Vincent Kipling Perry, 53, of Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, died Friday, December 15, 2017. His memorial service will be held on Tuesday, December 19, 2017, in J. HENRY STUHR, INC., MOUNT PLEASANT CHAPEL, 1494 Mathis Ferry Road, at 12:00 noon. The family will receive visitors in the chapel at 11:00 a.m. until time of service.
Kip worked with Wells Roofing Sheet Metal for over 30 years where his work ethic and his loyalty to his co-workers made Kip's life richer as well as his work more fulfilling. He was proud to be a native of Mt. Pleasant where he lived his entire life. Everyone at Wells Roofing and Kip's family and friends will always remember Kip with love.
He is survived by his daughter, Rachel K. Perry, 23, who attends Winthrop University in Rock Hill, SC and her mother, Rhea Easler Perry of Mount Pleasant, SC; his mother, Kay W. Perry (Joe Cercopely) of Charleston, SC; two sisters, Janet Perry and Spring Williams, both of Summerville, SC; two brothers, Wells Perry of Charleston, SC, Oliver Perry of Mt. Pleasant, SC. He was preceded in death by his father, Jan Sudowski.
Kip had many interests and passions. He loved the art of his job, and was a true artist and craftsman, as one can see from his beautiful cooper roofs throughout the city of Charleston and the Lowcountry. Kip was a keen history buff and he studied the Civil War including attending reenactments at Boone Hall Plantation. Kip enjoyed the wonderful ocean views from Kiawah rooftops and often sent pictures to his daughter Rachel. Kip was a caring person and enjoyed being with his family and friends, especially Joe and Paula Wells who were both friends and family to Kip.
