Timothy Brian "Spanky" Perry

May 28, 1974 — March 14, 2024


Timothy Brian "Spanky" Perry, Sr. was born on May 28, 1974 in Jackson, TN. He passed away on March 14, 2024 due to a cardiac event while traveling to work. Brian was 49 years old. 

Brian is survived by his loving partner, Cynthia Vaughn; son, Timothy Perry Jr.; sister, Amy (Tom) Perry and three brothers, David (Jen) Perry; Michael Perry; Asa (Audra) Perry; father, Richard Perry; five bonus children, Samantha(Chancey) Brewer; Riana Halsey; Rickey(Allison) Norfolk; Matthew(Jamaica) Uselton; Nathanial(Dania) Blackwell; 16 bonus grandchildren and many loyal friends and extended family members. Brian was preceded in death by daughter, Lexie Perry; mother Marcella Elaine Wilson; and grandparents Ervin and Alice Perry. 

Brian grew up in Jackson, TN and attended South Side High School. He spent most of his life driving commercial trucks. Through the week, he spent his time working at Jackson Trailer Service. On the weekends, he spent his time working in the burnout box at Jackson Dragway. He truly loved his time at the track and his racing family. He also loved spending time with his family and especially loved spending time with his grandchildren. 

To know Brian was to love him. He was affectionately called "Spanky" by those that loved him. He took great pride in being able to make those around him smile and laugh. If you cry at his service, he'll never "hug your neck" again. The family asks for those that knew him to celebrate his life by heading out to Jackson Dragway on a Friday or Saturday, order a cheeseburger, and have the time of your life. 

A celebration of life service will be planned for a later date.
