He was born March 7, 1934, in Farmington, Arkansas to Claude Hartful Perryman and Mary Catherine (Smith) Perryman. Their family moved from Farmington to California in 1938 then to Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1939.
Fred graduated from Will Rogers High School in 1952. On September 20th, of that same year, he married the love of his life, Beatrice Ann Stallings. They were married almost 46 years until her death on March 16, 1998.
Fred served in the Army and was stationed in Germany during the Korean War. After his return, he worked for Wonder Bread, Century Electronics, hung wall paper, and was a Tulsa Firefighter for 20 years. In later years, he drove a bus for Travel Tours. He was accompanied on many of his trips by his good friend and companion, LaRaye Damme. They enjoyed traveling together and spending time in each other's company.
The most important decision of Fred's life was when he accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior.

He loved helping pass out food from the food truck each week last summer.
