It is with heavy hearts we announce the death of Melvin Joseph Perry who died at the Dr. Everett Chalmers Hospital on Monday, October 16th, 2023. He was the son of the late Benjamin and Marjorie (Gibbons) Perry and the loving husband of Velvet Perry.
He is survived by his loving soul mate, Velvet; stepchildren, Larry McKiel of Maugerville and Charmain Case (Corey) of Sault Saint Marie, Ontario; grandchildren, Liam, Logan, Landen, Lawrence, Joshua, Jacob, Johnathan and Kana; one brother, Tommy (Mary) of Belldune, NB; three sisters, Donna Boucher (Roger Johnson) Margaret Madore (Joey) both of Minto, and Theresa Barton (Danny) of Fredericton.
In addition to his parents, Melvin was predeceased by his brother, David.
Melvin was a kind hearted individual; he loved family friends and especially spending time reminiscing about old times. He loved music, singing and sometimes writing songs. He had the unique ability to play anything he picked up, and with a grin he would say sure I can play that.
