"Bob Perry's 30 year old son passed away on April 2nd, 2011 and the family and friends of Spike Perry have been devastated. There has been an outpouring of condolences for the family from around the world.
To quote Bob, "...Spike was one of those you didn't need to tell what to do. He had grown up sailing from day one and he always knew what to do."
The sailing community has come together to establish a fund in Spike Perry's name at the Seattle Maritime Academy where Spike was a student in the years 2003 and 2004. The fund will provide scholarship money in honor of Spike and the Perry family, helping deserving kids from the Perry's hometown waters learn more about sailing, seamanship and the region's rich maritime traditions
