Joseph M.  Perrella
Joseph “Joe” Michael Perrella, 83, formerly of Milford, CT, passed on peacefully Saturday, July 14, 2018 at St Mary’s Hospital in Waterbury. Joe was born September 14, 1934 in Milford, CT to the late Eugenia and Frank Perrella. After high school he joined the United States Air Force serving as a Senior Airman and would tell stories of his time in the Philippines Islands. Later, he retired from Raybestos Brakes in Stratford, CT as a lead machine operator. Joe loved spending his Saturday nights at the Waterford Speed Bowl, attending high school and college football games, loved rooting for the Red Sox, and hanging out at the Milford beaches. He had a contagious smile and never let the little things in life bother him. Joe is predeceased by his wife of 36 years Barbara Joyce and brothers Francis, Edward, and Lawrence. He is survived by his sons Joseph Jr. (New Haven), James and his wife Gail (Milford), step-daughters Karen Mera and husband Vic (Waterbury), Kelly Valdez and husband Chris (Henderson, NV), Kerry O’Connor and fiancé Dan (Bow, NH), 13 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. He is also survived by his sister Lois D’Addona and husband Sal (Tennessee) and many nieces and nephews. Calling hours will be held Wednesday July 18, 2018 from 5pm to 8pm at the Smith Funeral Home, 135 N. Broad St., Milford. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held Thursday July 19, 2018 at 9:30am at St. Gabriel Church, Milford. Interment with full military honors will follow at St. Mary Cemetery, Milford. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Down Syndrome Association of Connecticut P.O. Box 243 Meriden, CT 06450 in his honor.
