Frank Pete Perich, 72, of Spring Lake, NC, passed away in his residence on Wednesday, April 13, 2022.\n\nHe is preceded in death by his parents, Peter Perich and Katherine Bohem; and a sister, Doretta Mazzeo.\n\nFrank served two tours of duty in Vietnam and was a recipient of the Purple Heart. He had a sarcastic personality and, if he didn't give you a difficult time, then he didn't like you. Under his gruff exterior really was a huge heart.\n\nFrank loved to travel and enjoyed day trips. He was extremely proud of his children and grand-children and loved them dearly. In his spare time he enjoyed gambling.\n\nHe is survived by his wife of thirty-two years, Brenda Carter Perich; step-children, Marlena (Roberto) Martinez; and J.J. Griffin (Kim); grandchildren, Kameryn Griffin and Hailey Mackey; extended family and friends; and his furry friend, his dog, Walter, and Spur, a stray who came and went, but mostly stayed at Frank and Brenda's home.\n\nFuneral services will be held on Saturday, April 30, 2022, at 12:00 PM in the chapel of Adcock Funeral Home in Spring Lake, NC with Pastor Tony Soignoli officiating.\n\nIn lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to The Dream Center, 336 Ray Avenue, Fayetteville, NC 28301, a charitable organization for the homeless supported by Manna Church.
