Edward Ernest “Ed” Perron, age 88, of Nashua, NH, formerly a longtime resident of Centerville, MA and Chelmsford, MA, passed away on Thursday, January 14, 2021 at Langdon Place of Nashua, following a Covid virus infection. He was the beloved husband of the late Helen (Camara) Perron with whom he shared 50 years of marriage before her passing in 2009.

He was born on September 30, 1932 in Lowell, MA and was the son of the late Edward Hercules and Violet May (Denault) Perron and was raised in Dracut, MA.

Ed always lived by the “Golden Rule”; he treated everyone he met with respect and kindness. He was a Korean War era veteran serving in the Air Force. He was exceptionally proud to have served his country. He was stationed across Colorado, California, and Europe. As a member of the U.S. Naval Reserves, he continued what he felt was his civic duty.

After discharge he returned to Lowell, MA where he met Helen, the love of his life, at the Commodore Ballroom. Using his GI benefits, he became the first person in his family to go to college (Northeastern, 1969). When asked he always said his proudest accomplishment was “his family.”

Ed retired after a long career at Raytheon as a Logistics Engineering Manager, working in the Lowell, Waltham, Wayland, Sudbury, and Marlborough facilities.

Throughout his life Ed took pleasure in the outdoors, hiking and bicycling. He enjoyed listening to music and ballroom dancing. Ed loved animals. In his early married life with Helen, they bred German Shepherds. He enjoyed visiting historical sites, including state capital buildings and other activities including boating, owning a powerboat at his lakefront cottage in Groton MA and later a sailboat on Cape Cod. Active in the Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 11-8 on Cape Cod, Ed at one time held the position of Flotilla Commander. He was very active with the Barnstable Council of Aging. As a couple, Helen and Ed were supporters of public broadcasting and volunteered at their annual fundraisers. He donated time writing letters for human rights causes as a member of Amnesty International.

Ed was an active woodworker. He built Helen and his first home in Dracut, MA with his father. Some of his furniture he made himself. He enjoyed carving signs and decorative pieces. He and his wife loved to travel. Post retirement he enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren exploring Cape Cod and NH. Later in life, he enjoyed his annual trips to Quebec with his son, Philip.

He leaves behind his children, Paula A. (Perron) Sullivan, and her husband, Daniel Sullivan of Wall, NJ; Edward C. Perron, and his wife, Deanna (Roy) Perron of Dunlap, TN, Philip C. Perron, and his wife, Joanna (Dittmer) Perron of Amherst, NH. He was the grandfather of six, Amanda-Faye Perron of Seattle, WA, Christopher D. Sullivan of Wall, NJ, Nicholas J. Sullivan of Roswell, GA, Mallory-Anne Perron of Boston, MA, and Colette R. Perron and Vivienne H. Perron of Amherst NH and great-grandfather to Eloise J. Sullivan of Roswell GA.

In addition to his wife and parents, he was predeceased by, his son Christopher T. Perron and brother Roger A. Perron.
