Funeral Recording

Duane Ray Perry, 76, passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on November 12, 2019. Duane was born in Idaho Falls, Idaho to Dora Cazier and Henry Yates Perry on January 15, 1943. He graduated from Star Valley High School in 1961, then served a full-time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Eastern States mission. Upon returning, Duane attended Brigham Young University and earned a business degree, and then received an MBA from the University of Utah. He married Kenna Astle on Aug. 31, 1967 in the Salt Lake temple and recently celebrated their 52nd anniversary. Together they raised 3 wonderful children. He leaves as his legacy: Tawnya Albertson (Charles), Jeffrey Duane Perry (Kristin), and Stephanie Smith. He also leaves to cherish his memory 10 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren.

Duane loved the gospel of Jesus Christ and served faithfully in many capacities. He was always looking for ways to serve others and share his testimony. One of his favorite times serving was working with those with special needs. Duane loved spending time with his family and friends and especially cheering for his BYU Cougars. For 21 years he was a rodeo clown and rarely missed an opportunity to share his sense of humor. Happy trails. Until we meet again. We love you dad!
