Those who worked with John H. Percell at the Monterey Meat Co. said he was usually reticent about discussing his personal life. But last year, Percell, the firm's vice president, confided in some of them that he was worried that his 30-year-old son had a cocaine problem. "He was a very reserved man," recalled Judy Alcala, a secretary at the Monterey Park meat-packing company. "I guess it must have upset him so much that he would mention it."
