VanSickle, age 62 of Farwell, passed away unexpectedly at home on Friday, December 24, 2021.  Perry worked hard his entire life with the majority of his career being a laborer and Assistant Chief on the pipeline.  On the off season he enjoyed plowing snow, smoking fish with his secret recipe, making his famous homemade apple pie moonshine, or just hanging out with friends and family in his garage “Perry and Lisa’s Party Palace”.
