Joseph Paul Norman Perron Obituary
Joseph Perron, age 78, beloved husband, father, grandfather and uncle passed away peacefully on Thursday, May 10, 2018 at Redlands Community Hospital. He was born in Bidderford, ME on December 9th, 1939, relocating to Hartford, CT at the age of 21 where he met his wife. In 1968 they moved to Southern California where they raised their family together and resided for over 50 years.

Joseph served in the United States Air Force from 1958 to 1960, stationed at Whitman AFB, MO. His working career spanned 30 years in the construction industry. It began with the City of Rialto as a laborer and over time, with three private construction companies as a Teamster. He was dedicated to his trade and enjoyed the hard work. Once it became too much, he worked driving tractor-trailers for 8 years before making his retirement official.

During his years at the City, he attended night school and eventually graduated from San Bernardino Valley College receiving an Associate's Degree in Liberal Arts. He had a life long dream of becoming an architect - this might have been because of his love for drawing which came to him naturally. He led a simple life … loved his family, loved to camp, ride ATV’s and loved a good joke. Perhaps the one thing he loved the most was telling stories; watch out at a family gathering if he grabbed your ear … you’d hear it ALL!

Joseph is survived by his loving wife of 57 years, Marguerite and his children, son Mark (Sharyl) Perron, Highland, CA; son Paul (Marzia) Perron, Pordenone, Italy; Michele (Gilbert) Perron-Romo, Glendale, AZ; Christine (Darrell) Perron-Oliver, Desert Hot Springs, CA, along with six adored grandchildren, Alyssa (Cody) Cummings, Yucaipa, CA; Justin Perron, Highland, CA; Nathaniel (Ceira) Romo, Glendale, AZ; Frankie Romo, Glendale, AZ; Jordan Romo, Glendale, AZ; Dylan Romo, Glendale, AZ, three great grandchildren, his dog Marcie and other loving relatives and friends.

In honor of his wishes, there will be no formal services. The family will hold a celebration of his life on June 17, 2018 at 7073 Lawson Court, Highland, CA @ 1:30pm.
