JAMES “RICK” PEREZ On Thusday last, the ILWU family lost one of their own sons. “Rick” Perez, a member of both Local 13 and Local 63 for 44 years, made his way home. Everyone that has had the privilege of knowing this man will tell you that he was a person that was always making people laugh. He was generous to a fault, always trying to give his family and friends the best that life had to offer. When it came to the union, the humor stopped, and he was a staunch supporter of the ILWU way of life on the waterfront. Rick was a member of the San Pedro Elks, the NRA, the North American Fishing Club and the Harley Davidson Owners Group. Hobbies included fishing, hunting and traveling. He was a man of many interests, but the most important time to Rick, was the time spent with family. Rick is survived by his devoted wife, Linda Dooley Perez, his loving stepson Keith Dooley, stepdaughter Sarah Dooley, son & daughter-in-law Brad & Ginny Perez and his grand children, who were so special to Rick; Luke, Ashlyn, Ethan and Logan. Also, loving sister Elaine Ohgi and husband Frank and niece Jenny, and nephew Daniel. In addition, there are 4 more sons, Michael McCowan, Michael Perez, Christopher Perez and Todd Perez. If he were still here, he would undoubtedly tell us not to worry and not to shed a tear, because his life was full, and his passions many, and he is served well by the memory that he leaves in our hearts. We ask that you remember us, and never lose sight of the fact, that you made a difference on this earth. Viewing and ceremony at Gamby Mortuary, 25001 Narbonne Ave. Lomita @ 7pm, Tuesday, February 9, 2010.
