GREER, S.C. (WYFF) - Travis Perry, the athletic director at Greer High School, has passed away.
Perry was originally diagnosed with cancer in 2018.
He had surgery in September and was declared disease free, however in December Perry found out his stage 4 bile duct cancer had returned.
He died Friday morning.
Perry was a three-year starting quarterback at Greer High School before going on to play at Newberry College.
Greer High School Principal Justin Ludley issued the following statement.
“I don’t know if there is anyone quite as loved and respected in our school, the community of Greer, and this state as Travis Perry. For many, many years, Travis has been an example for every one of us on how to love and treat others. His impact and influence on students, colleagues, and families is immeasurable, truly remarkable, and will live on forever. What I do know is that right now Travis is healed, strong, and smiling down upon us. No doubt he is back to being able to bench press over 300 pounds again.”
