TWIN FALLS — Perrine (Perry) Dee Vaughn, born June 7th, 1960 to Kendall Vaughn Sr. and Margaret (Sue) E. Vaughn (Benkula) in Las Cruces, New Mexico passed away June 17, 2017 in Twin Falls, Idaho after a sudden illness. He spent most of his working years in Jackpot, Nevada where he was raised by a single mother with two brothers. Her hands were full! Perry started out working in the warehouse at Cactus Pete's. He eventually moved up to becoming a blackjack and craps dealer. Throughout his career at Cactus Pete's, Perry made the best friends a man could have, especially Cruz Godina. You can always count on Perry to brighten the mood and put a smile on your face. He couldn't go a day without teasing or joking with someone. That's what he did best.
Perry had two special women in his life. He met his first wife, Janet, and they had two beautiful girls, Amanda Sue Vaughn and Sarah Dawn Vaughn. Amanda and Sarah were the light of his life! He was very proud of both of you. Perry and Janet were later divorced.
Perry then married his current wife Christina Vaughn and that brought more beautiful children in to his life; Ashley and Jense Deelstra, Emily Harlan, and Sean Harlan Parker. They had been married for 5 years.
