We Lost AGreatPer Last Year
Saturday, March 30, 2013 | Kristinn

Posted on 03/30/2013 4:28:57 PM PDT by kristinn

We lost AGreatPer last year. He passed away in August. He was 73.

His passing was missed as his wife, who would have notified FR, had preceded him in death.

He last posted in July, 2012.

AGreatPer was a D.C. Chapter stalwart who traveled from Pennsylvania numerous times to stand with us outside the Clinton White House, Cheney's House, troop support rallies, counter-demonstrations of anti-American leftists and our six-year-long Walter Reed vigil.

AGreatPer had a great personality, he was a pleasure to be around at a freep and at our after-freep lunches and dinners.


Trueblackman, BufordP and AGReatPer at Walter Reed, October 8, 2010.

Sorry to say I realized AGReatPer was missing when I called him about Doctor Raoul passing and cellphone was disconnected. I haven't in close touch with a lot of FReepers as I was in the past. I apologize for not noticing his absence. He deserved better for the time he spent with us.

NO! This can't be correct! We emailed not that long ago...maybe a couple of months ago!

He was with us protesting Clinton in Pittsburgh! He was always here.

I hope you are mistaken.

I am going back through my email now to see when we last communicated.

This is VERY saddening!

For any of us OLD FReepers does anyone know what his username stood for?

He was a a wonderful, patriotic warrior! He will be missed!

I spent some time speaking with him at a FR Rally for the Troopers back in 2002...a real gentleman and patriot.

I wondered why he had stopped posting. He and I pulled a two man Freep in Harrisburg, PA a while back. My first.

Thanks for letting us know.

RIP Friend.

The more I think about it the more I think he posted on the Quin And Rose Morning thread late last year. I have to ping sneakers - the thread host - to see if she remembers.

He told me he wanted it to read - “A Great Pervert Clinton” - and didn't realize he couldn't use that many letters until after he registered, and then he decided to just keep it to make people wonder what it meant.

The info in the obituary matches with his background and the timing of his abrupt stop in posting to FR.

He had a funny story about his screen name. He was trying for A Great Pervert in the White House (Clinton), but before he could type it out, somehow he hit the button, and it came out AGreatPer, and he stuck with it. This is sad news.

I did not realize Doctor Raul had passed. :-(

After arguing this weekend with mrs p6 about the definition of the word "marriage", pro-life and other topics, I feel it won't be long until I sail westward over the sea yo-ho!

She could care less about ANYTHING as long as she can play with her grand kids. So far with the exception of a great St Philips Fish Fry last night....this has been a less than happy Easter.

I mean Spring Bunny Thingie...

NO MORE!

HE IS RISEN!

I’m so sorry to hear this, Kristinn. I freeped with him several times in DC—both in front of the White House during the Clinton years, and was with him several times at WRMC.

He was “a great person.”

May his soul rest in eternal peace.

So sorry to hear this. I met him at a WH FReep when Clinton was still in office. I met you, AGreatPer, Dr. Roual, BMWCLE (?), Angelwood, Exit62 (or 142), Jimmy Valentine’s Brother, and so many others on a Sat. morning FReep. A Great Per brought his young son with him to FReep. He also brought him (in tuxedo) to the Inaugural Ball in 2001. I was an interesting and kind person. He helped me plan my trip through PA back to Wisconsin. Told me where NOT to stay, etc.

May he rest in peace and the Perpetual Light shine upon him.

Thanks for the phone call Kristinn. I am sorry to hear that you confirmed his passing.

I remember sitting with him during the rallies when I was in the wheelchair, or not walking much, a few years ago.

I miss so many of the old “names” on FR. It is nice to see them return to honor the FReepers from past events. I hope we do not continue to find this is the reason they are not posting!

Thank you for posting this, Kristinn.

I will always remember the humor and gentlemanly demeanor he brought to our Freeps here in the Philadelphia area. He loved America deeply, and had a keen sense of justice.

Once at a Clinton appearance in Philadelphia, there was a Mummer string band playing outside his venue. Dirtboy and I were doing the “Mummer’s strut” to the song “Oh, Them Golden Slippers”, when AGreatPer started singing “Oh, That Lyin’ Clinton”. We all started singing and hamming it up, to the point that even the leftist demonstrators on hand were laughing.

It shames me that he passed without my noticing for so long. I’m not around here much, anymore, but that’s no excuse. I am my brother’s keeper.

There are so very many oldtimers who are no longer posting, and i often wonder how many of them have passed away without us realizing it.

Rest in peace, AGreatPer(son).
