Jerseyville | Sunday, February 1 2015

Mark Alan Fry, 51, died suddenly at 9:15 p.m., Sunday, February 1, 2015 in the emergency room at Jersey Community Hospital in Jerseyville.

Mark was born in Jerseyville on Dec. 8, 1963, and was one of three children born to the late Jerry Duff & Colleen (Brenner) Fry.

He grew up in Jerseyville, and graduated with the Class of 1982 from Jersey Community High School.   He then furthered his education obtaining a BS in Business from Fontbonne University in St. Louis.

For many years he worked as a CAD designer for Emerson Electric in St. Louis, for the past three years has been employed with the Boeing Corp. as a F18 Program Manager.

Mark enjoyed the simpler things in life.  For him the perfect day would be sitting around the house with his wife and hanging out with his two boys.  He may have considered it simple, but Mark was blessed beyond compare.  He had a wife who loved him, and sons who cherished him.  His quick and dry wit were a hit at any social gathering, and he was admired by many.

He married the former Shelley K. Perdun on March 3, 1990 at the First Assembly of God in Jerseyville, and they soon would have celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary.

Surviving are his wife, Shelley Fry of Jerseyville; his two sons, Grant Alan Fry and Alec Charles Jerry Fry both at home; a sister, Melody Tonsor of Jerseyville; his mother in law, Charlene (Goheen) Morgan of Jerseyville; a brother in law & sister in law, Wayne & Victoria Perdun of Simpsonville, SC.; a sister in law and brother in law, Pamela & Michael Conrady of Lincoln; along with numerous nieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a brother, Jerry Hal Fry on March 12, 2005; his fathers in law, Dr. George Morgan & Wayne Perdun Sr.

Visitation will be from 2 to 8 p.m., Thursday at the Crawford Funeral Home in Jerseyville.

Funeral services will be conducted at 11 a.m., Friday at the First Assembly of God in Jerseyville with Revs. Larry Hayes & Carl Hayes officiating.

Burial will be in the Oak Grove Cemetery in Jerseyville.

In lieu of any flowers and plants, memorials would be appreciated to an educational fund for his sons and will be accepted at the funeral home.
