Arthur Joseph Perry, age 76, passed away on Friday, August 14, 2020, at his home in Nevis, MN.
Art was born on March 11, 1944, in Minneapolis MN to Artimus and Ellen (Phyllis)(Hogan) Perry. He grew up in north Minneapolis and attended St. Bridgette’s Catholic School. After high school, he joined the US Marine Corps and served two tours in Vietnam. On his return, Art attended North Hennepin Community College and earned a two-year degree in Business Management.
