Perry was born in Swift Current, Saskatchewan on March 2, 1965 to Glen and Jean Graham. He graduated Frank Maddock High School in 1982 and soon after he started his lifelong career working in the oil patch. Perry was an avid skier, he enjoyed hiking and backpacking in the Rockies and was an amateur mandolin player… JUST KIDDING!

Everyone that knew Perry, considered him a great friend and enjoyed spending time with him.
