Passing of Perry Huyck

October 20, 2021

Dear Friends,

It is with a very heavy heart that we share with you the obituary announcement for Mr. Perry Huyck, long-serving former Executive Director at United Methodist Children’s Services and an all-around wonderful human being who was a beloved friend, mentor, colleague and inspirational leader to so many of us who make up the UMCS family. 

Many of you know Perry from his distinguished tenure as UMCS’s Executive Director, but you may not know that for the past two years he was a regular presence around here volunteering his time and talents each and every week. Whether he was fixing a bathroom sink, helping in the food pantry, chatting with residents or sharing some of his wise counsel with staff members, Perry always did it with grace, humility and genuine care and concern for others. Things were just simply better when he was around, and he will be terribly missed by all of us here at UMCS.
