Carl M. Perry SOUTH CARROLLTON -- We celebrate the life of Carl M. Perry, born on April
1, 1940, in Bevier to Marvin Perry and Essie Legrand Perry and christened Mickey, by his little
sister, Mary Lou. Mickey was born with sawdust in his blood. He began working with his father
cutting cupboards for the mines when he was a small boy. By the time he was 16 he was working at
U&W Pallet, owned by his brother, Marvin Perry Jr., but in his first job outside the
lumber industry, running a milk route for Holland Dairy from 1960 to 1964, he claimed he acquired
his business acumen, recording sales and accounting for inventory and cash. In 1964, Mickey, his
brother, George Perry and father-in-law, J.D. Webb, formed Associated Pallet Inc., with $100 and
five employees at Five Spot. In 1974, Mickey formed Kwick Kut Machine Inc. to build sawmill and
pallet mill equipment. In 1975, Mickey moved the pallet mill to Bremen and added a sawmill to the
company's manufacturing process. In 1979, he added a fleet of trucks to haul pallets to
Chicago. It was 1984 that marked the expansion of the company into the mine timber business with
the purchase of Matney Lumber Co. and additionally with his son, Mike Perry, its expansion into
the grade lumber market. Dry kiln operations were added in 1987, which led to Associated Pallet
Inc. becoming the first pallet manufacturer in Kentucky to be ALSC certified. In its tenure,
Associated Pallet has received several quality and service awards from its customers. At Five
Spot, employees were able to build three loads of pallets a week with hatchets. At its
present-day location in South Carrollton, Associated is capable of building 40 loads of pallets
per week. In 1991, Mickey started building his labor of love and what he often referred to as his
monument, Royal Cypress Golf Course. The nine-hole course, located on the McLean
County/Muhlenberg County line, opened in May 1992. A second nine holes were added in 1997.
Beautiful Royal Cypress is the host to the annual Kentucky Forest Industries Association Regional
Golf Outing each April. By 2009, Mickey's pallet mill had become a family of companies,
including three sawmills, a trucking company, timber operations, a scragg mill, two log
concentration yards and a golf course. The work force of five had grown to more than 130
individuals, the $100 investment to $25 million in sales. When he learned of his illness he said,
The Lord has given me a good life. It's my desire to live and be of help to others, but
if he has no more for me to do, it is enough. Mickey was a man of strength, vision and
competitive spirit. He left us with that which he gave so many over the years: Opportunity ...
opportunity to grow, opportunity to learn and opportunity to succeed. Carl Perry Mickey is
survived by Janice Devine; three sons, Michael D. Perry and wife Geraldine, Kevin D. Perry and
wife Angie and Jason Devine and wife Kim; two grandchildren, Michelle Perry and David Perry; two
sisters, Mary Lou Robertson and husband Bobby Joe and Alice Coble and husband Bill; a brother,
Darrell Perry; and a number of beloved nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his
daughter, Darlene Perry; and two brothers, Marvin Perry Jr. and George Perry; and three sisters,
Elnora Rickard, Virginia M. Perry, and Rosie Nell Perry. Carl Perry died Jan. 27, 2009, at
University of Cincinnati Mayfield Clinic. Services are at 10 a.m. Thursday at Tucker Funeral Home
in Central City. Visitation is from 5 to 9 p.m. Wednesday. Burial will follow in Rose Hill
Cemetery.
