Percy was born in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan May 8, 1955. When he was 10, Percy and family moved to Lethbridge, Alberta to pursue family priorities. Percy attended Galbraith Elementary, Wilson Junior High, and then Winston Churchill High School in which he graduated in 1973. Once high school was completed, Percy started working at Woolco Department store and with his hard work ethic, Percy was able to progress within the company moving to Edmonton, and then Calgary.
Percy then started with Woodward’s department store in which he had tremendous success and moved up rapidly within the company moving to many locations while starting his own family. In the later years of Percy’s life, he worked as the Warehouse Manager for 13 years with Leon’s Furniture in Lethbridge and finished off his career with Home Depot also in Lethbridge as the night receiving supervisor.
Percy was an avid sports fan and a lover of the outdoors especially if it meant spending time with his 2 sons. He particularly enjoyed camping and fishing in the summer with family. Percy was a friend and mentor to many, many people. He will be missed by all those he touched.
