R.I.P. - Rodney A. Perry. Stamp Dealer and keen Collector.

Post by Global Administrator »

I was just advised by a colleague, speaking on behalf of the family, that Rod had passed away this morning in Cairns Queensland. As I recall he was aged early 70s.

Rod had been seriously ill for some time.

He was a valued senior member on stampboards, posting daily, and mentored very many members here, and I've known him for over 40 years.

Rod made near 4000 posts here in his 10 years membership, and his super detailed stamp knowledge and images posted here, will live on forever -

https://www.stampboards.com/memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=5180

Margo and I had lunch with he and Madel in Cairns in latter 2019.

A great man - an Encyclopaedia of stamp knowledge, that he was always ready to share here. Our condolences to Madel and his children, and family. R.I.P. Rod Perry.

Re funeral, given the current COVID regulations, re numbers possible under Federal law, (10) and the Queensland state lock down, ad 14 day isolation etc, and almost no flights to Cairns anyway, further advice will be posted here, if one takes place - which seems unlikely, due to those factors.

A lifetime trade colleague will add a summary of Rod's wonderful career on this thread later on. Rod was a past President of APTA, and ran our biggest stamp auction for many years. He had the vision and resources to expand and overhaul the superb ACSC Catalogue series.

Rod also was a keen collector all his life, and won a FIP Grand Prix D'Exhibition Award, and Gold Medals for his material. His collection of Victoria was truly world class.

Rest In Peace Rod, in that great cover hoard in the sky. :idea:

A very sad loss for the hobby, and one the GREAT characters and Gentlemen of the stamp business.

Farewell Rod - Glen and Margo


Image
Rod and Madel Perry in Cairns, August 2019, and grandson Raphael popped in at the end, for a photo taken by his mum Alana.

Rod and Madel built the most talked about home in the history of Australia Philately, in 75 acres of World Heritage Rainforest in the remote Daintree wilderness - ALKIRA. The swimming pool was shaped based on the famous One Pound Jimmy 2/6d Aboriginal stamp, that Rod loved the design of, as can be seen.

Very sad news indeed.

I will remember Rod as an icon of philately, a person ever ready to provide advice and assistance and a good bloke.

His considerable knowledge of many areas of philately was frequently displayed on this medium.

Personally, Rod regularly sought to encourage my collecting objectives and many times could find a scarce item for me.

Rod, Australian philately owes you an enormous debt, Rest In Peace, old mate.

I am saddened to learn of the passing of Rod. I must have met him at some stage during the past 40+ years at a stamp exhibition or two, though I do not remember doing so.

His activities and help on this board are well known and sadly there will be no more input here from Rod.

My sincere condolences go to this wife and family.

Very sad news. We have lost a giant of Australian philately, respected and admired as a collector, historian, exhibitor, auctioneer and dealer.

He had vast knowledge, which he was happy to share. His passion for philately spoke loudly through his publications, and here on Stampboards.

My condolences to his family.

Vale RAP

Rod was one of the great innovators of philately in Australia as well as a gentleman.

He started as a dealer by filling club sheets for Brighton Philatelic Society. Eventually he found he was make more money as a dealer than his full time job with the SEC of Victoria. He partnered in a shop and then at the grand old age of 23 started Rodney A Perry Auction Galleries in 1971.

The auction business prospered with highlights being the rarity auctions of late 1970s. The business continued - with a hiatus in the mid 1980s when Rod was heard to say don't ever let me go back into auctions! - until 2002 when it was sold to establish Millennium auctions by Paula - the current owner, and the late Arthur Gray and Paul Fletcher).

As a disciple of JRW Purves, Rod formed a phenomenal traditional collection of the stamps of Victoria (awarded Grand Prix 1984 Melbourne International Exhibition) - one of the greatest one country collections ever formed.

After selling his collection over time he drifted towards covers and postal history, revitalizing an interest in Australian FDCs and more importantly establishing an interest in "Usage" of stamps for their intended and often unintended purposes.

During the auction hiatus Rod became a cover dealer but easily bored, eventually missed the activity of the auction game so returned to it, moving back to central Melbourne.

In the 1990s he also bought the moribund Australian Commonwealth Specialists' Catalogue and employed Geoff Kellow to rewrite and greatly expand the slim volume that formerly existed.

He sold this along with the auction business but continued his involvement up until 2019 with the expansion of latest edition of the KGVI catalogue to include solo frankings on cover. His extensive stock and amazing philatelic memory provided a good basis for adding covers to the catalogue. Rod also enjoyed many of the social aspects of philately - and could drink more than I - see his epitaph for Arthur Gray.

Apart from philately Rod was interested in grand buildings as indicated by the Millennium Falcon building in the Daintree (illustrated), in the restoration of the grand villa Ravenswood, in East Ivanhoe, and the Tramways building in Bourke St, Melbourne.

His signature line here was - ‘Preserve DNA - retain covers intact. Scientists may be grateful! Commercial covers represent ‘Stamps in Action’. Philately’s last Great Frontier’.

Couldn’t agree more. Wish I’d met you, to talk about Norfolk Island covers.

RIP Rod.

That is very sad news. He was of enormous help to me with my fdc collection. He was a great guy.

If not for Rod I would not have this, he sent it to me ending a 25 year search:

Legend has it that Archer walked from Nowra to win the first Melbourne Cup.
He was a member of the Brighton Philatelic Society for nearly 60 years & I believe was the second longest living member of the club.

The Philatelic World will miss him.

Deepest sympathy to all of his family.

I had the pleasure of hosting Rod and Madel when they popped by Singapore in December 2017 for a few days while en-route to the Philippines.

Not surprisingly, he taught me the finer points of usage and encouraged me to exhibit my modest usage collection.

Rest In Peace, Rod.

Your comments, advice, guidance, knowledge, encouragement and inspiration will be sorely missed.

Such sad news! And although I only ever encountered him on this forum, I can imagine his greater contribution to philately, especially in Australia.

Who will now give such wonderful feedback and knowledge on posts across so many different areas? His willingness to help, and patience with a 'newbie', really encouraged me in my collecting, especially usage.

And I still have so many questions to ask!

Commiserations to all his family and friends.

Dreadful news!

I never knew Rod and only became aware of him through Stampboards, but here he came across as a helpful, knowledgeable member and one who commanded respect. His posts on stamp usage opened up an entirely new field for me and I shall always be grateful to him.

I had imagined him as a vigorous man in the prime of life, so his passing has come as a particular shock.

My condolences to his family. R.I.P.

RIP Rod.

I will long remember a very, very long lunch in Port Douglas near the Sugar Wharf in 2012 which, in his customary fashion, he paid for and refused my offer to split the cost. I told him I owed him one and despite catching up at Australia 2013 and other exhibitions after that we never caught up for a lunch or dinner.

It wasn't until I finally caught up with him at the Tin Shed in Port in 2018 that I could finally return his favour. It was again naturally a very, very long lunch :!:

Late last year I asked him what he had that would suit a single frame exhibit. He suggested decimal FDC's, which is way off my usual collecting areas. He said he'd bought Ian Baglin's entire stock of Excelsior FDC's and he might have something that would suit.

Shortly after that he sent through scans of Ian's 1970 National development FDC series, complete with all the original artwork for each of the covers. Thinking that they would be very expensive he then broadsided me with an unbelievably low price for the lot and said that he would rather they were exhibited than just gather dust.

That was typical of Rod and says a lot about the man.

Philately has lost a legend, our thoughts are with his family and many friends.

I'm so very sad to read this news. Like many here, my current preoccupation with usage on cover is in no small part due to Rod. No one banged the drum for usage like Rod.

Although I never met him, we did meet virtually on Stampboards and he was kind enough to answer even the dumbest questions. I also bought one item from him which will remain a treasured item in my collection.

Rest in Peace Rod.

Wonderful wisdom from Rod to myself a few years ago

"Note how the stamp in the subject scan would tell us very little if it were off piece?

The intact cover of course is the optimal collecting unit.

In this incessant age of IT demands, I find it curious that more collectors do not insist on intact covers (and other postal articles which reveal the essentials for interpretation of the point A to B journey) as the minimum requirement for inclusion of otherwise common used stamps in a collection?

Wow, sad news.

I only met him a couple of times (living on opposite sides of the world) but he was always helpful to this Australian collector in Canada.

It will take some time to dribble his massive cover accumulations onto the market. Look out.

Condolences to Rod's family and friends.

RIP Rodney A Perry
