Harold ‘Kenny’ Perry

Harold ‘Kenny’ Perry

We lost an incomparable, extraordinary, one-of-a-kind person Saturday, Jan. 22, 2022. 

Harold “Kenny” Perry was born on Dec. 2, 1951, to parents who also had disabilities.  

To say Kenny’s upbringing was difficult would be an understatement. He was raised in a shack by the railroad tracks back in the ‘50’s.  

Many years Kenny was thought of by many people as a drifter or vagabond, but when he came to Chamness Care, that was not the Kenny we knew.  

For 19 years, Kenny lived at Ash House in Cobden. He had the funniest quirks and most witty personality. If you knew Kenny, you will chuckle with some great story or remark he made when he comes to mind. 

Since Kenny had no known kin, we send love and support to his house mates Mark, Rickey, Jimmy, Cliff and Bryan, who are considered his family.  Special staff Jeremiah and Don have overseen Kenny’s care for years and were loved by Kenny.  Also, Kenny’s longtime girlfriend, Nancy J, is so upset at his passing. We are so sorry for her loss. We appreciate the life the staff at Ash House helped build for Kenny and the special TLC that ICARE provided in Kenny’s last days.

Memorial services for Kenny Perry will be held at 10 a.m. Friday, Jan. 28, at Rendleman & Hileman Funeral Home in Jonesboro.
