After graduating from Dumas high school in 1970, he attended the University of Arkansas at Monticello. Percy would later work with and beside his father on the family farm. In 1979, he produced his own first crop and would eventually assume responsibility of the entire family farm in 1981. After nearly 40 years of farming, he retired in 2018. Always a farmer at heart, Percy continued to work as needed alongside his brother Phillip whenever possible.
Percy loved to collect Native American artifacts. He also enjoyed landscaping and spent countless hours designing and improving the yard. When time allowed, Percy never passed up the opportunity to boogie down with the ladies at the local assisted living facility. He will be missed by all.
