Our condolences to the family of Judge Perry, our gentle warrior. Through his words and actions, he awakened the hearts and minds of many to act so that South Carolina and America would truly be a land of freedom for all Americans. His legacy will live forever, for it embraces all people.

Dear Perry Family,
My thoughts and prayers are with you as you mourn the loss of a truly wonderful human being! I am proud to have been touched by Judge Perry, both personally and professionally! In 1985, Judge Perry swore me in as a U.S. citizen during the naturalization ceremony. Nine years later in 1994, Judge Perry swore me in as a U.S. Probation Officer for the District of SC! I shall miss him! The world is indeed a better place because he was in it!

May the God of all comfort be with the entire Perry family during this difficult time.

To the Family of the late Matthew James Perry, Jr.: Our thoughts are of you today and may we never forget the work of this great man, friend, and alumnus. We will tell men, women, and children of all ages and of all backgrounds that there was a man who stood as giants but walked lowly with everyone. There was a kindhearted man who preferred freedom for all. And, may all people come to know that Judge Perry not only opened downs for African Americans but his labor opened doors for women and men of non-Anglo decent to attend the colleges and universities of South Carolina. Had it not been for Matthew, could we hope to see the diversity today in South Carolina’s government, schools, hospitals, restaurants, and so forth. God blessed us with Matthew. May we instill in our children a spirit that comes to know God in this way. Rest in peace.
