Also, the Davis Siblings wish to thank Genda Funeral Home, 608 North Main Street, Frankfort, IN 46041 for assisting the family with arrangements.  Please visit or here at the Clinton County Daily News below where you may leave a message for the family under obituaries.

P.S.  The MLC-ACC is formerly Perry’s Grade School and Home of the Ganders.  As such, the day will be olden days low-tech “Show & Tell” so please bring paper photographs or photocopies so the items can be pinned to a tribute wall.  The MLC-ACC has a ‘Museum Room’ full of historical photographs and memorabilia, plus, we will be in the restored ‘Gymnasium’ dating from 1924. Oh yeah–you might want to bring along a magnifying glass too!!



  1. My sincerest condolences to Perry’s family members for their loss. I’ll always remember Perry as a fierce competitor in many front porch Euchre games on Columbia Street back in the ’80s. R.I.P. old friend .
