting up beautiful aquariums and sitting quietly in the living room by the fireplace. He loved watching his children play sports, eating Jenae’s delicious baked goods and being Colton’s biggest cheerleader as he raced at Grandview Speedway. Chuck made an impression on everyone he met. He was so loved!

Perry of Topton; Stepdaughters: Abigail, Nicolle and Melissa Balliet; Grandchildren: Owen, Nessa, Brayden; Siblings: Patricia Remaly, David Perry, Jr. (Susanna Ruiz), Suzanne Miller (Allen Oliver), Lisa Perry.
