A native of Cobourg, Percy came to the city in 1910.  He was prominent in local business and sporting circles. He played defence for the local Intermediate and Senior OHA teams. He became actively associated with the executive of the Peterborough Hockey Club including the 1926 OHA Senior Champions.  From 1917-1922 he was an OHA referee. He served on the OHA Executive from 1922 to 1937 (Vice President from 1930 to 1932 and President from 1932 to 1934). It was during his presidency that two new rules were enforced: forward passes in the “attacking” zone and puck carrier only may be body checked in the “defending” zone.  He served as the OHA representative on the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association and acted as the Ontario Athletic Commission representative on the Amateur Athletic Union of Canada.
