Donald Bird Perry Obituary
Donald Bird Perry
Donald Bird Perry, longtime cattle buyer and rancher, passed away July 3, 2017, at his Yuba City home.

He is survived by his wife, Carolyn, and by sons Kenneth Perry and his wife, Jan; and Jim Perry and his wife, Jenny; grandchildren Kate, Jill, Jamie, Monica, and Chad; great-grandchildren Paige, Quinn, and Nathan Glenn. Don is predeceased by his first wife, Geraldine, his son, Glenn, and his brother and sister-in-law, Wayne and Claudine Perry.

Don spent many years in the cattle business, working at times for the Willows Auction Yard, Marks Meat Company, Fat City Cattle Company, Bareback Cattle Company, and Simplot. He was a regular fixture at Orland Auction Yard's Thursday cattle sales and a longtime buyer at Shasta Livestock in Cottonwood. He was known for his big, friendly smile, and his penchant to make a deal.

As a member of the Clark Avenue ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Don enjoyed taking the visiting missionary students to experience ranch life and see the cattle. He also appreciated the church messages and personal assistance from his home teachers and other members of the LDS community.

Funeral services will be Tuesday, July 11, 2017 at 11 a.m. at the LDS Church at 520 Clark Avenue, Yuba City. Burial will be at Sierra View Cemetery, Marysville. A reception at the church will follow. All who knew Don are welcome.
