I just learned today ... June 9th, 2022 , that Don had passed away on May 11, 2022. I had a long history with Don ... first as his legal counsel for many years ... and then opposite to him when he purchased Dixie Box & Crating Company from another client of mine. Throughout all of our dealings, Don and I always remained friends personally. I knew his health had begun to fail, but he always had a great attitude. Don was a resilient businessman, and he had a never give up attitude. I will personally miss Don greatly, and wish all of his family members my deepest condolences on his passing. Tom Snyder

Dear family of Don Perry, It is with great sorrow and sympathy that I write to you about the loss of Don. We met 62 years ago when I entered Randolph-Macon College as a freshman from Baltimore. I lived in the motel dorms and Don was one of my earliest friends. After College we worked together on the R-MC Board and many committees. He led me and many other Trustees as well as members of the administration with his enthusiastic support for so many projects. Don and I also co-invested in a few things and he was always a welcome and knowledgeable partner. Don was a wonderful human being and your loss is a loss to all of us who knew and loved Don Perry. With sincere sympathy, Ben Schapiro
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I was privileged to know Don for many years, starting in Mooreland Farms in Richmond. We both then started to get to know each other when Ladell Payne, President of Randolph-Macon formed the Board of Associates. As Presidents of that Board we both then became members of the Board of Trustees. What can I say but that Don was a great man to know! He gave a lot to RMC. Sincerely, Ralph Crosby
