Perry Funeral Home Vision

Perry Funeral Home will focus on being the premier provider of compassionate, efficient, and dignified services.

We will create meaningful funeral and memorialization experiences for the families we serve.



The late Orlando K. Perry had a vision of building his own funeral home. His vision was realized with the establishment of the elegant Perry Funeral Home.

Since 1958, Perry Funeral Home has faithfully served Newark and the surrounding communities. The Staff's kindness, compassion and professionalism have led families throughout the entire area to depend on Perry Funeral Home to help them through the difficult time of dealing with the death of a loved one.

Virginia Arnold Perry was born in Bassett, Virginia, on January 22, 1937 to Robert and Geneva Arnold.

Working hard became a way of life for Virginia at an early age. Her mother died at age 37 when Virginia was only 17, leaving a young family of nine children. Being the oldest of the family, she quickly accepted the responsibility of helping her father raise her brothers and sisters.




Samuel C. Arnold was born and raised in Bassett, Virginia, where he attended the Mary Hunter Elementary School and the George Washington Carver High School. He graduated Cum Laude from Virginia State University with a degree in Political Science.
