Jesse Ray Perryman
April 2, 1941 - September 3, 2015
Jesse Ray Perryman died Thursday September 3 at his home in Middleton. He was born in Tolleson AZ to Johnie and Lillian Perryman. His early childhood was spent traveling with his family from Arizona, California and Idaho following the crops. In 1953 they came back to Idaho settling in the Notus area and later moved to the Eagle/Star area. Jesse spent his time going to school, playing football and working for local farmers. He could also be found down at the river fishing whenever he could.
After school, Jesse served 8 years in the Army, stationed in Germany for 3 years and Panama for 2. He ended his military career as Assistant Platoon Sargent stationed at Ft. Ord, California. After leaving the military, Jesse stayed in Southern California working in construction as a drywall hanger and high steel framer. He worked on various jobs in both Northern and Southern California. With the downturn in housing construction, Jesse started his last career as a long haul truck driver. This brought him back home to Idaho in 1992. He retired off the road in 1996. Jesse loved to hunt and fish with family and friends as well as watching the grandkids' various sports activities.
Jesse was preceded in death by his parents, sister Willine, brother Eddie and granddaughter Lillianne Jones.
