We lost a monumental figure with the passing of George "Judd" Perry. His untiring committment to Point Lobos was just one of many unselfish charitable endeavours Judd involved himself with here in the Monterey area. The list of his accomplishments would be too long to list here, however, his most recent endeavors have been as Point Lobos Docent Administrator, Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History Secretary and board member and Past President of the Point Lobos Foundation board of directors, where his generosity and jovial personality has strenghten each organization that was fortunate to have his input. He loved his "Docent Corps."
On Wednesday he attended the PL board meeting. His wife Sharon related this to Augie Louis. "He woke up Thursday morning with abdominal pain and we went to CHOMP Emergency in the afternoon. After much testing, it was determined that he was bleeding internally from the liver/colon area. The testing continued as his kidneys shut down and he was in a lot of pain. By morning, it was clear to everyone that to continue treatment would only prolong the agony and the most important thing was to keep him comfortable. He passed at 9:30 PM Saturday April 18. One of the last things he said to me was that he has had a very rewarding life. I know that an important part has been his association with all the amazing people involved at Pt. Lobos. Thank you for that. At Judd's request, there will be no memorial service."
He will be greatly missed. Our prayers are with Sharon and his family.
