On November 10, 2021 Mayor Don Mitchell and the Whitby Chamber of Commerce announced the 2021 Peter Perry Award recipient, Howard Humphrey, who was honoured posthumously. Mr. Humphrey, was known for being philanthropist who helped countless charities in the Durham Region.
“Howard was a most generous, kind and humble human being,” said Howard’s wife Stephanie who accepted on his behalf. “Nothing made him happier than when he would touch the hearts of those around him to help in any way, big or small. I honestly think he has the spirit of Peter Perry. If he was here, he would be honoured.”
