Lover of family and dogs! I don't think there can be a better testament to a person than sharing those two passions. "Papa" Perez you will be greatly missed and very fondly remembered by all those who had the privilege of knowing you. Your devotion to your family and all of your furry babies, in addition to, your mad baking skills will leave a void that can't be filled. Hugs and love to the entire Perez family during this time.

Kelly, Mike, and Bailey
